Small place with character. Owner Erik is very friendly, as are the clientele, all locals when I visited. Great tap selections include Dutch micros plus one American IPA. Bottle list features the most extensive selection of lambic and geuze I have seen anywhere in the world outside Blegium, and rivals many places in Belgium itseld. Nice selection of single malt whiskies, homemade walnut liquer and kriek liquer, which suddenly appear out of nowhere. Definitely worth going out of your way for.

A beer named after rats, but they love their 2 house cats. Tap list isn’t great but a fun bottle list. Bound to find 1-2 you haven’t tried, but nothing really special. Decent stop with good service. They have lambic and wifi is spotty.

In my view, this is easily the best bar in Utrecht. It’s on a corner on one of the streets running off the main canal. It has large picture windows, a wooden floor and ceiling and traditional wooden furniture. It’s a very cosy and comfortable place and we immediately felt at home there along with the regulars. The bar staff are excellent - friendly and knowledgeable - and the owner, Erik, is delightful. You can also meet Josefine and Stip, the two resident cats who feature in a lovely little book about the café cats of Utrecht. In fact one of them is on the cover. Derat has 6 taps with four fairly standard beers, one of which is usually La Chouffe, and two guests. When we were there the guest beers were Tasty Lady (despite its rather cheesy name, a nice gentle IPA brewed by five women at Schelde), Maximus Pandora and, later in the weekend, Flying Dog Raging Bitch. Erik told us that following his visit to the Borefts Beer Festival at De Molen he was keen to try out more unusual draft beers, so watch this space. There are 21 bottles listed on the blackboard and, the pièce de résistance, a separate lambic and gueze list which ranks with the best. We had Boon Geuze Mariage Parfait 2007 at a bargain price of E5 and Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait 2008 for E8. They also have the ever reliable Orval and an impressive range of single malt whiskies. Apart from some delicious local cheese which was handed round, we didn’t try the snacks - sausage, cheese and toasties - but I’m reliably informed that they come from mainly locally sourced ingredients. (Last visited 30 September 2013).

We visited here on 25.09.11. When we popped in we were the only people in the Café apart from the Café owner who was just such a nice chap. He immediately came and sat near us and just chatted away. We’d barely known him 20 mins before he offered to add some Gueuze for us if we wanted onto an order he was doing and was going to pick up, we declined owing to space but suffice to say what a really nice chap. The range of beers wasn’t exhaustive though the lambic list was great, but the remaining list wasn’t shoddy either and was a nice list, the bar was situated on a corner and had a lovely ambience. I really liked this place. Visited here again 1st March 2012, Eric the landlord is such a friendly and welcoming chap, we hadn’t been there long and he was off upstairs getting a 3 Fonteinen Doesjel and then other great beers, we stayed here for quite a while. In my opinion this is easily the best of the bunch in Utrecht, it has a lovely atmosphere, is extremely welcoming and is just a warm happy place, loved it here on both occasions. I’m indifferent to cats but they are very entertaining in this pub.

Derat’s a small pub located not far from the main tourist canal in Utrecht. The ambiance is cosy, inviting. This place feels like its been around forever. The service is friendly. The proprietor approached me as soon as I entered the bar, and was quick to offer suggestions and advice. The selection is OK. The taps featured some rather mediocre Dutch micros. The sour bottle list, however, was more interesting. The pricing was a bit uneven. Some beers seemed to be good deals, others were priced pretty high. Overall, this is a good place to spend an hour or two. Recommended if you’re in Utrecht.

Visited september 2013. A very cosy, busy place. Great beer selection, both on tap but mainly the bottlelist was superb. Very friendly and serviceminded staff, that knows stuff about beers. Beers are well served and in good condition. The celler is under one of the tables, so when it is time to change a beer, guests have to move a bit around, but that then gives you the chance to have a tour around the celler :-)

Quite small cafe with seven taps and about 30 beers on bottles. Good crowd on a Sunday evening. The owner Eric was very nice, but beer wise I’d recommend Kafe Belgie.

What a great pub. Simple but sophisticated. Great bar lady who knew her beers. I tried a cheese plate which was served with a sweet chutney and a mustard! Cheese and mustard! Actually went quite well with the beer!

Stopped in here after a beer festival in the city. It took some weaving to get here from our hotel, so thankfully our guide knew where he was going. The bar is very cozy, and has a lot of what I expect of most european pubs that have been around a long time. One thing I thought was unique, was that they have two house cats that come in and out at their leisure. They have a predominantly dutch tap list and a nice bottle list as well. If you ask, they also have a lambic bottle list. I was able to get a bottle of HORALs mega blend for a very reasonable price. If ever you are in Utrecht, take the time to find this place and stay here for awhile.
