After you have finished doing the Grand Tour of the three recognised Beer Bars (‘t Proeflokaal, Locus Publicus & ‘t Kloosters Café) in Delft, located in the South Holland province of the Netherlands. You should come here.

Soon, after many, many hours of drinking & some great Belgium & Dutch beers, it will be time to head back to the Train Station, and return from whence you came.

This happened all too suddenly for me. So much so, that I had that niggling urge that just said – go on, grab one more beer whilst you’re here, you know you don’t need it, but you’re in Delft! - And it may be a very long time before your return here.

Well, maybe this is the ideal place to get that “beer that you don’t need – but want”. It’s directly on the way back to Delft Station from ‘t Kloosters.

From the outside, I have to admit that the word “Bierhuis” in the red word on black painted sign was more than enough to entice a very drunk Bum & his old mate from the UK inside. What a great idea, more beer ;-)

From the outside it is barely 12 feet wide, has an offset doorway to the right, with a wooden sign, profiled and painted like a Chef type Geezer holding a board. A bike rested against the window on the left. It was getting dark.

Inside. I stand by my description in my BA Article; this IS the Wand Shop from the film Harry Potter & the Sorcerers Stone. This was Olde Worlde at its best, small, cramped & lots of small creaky wooden Tables and Chairs, Settles and a ton of burning Candles emitting a warm orange glow in the dimly lit interior. Fantastic!

A wizened looking John Hurt served us. With help from the Las Vegas branch of CSI, I have since deciphered my Notes for this day. I had “Gulpener Lentebock” here. The Beer List is about 20 or so (I think).

Nothing special, more of a Pub than a Beer Bar, but when you have overdosed big style in the 3 Excellent Beer Bars in Delft, it’s a great place to grab a pre-Train beer & relax. You know you will sleep well on the Train home and maybe even catch the THALYS train at Rotterdam by mistake, like we did - & get surcharged €24,80 back to Brussels. Happy Times.
Was it really nearly a year ago!?
