What local beers to try?

Familiar with some Dutch beers, Heineken, Grolsch, Orangeboom, Amstel are what come to immediate mind. Would like to know which Dutch beers I should sample in Amsterdam that are unique or aren't available outside the country.

Do enjoy Belgian lambic and wheat beers, are there Dutch lambics/wheat beers too. If so what brands should I look for.

Thanks.

My favourite Dutch beer is a Paulus beer made by brewery De Leckere from Utrecht.

It's for sale at 'Arendsnest' and 'In de Wildeman' in Amsterdam

The Bierfabriek is fun indeed. We had our last TA meetup there and enjoyed the tasty unfiltered pilsner, and a delicious chicken as well. I have also been there with my kids, and they liked especially that they can throw peanut shells on the floor after eating the peanuts.

The choice in beer is rather slim though, and I don't really like the other beers which are rather sweet for my taste.

Yesterday I had some delicious IPA beer at Brouwerij 't IJ. They are really good value for money (2,80 each for a 25cl glass). It was very busy and people where lining up at the bar with rows of about 5 persons long. So I ordered two beers for myself + one for my gf at the the same time to keep the flow going :)

I've tried the Maximus IPA High Hops yesterday and really liked it. They also serve it at de Arendsnest.
