    Amsterdam: Bierkoning. Probably the best beer shop in the whole of continental Europe.

    Antwerp: none to speak of. Some random off-licenses that carry interesting stuff. The one next to Gollem has the occasional Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen, but nothing crazy.

    No, there's a Gollem in Antwerp now too. They opened it when both the Amsterdam branches were closed for a while.

    Lots of taps and some nice Dutch beers, but obviously not in the same league. They're basically too different to call one or the other. If you have time for one: Kulminator.

    Depending on your needs, I can probably set you up with some bottles ! Let me know, I'm 20km outside of Antwerp !

    Kulminator for the beer selection, Gollem for the cosyness :slight_smile:
