One of the better Gollem bars, feels like a locals bar, a few interesting beers, still mainly Belgian focus. Decent prices for Amsterdam.

Pretty much what I would have expected from a Gollem bar. Brown, wooden and with a decent enough but unexciting selection focused heavily on the Belgian side. Nice enough place that I’d be happy to have a beer in, but wouldn’t go there expecting to find anything new.
Medium-sized and inviting beer bar with a focus on Belgian beer. Most of the classics can be found here, including trappists, lambics and flemish sours. The selection is quite large with more than a hundred bottles and about a dozen taps. Other beers are some classic German Weizen, some standard Americans as well as a few local and other Dutch from smaller brewies. Prices are quite okay for a bar in Amsterdam. Quiet atmosphere, at least on a thursday night, friendly and quick staff and overall just a nice place to enjoy a few beers.
Visited once after a party at Butcher’s Tears, had hit it quite hard already. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of talky friendly people at the bar, had some laughs, drank some random unfamiliar beers, had a good time.
A fairly nice, new place made into brown cafe style (I suppose?). A few cats around. Bartender is nice. The place seems to not attract a lot of people. Always quiet when visited. Taps didn’t have too much of interesting stuff around. The usual, good stuff, but nothing that special.
A cosy bar, not dissimilar to Gollem in Raamsteeg in that they’re both quite small and both have a little raised gallery area. This one is a bit more basic but looks rather eerie from the outside - it’s hidden under a dark green awning and you enter through a heavy, dark red velvet curtain. They have 14 taps and the service was very friendly.
