“Not for the faint hearted”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

This bar is an experience to say the least. The owner prides himself on being able to find you the perfect beer after asking you a few questions about the tastes of beer that you like not the colour or strength. In our group of 6 he made great choices for us all. The peanuts and the peanut shells are not limited to this bar and it does take some getting used to but in our experiene all the bars only gace them to beer drinkers. Go in with an open mind and give it a try :-)

“Our one negative experience in 5 days in Maastricht”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We walked past this bar a few times as it was near our hotel. It looked appealing and we decided to go in one evening after we had had wine with our dinner. There was about 10 customers in the bar and the owner (probably) was sitting at the bar having a drink and a cigarette. He made a big deal of extinguishing his cigarette & getting up to go behind the bar and serve us. Then he was extremely rude to us when we ordered two glasses of wine and made a big show of taking down the wine glasses and serving us wine. we discovered after we sat down that this was one of three famous beer places in Maastricht so that this was probably his objection to us. There were peanut shells all over the floor and each person in the bar seemed to have a bowl of peanuts in front of them, we wanted to ask for some so waited until he got up to serve his next customer. We were told that they were only for people who drank beer. I offered to pay but he just said no. We have never been spoken to so rudely and made feel so unwelcome by somebody in the hospitality industry and we quite shocked by his attitude towards us. It is a pity that we had this experience because in every other bar and restaurant we visited (see reviews) the staff were so welcoming and friendly.
