Visited on Saturday 26/09/15 on the way back from BBF, having ticked everything we needed, we arrived around 4pm.
Small bar, lots of wood on offer, muzak themed pictures adorn the walls. Quiet atmosphere but a good hald dozen locals around the bar. Despite the large bottle count, we only picked up 3 or 4 ticks, largely tried and trusted Belgo offerings - a shame they didn’t stock some NL micro stuff. Lady behind the bar was friendly. Overall not worth the detour but the best of the 3 bars we visited in Leiden - 7 or 8 minutes walk from the station.
8 taps (1 Leidsch). Reasonable amount of bottles. Nice prices. Very dark after sunset. No lights only candles on the tables. Couple of customers on Sunday night. Music wasn’t that loud at least it wasn’t disturbing. The place wasn’t that dark when visited on bright daylight the day after. I would visit again.
Small busy bar with a decent beer selection mixed with some good rock music, played at an acceptable level. Stayed here for more than 1 beer, a qulity stamp in my book.

As close as Leiden gets to a beercafe, the only place in town you’ve got much possibility of seeing De Molen on tap. Bottled beer range seems to be diversifying a little a present, possibly in conjunction with De Bierwinkel.
Visited on a Sunday evening, nice small beer cafe quite close to Leiden central station. Decen beer selection, the beer of the month was a Rogue beer on tap plus a nice selection of the classic bottles. Prices are quite decent as well, especially for stuff you’d expect to be expensive. Staff was friendly. Would return.

The classic Leiden beer bar has improved a little over the years with the addition now of a Maximus tap and other bottles beyond the obvious Belgian stuff. It’s a small and pretty dark place with a small (mostly smoking) outside are and some decent music playing. Certainly worth a quick visit when in Leiden.
It was a cold and wet (typically Dutch) day when we foudn Lemmy’s biefcafe, but we found a great selection of beers, a good server, and even a fake fire blazing on the big screen TV in the back. It didn’t hurt that David Bowie was playing in the background either...
