About

We Love Bier.

Cafe Hollander is proud to be a grand café in the style of those found throughout the Low Countries, especially the “Benelux” region of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. These European grand cafés are comfortable places where neighbors can meet over a cup of espresso, a snack, a meal, or a strong ale – day after day. From bicycles and biers, to mussels and frites in a paper cone, Café Hollander integrates some of our favorite elements of the Benelux region’s rich culture, and none more prominently than our love for Belgian bier.

PERFECT BIERS DESERVE THE PERFECT GLASS.

Bier in Belgium is not just a beverage – it is an experience. Many – if not most – breweries and specific types of bier have their own distinct glass. Glass shape can greatly affect aromatic presentation, head formation, even how well carbonation will be sustained. The ideal in these areas varies from bier to bier, thus so do the glasses. And in Belgium, you’d never serve bier in the wrong glass – it would lessen the experience. Café Hollander subscribes to that same theory, keeping well over 40 different glasses behind the bar to ensure that your Belgian bier experience is as it was meant to be enjoyed.

“Belgium (the size of Maryland) has three languages, ten million people, and 35,000 places in which beer is served. That is twice the density even of pubs in Britain.”
– From Michael Jackson’s The Great Beers of Belgium
