Great beer selection

Not just excellent beer selection but also very good quality snacks - the cheeses, meats and bread are absolutely fantastic, especially compared with the usual boring and bland cheese in other cafés. Nice atmosphere, wonderful for a cold afternoon.

No frills...just an old, locals beer bar. No food and it can get crowded, but really good prices. Close to city center.

This is one of the best beer bars in Amsterdam, particularly if you're a tourist and already in the center, and looking for a small place with an authentic feel. There are a few other slightly larger ones with the same or better atmosphere and better selections, but when you get this good you're really splitting hairs at that point.

Stumbled upon this place - it looked like a regular pub from outside but what a lovely surprise....they have an absolutely fantastic beer selection. The staff were absolutely lovely and with it being a Friday night it had a great buzzing atmosphere. We didnt sample the food but it looked pretty good from what we seen.

Popped in to this pub before dinner one night, great atmosphere, tons of choices of beer but so so small and cosy. I'd loved to have stayed and sampled some more, so will be back to try again!

Small pub, with a great beer selection. Looked like a real local spot without any tourists. Will definitely come back next time in Amsterdam.
