Visited 12/2013. Cosily packed at borreltijd right after work, decent tap selection (well above average compared to Belgian bars in cities this size) with a few fortunate rotating guest taps (SNAB PA, Anderson Valley Winter Solstice) at fair enough, upper end value. Good service, offering the occasional sample when showing interest in the blackboards. Nicely portioned variety cheese platter with very tasty pickled onions. House tripel Cleijne on tap is ok and goes well with the cheeses. Extensive jenever list consisting of a few vntages and 40% Belgians, where I was surprised to find a few of Gent’s Druppelkot. Stop that saved an early evening in pouring, windy Nijmegen.

Nice little bar, relatively close to the train station.
Wooden tables and chairs, with enough space between them so you’re
not getting crammed. 8 beers on tap and a good amount in bottles,
mostly belgian and dutch, with no surprises.
Some of the Oersoep beers that you have to ask or take a look
at the blackboard to see which is available at the moment.
Good service, professionally friendly. Prices are a bit higher than
what I am used to, at least on the bottles.

Good selection of Dutch and Belgian beers, would like to see more experimental craft selections. Too pricey for what they offer. Rotating tap beers are doable.

Nice café with more than average selection of beers. They have their own app for android and iphone of their beerbook, users can lookup and review the available beers.

Ambiance was a big let down since it was jam packed with loud and obnoxious students.
Beer selection was okay, nothing special or rare. Does have the local brew which I can definitely recommend (De Hemel).

What a jewel this place is a find selection of beers and a great place for a beer and meeting people. A better bar in this city is unlikely for the visitor.

Interesting bar in the centre of Nijmegen, typically for the town this bar offers a wide range of beers (somewhere like 60-80 bottles and roatating taps). Selection is good though most beers are well-known amongst ratebeerians. Worth a stop when in town. Ambiance is usually great here.

Update 4 Dec ’12: As they continue to improve their game, I thought an update was in place. Updated info and added a few points reflecting the changes.
Typical Dutch "brown cafe" appearance, cosy environment, well-dressed and friendly, rather knowledgeable staff. Good and decent selection of beers, mainly Belgian, Dutch, and American, some Germans. They are regularly rotating interesting beers on the tap and specialties list. There is more focus on small Dutch breweries and specialties, and nowadays there are a few bottles of Oersoep (the other Nijmegen brewery) on the list. Look for the blackboards over the bar.
A nice beer place to spend an evening, especially if you don’t want to leave the city centre.
They do habitually poor bottled beers at the bar, without serving the bottle with the beer. If you ask they will serve you the bottle though.
