Nice to have a high quality beer shop, close to my house. An impressive start, with a wide selection of Dutch microbrews all in one place.

Very nice to finally have a decent beer shop in The Hague. Very enthusiastic and friendly shopkeepers, knowing a lot about beer and very passionate about their shop. Nice selection of mostly Dutch micobreweries and some rare foreign stuff. They also have great plans for brewing workshops and beer tastings. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you arrive in The Hague by train as they are located at a less then 5 minutes walking distance from the central station.
Finally a place to buy craft Dutch beers right in the center of the Hague!
They offer wide selection of Dutch brewers which you won’t easily find anywhere else and some international beers (Mikkeller is among them).
The owner is a nice guy, and knows about the beers a lot.
The only downsize - I always spend too much money there :(

Fabulous selection of Dutch beers. Very knowledgable owner. Good prices.
Been looking forward to this one, as I’ve known Dean since before and he is a great guy .
The fact you know him, makes rating ’service’ irrelevant . we all know he is a knowing guy, with passion for beer .
He actually was able to tell which beers I should / should not ( perhaps even more important ) buy, by knowing me and my ratings . THAT is service !
Dean opened his shop for it to be thrashed by internationnal beergeeks . Upon getting perhaps a bit drunk, we discovered the amazing amount of bottles that have been stocked up , in this very , very little place . some of them are OK ( karmeliet, deus, ... the easy ones ) yet some of them are specials ( BA emelisse , some US stuff , ... ) all at very fair prices . Keep in mind though , this is a ’tourist’shop , not a warehouse, so prices might be found lower elsewhere. yet compare it with other shops of this kind, and this is sharp-priced . I love it . Its not perfect, but hey, what is ?
Quite close to Den Haag Central station. Locked in a seemingly less popular side street. They had beer cooking in the middle of the store, causing the place to smell quite intensely of wort. I quite liked it. No other costumers there & police service. Selection wasn’t big but quite interesting. BE (I didn’t pay attention but they actually had something I hadn’t seen or had before & I have had close to 2000 Belgian beers, most Belgians were the usual stuff), interesting selection of NL craft, sadly only one from Het Uiltje at the moment which I was hoping to find but I am nit-picking here because I did see plenty interesting stuff here. They had Schneider & I actually saw a couple of interesting Spanish beers here including 1 RIS which I took with me. The had a bunch of random UK beers & a handful of interesting USA beers. Nicely enough a lot of the beers were from the beaten path which is always nice to see. I am curious about the beers which I took home. Shop seemed a bit worn down. Bank machine was out of the work. Prices were standard for NL I think. The quite interesting & nicely put together selection makes this an essential stop for the beer in the neighborhood.
