Great beer for the Mrs in terms of Pilsners, great for me for the wheat beers. Friendly old-school bar-tenders who know the product. Find a table, sit at the bar or plonk yourself down outside facing the canal and kick back and relax. My partner really loved both the beer and the atmosphere in this traditional Dutch-style bar and the... More

Get here early if you need a table to sit at, otherwise just make a choice from the beer menu on the blackboard and stand where you can. If you aren't sure what beer to have, just describe what you like to the bar staff and they will make a recommendation for you (and let you have a sample first... More

Crowded place with 30 Dutch draft beers and other beers of high quality. Small and large glass options. Good cheese menu. But beer is the main focus. If you want great local beers then do not miss.

The best bier pub in the Jordaan, with a selection of over 30 Dutch biers, many on tap. The decor is fantastic and really puts you in the mood for a cool one -- older, dark woods, with a wall-to-ceiling back-bar. It sits on a canal for nice days. The bar tenders are friendly and knowledgeable about their beers.

My husband and I both love craft beers. This place is full of craft beers all of them are from the Netherlands. They have a wide variety of beers from barley wine to stouts and pilsners. The staff was very enjoyable, hard working and knowledgable of beer. 30 taps and over 100 bottles this is the place to go if... More

Always try to come here when I visit Amsterdam, the best range of beers I have ever seen anywhere in the world! Can easily spend a small fortune trying them but worth it! !

A busy venue with two excellent bartenders who were non-stop and still maintained a pleasant demeanour - the draft craft beers were outstanding - a must visit for any beer lover

This is a must visit when in Amsterdam, especially if you like to try different beers. They have a taste for every type of beer drinker form blonds to heavy stouts. I tried several different ones and they were all very good with different tastes. If you are not a beer drinker its worth a visit just to see all... More

30 Dutch beers on tap. Another 100 different beers in bottles. Friendly relaxing atmosphere. Describe the type of beer you like, and the staff is happy to make recommendations. There are outside tables right along the canal. It was our favorite place to have a beer at the end of a day of sightseeing, and watch the boats go by.

We arrived at opening so it was pretty empty, huge amount of Dutch beers available, not just pilsners, but ale, porters. oh the agony of choice. Not sure where the unfriendly service can from in other reviews, maybe that happens at busy times. The barman was brilliant, knowledgable and Made some great suggestions. Only downfall was it's fairly pricey, but... More
