“Superb beer bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

certainly, one of the top two beer bars in Amsterdam though unlike its rival, it only serves Dutch craft beer. Despite this, it does have a great variety of excellent beers, many of which rival the best Belgium beers.

“Very good bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Excellent bar with huge choice of beers (barman most helpful in getting a beer to match your preferences) As we were on a weekend break, we didn't get to sample any of the snacks on offer, but would have done if we'd had more time. Prices very reasonable too.

“I thought I'd died and gone to beer heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Found this absolute gem courtesy of tripadvisor city guides. Absolutely loved it! I'm a big fan of Belgian beer but never realise the Dutch had so many quality craft beers. It's not as good as te Belgian stuff but was a huge treat to try out some new and unusual beers. Given some are very strong I tried the sample trays. The bar staf were very helpful. Try the 11% Russian stout-gorgeous-but don't plan too much the next day!

“Excellent bar with an amazing selection of beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Visited here a few times during my recent stay. Wonderful place with very friendly staff too. They served snacks which looked nice but each time I visited we were on our way out to get something to eat so never had the snacks. Would definitely recommend a few beers as a pre-dinner aperitif !!
