This adorable bar has a unique atmosphere and uncountable diversity of beers. One of the most remarkable things about this place is that it is located in the building of an old church and that makes the atmosphere very special. I would say that it is like a Beer temple.

This bar is located in an old church in the centre of Utrecht. The selection of beers was fantastic including some local brews. We found the staff here extremely helpful and friendly and they went out of there way to find the specific beers that suited my partners taste. We would certainly return if back in Utrecht.

This pub and restaurant is located in the centre of Utrecht and has a very nice historical old church ambiance. Mostly busy especially in the weekends. The meals are ok but i prefer to go for the various kinds of beer and other drinks.

Set in an old church the setting is beautiful. The rest (service, drinks and food) is al ok, but not more then ok. They don't really seem to try hard because they know people will come anyway because of the setting. It is nice, but could be much nicer

This bar is a "must stop" location and a great place to take visiting family or friends. Welcoming staff, a lively atmosphere, and what an interior. An Utrecht gem.
