Very expensive shop, with a lot of American imported goods, mainly (if not all) food items. A lot of which are past date. Some are in the sales section because of that reason, others are just in the shelves and bad luck if you forgot to check. (Had some Reeses Butter Cups that were 11 months past date and really disgusting.) Most of the stuff doesn’t have a price. The few American and Scottish (Brewdog) beers that are here, are also available at Delhaize or Albert Heijn, and cheaper as well. So, actually not much of a reason to come here...

I didn’t even realize that this place was up on RB. This place is open only a couple of days per week mainly when the other stores are closed like Sunday. The deal is here that the owner arranges every couple of months to have a couple of containers shipped from the USA. Usually this concerns American food stuff that can withstand the apocalypse. Stuff like Oreo’s, hot sauces, canned pie filling etc. Most of the stuff is crazily expensive in my opinion, a lot of it seems more like a novelty than anything else but lots of people (mainly Americans living briefly here) stop here. As far as beer goes, he usually gets macro. One of the macro brands will be something like Coors & the others will be strangely mainly Mexican Macro’s like Dos Equis, you get the drill. Given his mode of operation, selection changes rarely & is mainly limited to 5 – 6 brands, the display is a bit disorderly. I think it is something like 2 € and a bit for a bottle. As far as beer goes, this place is okay to pick up a few pricey Macro tick’s but absolutely nothing you should ever bother with unless if for some odd reason you happen to be very close to it. There are no other worthwhile beer destinations nearby so there is no other place visit you can combine with this one. So yeah, very pointless overall for beer unless if you are desperately craving fro Coors Light.

Rather expensive place that sells a fair amount of foodstuff that’s usually past its shelf life.
