I really like this place. It is confined, over two floors and everyone is always friendly. Bar keep suggested Rochefort Trappistes 10 and De Dolle Oerbier after I tore my way through the tap beers. One complaint: not everything advertised is available but selection very impressive nonetheless. The Cracked Kettle beer shop, right outside, was open until late, with a huge bottle selection.

Small and cozy bar with 15 or so taps and some bottles. They had mostly Belgian and German classics on tap with 4 loca crafts. The prices are Amterdam-average, the guy at the counter was nice.

Small dark place that looks well lived-in. Central bar dominates, with bar stools on two sides including in the front window. Restaurant tables on a higher platform. A dozen or so taps but the one I wanted wasn't working. They also had only one of the bottles I ordered from the bottle list, which is scattered around the place on chalkboards, and is therefore very difficult to update. Old school selection of the usual Belgian and Dutch specialists. Very nice cheese plate. Worth a stop.

If you are anywhere near Rembrandt Square you must visit Cafe Gollum. Their service is excellent and they have an excellent selection (~300) of high end beers. A limited but decent food selection.

Visited on a Saturday when the place opened at 12:00. A small and dark place with quite a lot of character. The location was good as was the selection. I prefer these kind of places more and more.

Place with old school feeling short walk from the center. Service is good. Selection is good, but reading the walls for bottle list is tiring. Prices are reasonable. Orval is still 4.80 like in another location (so i guess other beers are similarly priced as well). Overall: good place to have a beer, has a soul.

Gezellig klein tentje, met 14 bieren op tap. Prijzen zijn ok. Kan wel erg druk en vol worden.

A cozy little place with a nice seat by the window. I had to squeeze past other patrons to find a seat, but once there, it was within an arm’s distance of the bar and bartender. A good selection of Belgians which is what I wanted. My only disappointment was that the Westvleteren XII that was listed on the board was not available. Even this close to the source, I guess that one is hard to come by. Nonetheless, the bartender had other excellent similar beers to recommend. Friendly service. English-speaking. Worth coming back to. (Updated) I did come back - twice, and the second time found the Westy XII. Still a great bar, though the bartender this night was rather grumpy.

Cozy little place with the Sam old list as many of the. Maybe less. For. Nice quiet beer in a quirky spot, this hits the spot, but otherwise there are many other good places.
