Um, you would think after 40+ pubs we visited on our two week stay in Amsterdam, that they would all blend together after a few pints, but not so much. Each place like this one is unique. We loved the atmosphere here, the selection and fun stuff to look at. The bartender was knowledgable about the beers, which are like... More

Amazing selection of Dutch beer and jenever. Friendly place and bartenders gave us great recommendations. You could spend hours here - which would not be a bad thing!

Told by a discerning friend that this was the best bar in Amsterdam so I sought it out. He was right. Armed with the address I walked up and down the wrong side of the canal in the rain before I twigged it that even number are on one side and odd numbers on the other. Nice stylish long bar... More

This is one of the nicest pubs in Amsterdam. Great beer, cozy atmosphere. The only problem with it is that it's very small and often packed. Stop by in the afternoon after 2pm or early evening to avoid the crowds. Ask for the bartender's advice and he will recommend something based on the beer you usually drink. Nice atmosphere, friendly... More

THE place to sample beers from the Netherlands. They are proud to serve only beers from their country--and there are some good ones. The atmosphere is warm welcoming and fun. My husband and I stopped by there each day while visiting Amsterdam. Simply outstanding!

This is a wonderful place and perfect for a pre-dinner beer or three. It has over 100 beers, all Dutch and 30 on draft. It has a wonderful,gleaming copper bar that stretches the length of the café almost. The cafe is long and narrow and you may have to wait ito squeeze into a table if required. The staff are... More

So with family living the the Netherlands for the past 5 years I've no been there visiting three times and was starting to think Amsterdam is getting a bit boring and I was convinced the Dutch drink nothing, but bland lager. What a joy to discover this spot with a huge selection of beer brewed ONLY in the Netherlands with... More

't Arendsnest was by far my favorite spot in Amsterdam. It is well worth stopping by here if you are in the city. They have a huge selection of beers both on tap and in a bottle. Ask your server or the bartender what sort of beer you like and they will hook you up with something delicious, guaranteed. My... More

This spot specializes in Dutch microbrew. Unless you're Dutch, you won't recognize anything on the menu. The good news is (1) The beer is high quality (2) The staff is very happy to recommend beer that will match your tastes (3) the staff is really friendly and (4) you're not going to see this particular collection of beers anywhere else...

The waitstaff here know beer!! They will describe each and every one and match your interests. Small, cozy quarters and not too crowded considering its a holiday weekend. Highly recommend for both the beer novice and expert! Would definitely come back.
