I was happy to find I was next door to the first Belgian beer bar in Netherlands. They have most of the Trappist beers and weekly specials. Prices can be steep and some choices sell out. It can be very crowded at times so stake your claim or else you'll be standing. Most beers will be bottled and sometimes that... More

Not as grungy and dive bar as some of the other Gollem venues. 22 taps, a mixed bag and perhaps a little pedestrian. Pricing in line with comparable bars. A broad and mixed crowd on a Monday afternoon. Bottle list gives more airplay to local craft but for the most part focuses on classic Belgians. Relaxed vibe, I quite liked... More

This place has so many types of beer to try, you could never get through them all! OK the place is tiny and you are lucky to get a seat but it has that old Amsterdam charm and great service that you wont find anywhere else! Def worth a try :)

Simple and cozy place. Big selection of beers. Had sandwiches and fries, fries enough to share. Croque madam was tasty. Lady who worked in the afternoon was very friendly, after the shift-change the staff was more distanced. Overall a good lunch place!

This pub has a great selection of Netherlands and Belgian beers. The food is typical Dutch pub food but well presented and well above average quality with reasonable prices.

Gollem has an extensive range of draft and bottled craft and Belgian beers. It's got a modern yet cosy interior. This Gollem is situated on Overtoom, a short walk from Leidseplein and the Vondelpark. Well worth a visit if you are a discerning beer connoisseur.

Popped into here for a weekday afternoon and it was quiet. I had the meat board which came with pate, gherkins and bread which was great value at 8 euros. Great beer range too with plenty of beers on tap.

We were in Amsterdam for a little under 2 days, staying at friend's apartment on Overtoom. We ducked in to this bar just to escape a passing bit of rain. Enjoyed the place so much that we came back the next day. They have 22 Belgian beers on tap and many more in bottles. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and... More

Took super long to get drinks. In the meantime the waitresses friends came in sat down got served immediately. We... More

Nice lunch. Tasty hamburger and a variety of beer. The pub has a house cat so if allergic, take care.
