Visited as a group of friends. We are not beer experts but wanted to try something different. The staff was excellent in suggesting specific beers to our tastes. I also loved the setting - sitting right next to the Herengract canal on a Friday evening, watching the boats go by.

60 Dutch beers on tap, 120 dutch & international in bottles! If that's not enough add knowledgeable staff and central location. Inside it looks like a pub, focussed on beer. Good, although standard, cheese platter. Somewhat poorly signposted outside - next door to the Belgian restaurant.

Better than my previous experience with the early cleaning and closure so back to normal service now. Dutch beer at its best: a great advertisment for the craft beer scene here

Wonderful, warm bar with an unbelievable selection of beer. Took two nights for three of us to taste the 31 beers on tap. It was a great way to end the day after sightseeing Amsterdam. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. If you enjoy beer in a pleasant atmosphere this is THE place!

This was a great place to take a break in the middle of canal district sightseeing at the intersection of Herengracht and Herenstraat. When you've dodged your umpteenth kamakazi bicyclist, stop here and relax for a moment. The selection of beers, which come with advice from the bartender, is excellent. The place has personality, and good music too. It is... More

Really enjoyed our evening here. Tasted 5 different beers. Also enjoyed a cheese and sausage platter. You can drink inside or outside along the canal.

Best place for beer in Amsterdam. Knowable and friendly staff. Fantastic selection. Not a lot of space so get there early. Just wish they had more food.

I found this bar recommended in a tourist guide, my wife and I decided to have a pre dinner drinks there and loved it to bits. I am a big fan of Camra etc in UK and appreciate good real ales. I have often worked in Holland many years ago, and always thought Dutch beer was all the same (Euro... More

This is an awesome beer drinking experience. The staff are friendly and help with recommendations. They have 30 beers on tap and 100 or so more in bottle. They have a copper-top bar, which is great to sit in front of and watch the night unfold. It does get busy, there are seats outside. I have been twice and will... More
