Gastropub Helst Amsterdam: a paradise for true beer lovers in the Pijp

all fun people gather at gastropub helst amsterdam

Gastropub Helst Amsterdam is a beer walhalla that will surely surprise you. After more than half a year of trial, the food menu and more importantly; the drinks menu are done and they are ready for beer lovers like us. With 30 beers on tap and 45 on the bottle there is something for everyone. It differs from a heavy black IPA to a light tropical, fruity sunset beer. But the non-alcoholic, gluten-free or a low percentage of alcoholic beers are not a bad choice either!

Ps: Helst’s location may have made you thinking. Previously you could visit The Watheringhole here. They got a new name, new concept and changed the interior into new vibes. The two owners of Gastropub Helst Amsterdam work with a lot of different beers. They love to introduce you to small beer breweries from all over the world. And is the barrel of your favourite beer empty? No worries! On big screens you can live follow how many beers are left and what to order instead. This way you can’t forget what you liked either! We loved number 23 ;-).

gastropub helst amsterdam is more than just a beer pub

Gastropub Helst Amsterdam is not just a paradise for anyone who loves a cold beer: on the menu you can find good comfort food. Treat yourself to nachos with salsa, guacamole and meatballs, the avocado salad with fresh coriander sauce or the filled mini pumpkin with sweet potato, cranberries, walnuts and Taleggio cheese. We also loved the beef burger with beetroot, pineapple, bacon and cheese. Hmm! Of course, the real taste adventurers are choosing the cooked mussels with leek and curry herbs in white beer.

Do you already get stress from overchoice, just like us? Then ask the bartenders for a sample of a beer or ask them for advice for the perfect taste combination with your dish! Thanks to them we found out that the pale ale with coffee aroma was delicious with our chocolate dessert, we recommend that one ;-). Would you like to have a nice beer for at home? Then go to Bierbaum. These two locations located at the Sarphatipark and in the Jan Pieter Heijestraat are also run by Gastropub Helst Amsterdam!
