The owner is a special one i asked for pannepot beer, he didnt have it, i told him give me any other beer but not heineken. He really was pissed of and didnt serve anything. He was also angry and agressive towards my friends because they rang his doorbell haha. Well you can say he has no humour, i think there are better places in maastricht

Beautifully decorated cosy little bar. Never drunk the same beer once in this place (and I’ve been here many many times): they keep changing their selection and the owner’s knowledge of pairing beers and exploring other characteristics of beers you’ve tasted before is a big plus. Downside is his mood...

This place has been on the market for three years now but they cannot sell it because people come here for Piet and Mery, who run it. He may be an arrogant dick but he always has been. I see him as the antithesis of the out-the-peg sycophantic crowd pleasers found running most businesses nowadays. The failure to ban smoking is just railing against the machine. It’s a thoughtful beer range too.

Wait... I dint rate this strange place in Mtricht ? OK what to know about this place: you either like the owner or you hate him.
He told me this:
You come voluntarily inside and you drink(and pay) the beer I give/choose for you or you pay the beer and leave and I drink it....
(translation is a b*tch i know) But it sums up the guy. On the beer side its decent enough a bit expensive maybe.

Gonna keep this short. The owner is an arrogant dick. The selection is sub par. Smoking is allowed inside. Asked for a menu, was told I did not know any of the beers they had on hand and that they had to select for me. Basically they told me I didnt know anything about beer and couldn’t choose a beer for myself. Do not recommend.

worse bar of maastricht. selection is standard. worse part of this place is the bar tender. guy thinks he’s the beer guru in craft beer. while he only has beers like every other beer bar. just go to that ’other’ bar in maastricht.

Nice place with a good selection of mostly Belgian and Dutch microbrews. One of the owners is a true beer guru, I stood amazed on how much he knew about beer. Apparently, he is a zytholoog. (qualified beer expert)

This is indeed a weird place. The ordering procedure has been described in the previous ratings so I won’t repeat it. I must say I didn’t like the way the place was run. The beer selection was good but getting the beers was too complicated. Also, the cigarettte smoke was distubing.

A must-visit. The place – and everything in it – is subject to the owner and his wife. Be wary of that. You have nothing to want here. Peet, the owner, will determine that for you. Paradoxically, this is exactly the beauty of this place and the perfect formula for an hilarious evening. The owners have a true passion for beer, especially of the Belgian variety. Peet travels through Belgium in his van to purchase the stuff for your pleasure. What you have to do is simple; go in, take a seat and tell them your taste. After some insults, folklore, weird stories or pseudo-scientific debates about the properties of beer, you will be served a lovely beer. The point is that you don’t pick your take, but explore the world of beer and get to know the unknown. Who better to guide you in this than Peet?
If you’d like some cheese or sausage to eat with your beer, just bring it yourself as Peet "can’t be bothered to slice it for you". He’ll join in of course. Otherwise you can devour a mountain of peanuts and throw the caps on the floor.
The place is charmingly small and decorated with beer caps and all sorts of beer related trinkets. The bathroom is decorated with them as well, but only of beers he no longer serves. Ultimately, when in Maastricht this is the place to go.
