We visited here Wednesday 6th June 2012 it was the first bar that we visited in Maastricht. We sat outside though I did have a look at the inside. The beer list was decent but it is clear that there are also a good few beers in stock that are not on the beer list. I noticed a beer that I had never seen in the fridge downstairs and mentioned this to the landlord, he said I could have this if I wanted though he had a better beer to suggest for me to try which was not on the list, I took him up on his offer and had a very nice Peelander I think it was called. I had also had a Kriek Boon on tap, Loz had Orval. The service from the girl who initially served us and the chap who I guess is the Manager/Landlord was great, he liked to joke with you but was good fun. This place is also very close to Cafe Frape which is a 2 minute walk away on the same street but closer to the river and a little further from the bridge. You could go to this and Cafe Frape and not go anywhere else in Maastricht and be very happy. I would definitely return here again if in the area.

This is one of the best bars in Holland and is part of the ’Alliantie Van Bier Tapperijen’, which means ’the alliance of draught beer cafes’, more or less.
It has 12 beers on tap and 55 bottles to choose from, a mix of Dutch and Belgian brews. Gulpen is the house brew, I started with their Dort, very good!
Located on the banks of the river Mass, with just an outside drinking area, a road and bike rack away from falling in.
Lots of beery adverts and posters on the walls, 12 mini barrels sit above the long bar, each with the tap beers name on and the correct glass under, so you can choose by beer or the look of its glass. We knew the beers, so the glasses were of secondary interest.
The food selection is also impressive. We had the ’Abbey Platter’ to eat which was very good, ham, pate and cheeses from various abbeys with bread and salad bits.
All in all, a very good pub.

It was carnaval during my visit, for which they only served gulpener pilsener. Medium beer-list, reasonable amount of taps. Seemed like an ok bar.

Located very central, close to the river. Interior is quite nice, the selection of beer is mainly Belgian, but good. Staff is fast but not overly friendly. Food is good for in a bar. In general not extremely special, but certainly a nice place to have a beer when in Maastricht.

Beautifully located on the banks of the Maas river, right across from the bridge to and from the railway station. If it’s a nice day you can sit outside and look out over the water. Inside the woodwork is beautiful. My favorite thing were the small barrels above the bar.
Selection is good as well, and they have the ABT beer of the month and some local ones.
They also give you a small dish of peanuts, something a lot of bars in Limburg seem to do.

Visited in the early afternoon. I immediately felt at home here. Very nice bar with a warm atmosphere, brown pub like but a bit lighter. Nice classy interior, beautiful bar with kegs arranged near the ceiling, showing what’s on tap, and tables arranged next to the walls. Not a large selection of bottles, but some rarities and mostly quality beers, all served in the proper glassware. Will definitely re-vistit next time in Maastricht.

Reasonable selection right next to the river, with a lovely view especially at sunset. Some good belgians and some reasonably undiscovered beers on tap. Bartenders are very pleasant and only a little fussy

Warm, convivial, brown-pub atmosphere, friendly barman, interesting choices among taps and bottles not a terribly long list, but quality. Didn’t try the vlaai. I liked the fact that there were some interesting Dutch beers as well as Belgian. One of the only places you can find the Double Saison. Recommended.
