Visited on a Thursday afternoon to have a chat with the very helpful and friendly owner Dean. Small shop in a small street just off the main streets of central The Hague, focus on a good range of Dutch small breweries with some occasional foreign rarity. Decent prices, friendly atmosphere, some brewing equipment lying around here and there adding to the charm of the place. Thanks again for all the info Dean, and see you around!
Visited for a tasting on 24/09/15.
Small shop with a great selection of NL beers and others from around Europe. Prices were good and Deanso was quick to point out the Black IPA’s. Shame he has moved on.
Very small, but cozy beer shop in the city centre close to central station. Mainly focused on small Dutch micros which are hard to find elsewhere. Prices are decent and the service is great. Sad that this nice store is going to close down.

Let me at a review real quick while I still can. The most dedicated beer shop in The Hague. Which will be missed therefor!
Visited on a Friday afternoon on summer. Small beer shop with nice selection of mostly Dutch beers, but also from other European countries and from USA. Easy to find and very close to the central station. Probably the best beer shop in The Hague.
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.
A small, cellar-like shop between the Plein and the city hall, ABC Beers is very well-stocked with a good range. We visited for a pre-Borefts beer tasting and received a great welcome by Dean, the owner. Highly recommended.

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 ?
Located in the center of Den Haag. The placelooks a bit like a big garage, the interior is minimalistic. Nice selection of the better Dutch micro’s and also nice beers from the uK and Belgium. Prices are fair, Dean the owner was very helpful and friendly. Solid shop..
