Can’t fault the range of beer at ’t Klooster. All the stars are represented - everything from De Molen, Struise, De Dolle to our favourite Trappist ales. Pleasant cafe for a beer or many more. I visited around opening on a Tuesday so was quiet but I could imagine it gets very lively here. Nice one.

We visited Klooster on Thursday 8th October 2015 after popping by the nearby bottle shop. This is a great little café bar situated in a quite lovely area of Delft, it is by the canal on the corner of Vlamingstraat and Vrouwenenregt and just across the canal from Doerak.
The beer choice here is huge with well over 300+ bottles according to the bartender/(owner?) I was amazed to see such a great selection of even hard to get US, Italian and other beers really impressive with many vintage bottles also. The café is on a corner and appears quite an old building, it isn’t big, but it’s cosy with a few tables and chairs around the outside, some stools at the bar and a couple of chairs and tiny tables out the front. It’s quite dark inside which adds to the atmosphere with beer lists seemingly all round the bar area and also above the fireplace.
We sat in here with a couple of beers which I had let the barman recommend to us. There were two other small groups in here. This would be great sat in here in the depths of a cold, biting winters day. This is one of my favourite cafés on this trip it blends a wonderful cosy intimate bar with a lovely atmosphere with a quite astonishingly good beer list. I would be extremely surprised if even the most hardened of raters couldn’t find something now for them in here.
A great bar a 1-minute walk from the also excellent Doerak. Atmospheric interior. Large bottle list with several rarities, but when we decided on letting ourselves tempted by the belgian 750s, they did not have any left and that seemed to be the case with most rarities. Still, an exquisite, charming little place.

A lovely little place, close to the main square with a very interesting selection of beers from around the world. Lots of beers I’ve never even heard of before.
Very nice small bar in the old cozy area of Delft. About 8 taps with some trappist, abbey ales, and 1 or 2 locals. Big and good bottle selection with locals (De Molen) to Belgains, Trappists, Cantillon, 3 Fontainen, etc. Some Danish and American beers aswell. Good service, taht speaked a fine english. Fine prices, possible to buy bottles to take away. Didnt eat.

Great little bar in the center of Delft with a fantastic beer selection. Klooster wins out not on quantity but the quality of the selection with many rare and interesting beers that are difficult if not impossible to find elsewhere.
The owner Helmer is extremely knowledgable, helpful and clearly passionate about beer.

Old livingroom style. Not a large selection, but some good beers from tap and some specialties from bottles. Nice cheese available. Friendly staff. Very nice.
