Great beers, cozy atmosphere

Some fantastic beers served. Can get very busy, so you may have to call a few times before you can get a seat. Small selection of nibbles - sausage, cheese board, etc. Heartily recommended.

This little hole in the wall is worth tracking down. They boast the biggest beer selection I have seen in Amsterdam, and the place has the character to match. The bartenders are obviously beer lovers who are happy to talk shop and make recommendations. The ambiance is one that can only be created over time. The wooden floors have grooves... More

We visited this pub by accident really as we were just lokking for somewhere to have a quick sit down and drink before we visited the Ice Bar nearby. Me and my mate were over the moon to find the range of beers. I had a Pilsner Urquel which is one of my favourite Czech beers, and he had a... More

Incredible place for beer lovers! Over 400 kinds of beer. Went here every day of our 5-day trip to Amsterdam. Had my first Westvleteren 12 here. A must go!

In a little narrow street between Spuistraat and Singel, Gollem is a gem. Even if you do not enjoy beer. But it does have over 400 types of Belgian beer, which I am sure must be illegal in the Neatherlands! It si small, it is packed, it is very quaint, seems made on carboard on the inside. Looks like it... More

My husband and I had a drink here all 3 days we were in Amsterdam. This is because the atmosphere was great and the chap behind the bar was super knowledgable. We sampled quite a few, all of which were super.

For being situated in the centre of Amsterdam this Biercafe has a very relaxed atmosphere. It has a real disadvantage and that is the number of beer-types is to much for one evening. You'd have to return every day for several weeks to taste them all.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
