The Beers are good and fairily priced. We asked for all ten beers on tap and the waitress was very nice and explained all of them to us, one by one. The food was a very good match. Try the 'smoked' version of Andre (the name in dutch is something like 'cremated Andre'), it's a very unique smoky beer that... More

Went here twice on our recent trip to Amsterdam. The beer is great, named after famous dutch singers. The price was reasonable even did the tour for 10 euros where you get to taste 4 different kind of beers. Went for dinner and was a little dissapointed. We both had fish and chips, it was okay the batter and remoulade... More

De Prael is a great micro brewery. The selection is great and the enviroment is relaxing. We didnt have any food but the beer sampler was outstanding. The menu was in emglish and they gave great backgrounds of all of the different beers on tap. Would recommend this place to anyone who is in Ansterdam!

Wonderful surprise in the edge of the red light district. The brew pub serves excellent beers and hearty pub grub and snacks.

Last time we tried to taste as many of the beers as possible, plus bought some bottles to take home with us from the shop round the corner. This time we went on the brouwerij tour & ended up in the bar, where we... More

This was a real surprise and a great find (to be honest a Dutch colleague recommended it) and we could hardly believe that something as good as this exisiting alongside the tourist traps which abound in this part of Amsterdam (just on the edge of the Red Light district). As a place to go and drink the locally brewed beer... More
