Loved the location on the canal side (western bank) and we were well served. Only about 10 minutes walk of the main station.

Rerate: visited again a couple of times this year. Quite poshy atmosphere, will probably always stay that way. Outside they have a nice patio alongside the street, but the best is next to the canal. More tourists will be there in summer and it is a nice place to hang out. Quite decent food available as well as very nice finger food (bittergarnituur), although it is not cheap. Beers are mainly German and Belgian styled and although not very interesting, decently made. I prefer their Ouwe and Jonge Daen, which are the hefeweizen and kristallweizen. Service is ok, mostly quick. Dont count on knowledge about the beers more than basic style. About 4 of their beers usually available. Decent place.
Original rating: Quite poshy people are coming here. Very nice to give a party inside, but not for getting a beer with your friends.

I visited last night. Very close to the train station. They have some tables outside. Inside a big hall with very high ceilings, and huge chandeliers hanging from the roof and lighting the place. It was quite for most of the time but there were a couple of big groups utnill I left. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Service was good, although they were coming a bit too often on our table, asking if we wanted another round or food. Speaking of food, I didn’t have any but their menu seemed to me a little expensive. That was not the case with their beers though which were priced quite reasonable. Some of their beers available in bottles as well to take away.

(Visited July 2013) Large beer hall and restaurant centrally located in Utrecht. The place is a large beer hall, with additional seating outside. On my visit mainly inhabited by shoppers on their way home. Service was friendly and swift, but didn’t seem to know much about beer. They had 4 taps of their own beers, quality was average. Food was ok. Worth the visit for a couple of new ticks.

Visited during the RBESG, 1st day.
Nice atmosphere, but very crowded. Focus is on the food, the beers seem to be more of a gimmick to draw a crowd. The beers aren’t bad - but very safe, not exciting and they don’t really seem use it in / with their food.
Still, the staff is friendly and the food wasn’t bad.

A large restaurant/brewpub alongside the central canal, absolutely packed during our visit. Not really a place I’d go to for rating beers, as they were mostly average and the atmosphere is a bit stuffy.

A cool castle that certainly has a aged atmosphere. Friendly staff with decent enough beer. The food seems decent. Not a bad brewpub. No info on their beers.
