Well worth visiting this bar, great selection of beers both bottled and draft. Some are very strong so be warned! Not far from the centre and easy to find.

Proeflokaalen is definitely what you are looking for if you want to try other brews than the common ones. When in Amsterdam last week I visited many different pubs or "proeflokaalen". This are one of the better ones based on that they have a variety of brews - local AND international and not only Belgium/Dutch style. Wildeman is rather tiny,... More

We visited here in June '15 because of the great reviews here. My bed and I are really into beer and were very satisfied with the selection as well as the help from the bartender. A nice place to hand out for a couple of brews!

It took us a bit of meandering to finally find this fun place, but our efforts were worth the time spent. We visited early one evening and enjoyed hanging alongside a group of local patrons. The Dutch were very friendly and welcoming. A large variety of beers were available. The sausages were a treat to sample and we enjoyed some... More

Cafe in de wildeman is a small Dutch beer cafe similar in the mould of arendsnest...a beer connoisseurs bar its a far cry from the local pars peddling Heineken Jupiler and Bavaria. On a Friday afternoon it was far from busy but I got the impression it could get packed later in the evening. For this who like to sample... More

It's a nice place to have a variety of beers without having to pay a lot. Average beer was about 5 euro compared to prices in the city center that ranged from 9-12 euros.

This place was firmly on the itinerary for my Amsterdam trip since I had read so much about it. I visited this pub on 15th May 2015 and I was thrilled to have come here. The sheer variety of beers on offer is mind boggling! They stock and offer beers from all the important beer brewing countries of the world... More

Excellent beer selection, but staff seems rather disinterested/slow at times — makes it kind of hard to order anything.
