Looking for a beer bar in Leiden? You just found it! Bierlokaal de Veste has more than 200 beers to offer. We’re situated 3 minutes from Leiden Central Station by foot, or a 15 minute train ride from Schiphol and a 30 minute train ride from Amsterdam.

Craft beer cafe with 200+ bottled beers and 18 tap beers [H2]

As of now we’re able to serve you over 200 different specialty beers from all over the world, from Rio de Janeiro to Krakaw and from Vancouver to Tartu. With 18 taps we’re working hard to have our menu as diverse and surprising as we can. Both the most recent IPA and the most traditional Belgian Trappist are found in our beer bar in Leiden. We also offer local beers, crafted by the hard working crew at Pronck from two streets down the road. We keep our menu updated with every change we make, so have a look here.

Reasons why you should visit Leiden and this craft beer bar

Of course, Leiden has way more to offer than our craft beer bar. There are tons of restaurants scattered all over town along the beautifully preserved architecture in our historical city centre. We’d be glad to help you find your route through town!

Beer Tastings

In our craft beer cafe we aim to offer service that is catered specifically to your individual wishes and preferences. As an example, we have hosted a bunch of beer tastings with a large variety of focus, food pairings and other wishes. Whether you don’t know where to start with all of these beers around you or whether you’d like to surprise your company with a selection of craft beers they probably haven’t seen before, you’re more than welcome to inquire about a beer tasting fit to your wishes through e-mail and WhatsApp. Or just drop by, of course!
