Gollem's Proeflokaal

Brown Cafe in Vondelpark & the South

Hugely popular with locals and tourists for its long list of Belgian beers, this long-standing favourite (literally, 'Gollem Tasting'), is where you can settle down to sip a Kriek (cherry beer) or a Trappist ale amid vintage beer signs and paintings of tippling monks, and soak it up with dishes like Trappist cheese fondue, croquettes and Flemish stew.

All up there are 30 beers on tap and over 250 bottled varieties.
