We had an hour or so to kill before dinner and came across this pub. It serves 40 dutch beers on tap and many more in the bottle. Initially, the sheer choice can be off putting but the helpfulness of the staff in recommending what you'll enjoy soon overcomes this. It's not the most comfortable pub I've ever been to... More

Lots of biers to choose from!!! The place is small, prob only seats 50 or so, so be prepared to stand but it's worth it to try a new bier. They also have fritz-kola which is delicious!

We visited on a very busy Saturday evening. Most of the revellers were locals (always a bonus in Amsterdam!). There is a beguiling amount of Dutch beers on taps, and even more in bottles. We stayed for four drinks and each was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the beers by Emellisse. All true beer lovers with enjoy this place.

Returning to Amsterdam after more than two years this was the only stop on our list and it certainly didn't disappoint. Wonderful as always. Will be back next time!

.. still loads of beers on tap to go for. All types are catered for and the friendly, knowledgeable staff are happy to help. They have a third outlet now on Overtoom - see their website - so why not try that too.

Not sure why it is down as a 'beer tasting room'. It is a bar, pure and simple. They have up to 30 Dutch beers on draught and staff will guide you to one that suits, giving you small tasters if you can't decide. Great atmosphere but it is a long and narrow bar and fills up quite easily. As... More

The barstaff will happily steer you to a Dutch brew that's right for your tastes. From stouts & porters to IPAs, saisons or strong beers/ ales, their chalkboard of draughts is wide ranging.

Fantastic selection of tap beers; 30 Dutch on Tap and close to 300 bottle selection. Great atmosphere and wonderful staff. Belgium has done a better job of branding themselves but Dutch beers is just as good and often better. Eaglenest provides the perfect platform to learn new beers in the perfect atmosphere.
