The available beers at Taplokaal Gist

Taplokaal Gist

A few of the best things in life are beer and food and - what’s even better - beer and food combined. That’s what they do at Taplokaal Gist in Utrecht. There are 30 taps with a changing selection of craft beers and beautiful food that can be served – ask the staff – with a matching beer. Apart from the 30 taps, there is also a fridge with an interesting beer collection.Read more…
The available craft beers at Stavio

Stavio

A place visited by locals should be good right? The main reason for the big crowd though was because of a band called the The Pischellis that was about to perform.Read more…

Brody’s American Taphouse

In 2017 two new craft beer bars opened in The Hague, Anna's Bar and Brody's American Taphouse. It's the latter I want to highlight. Most recently this location was a coffeeshop called Cremers but the owner decided to move that venue to the basement and the upstairs area became this new temple of hops which is of course completely smoke free.Read more…
