Relaxing and nice place for having a beer.Friendly staff helping you to pick a choice of 52(!!!) Beers from the draft.But also many other beers in bottle. It is not cheap. You pay around 5 till 7 euro for a beer. 30cl. But at least you know you taste a good beer.

An increased beer range though the siting of the beer list behind the middle of the bar is not in as good a place as it used to be. They are also offering much more in the way of cheeses than before. Only dealing in Dutch craft beer is a unique selling point too !

Offering 52 draft beers and many more bottled ones, this is the place to taste Dutch beers when visiting Amsterdam. It is not a very large bar, but it does feel more spacious than other bars of the same size. Arendsnest also offers a selection of cheeses and cold cuts to eat with the beers. It is therefore a nice... More

Surprised by the large selection of beers, many from rural areas of The Netherlands that are hard to find. The waiters know a lot about beer and are able to suggest beer - even if you don't like beer. It's also possible to try a beer before you order. Their terrace next to the canal is nice but small. It's... More

I should have started here, instead of finishing a week in Amsterdam at Arendsnest. Walked in the door like a typical tourist, taking pictures, but was soon talking Netherlands brewing with the barkeep, who introduced me to some incredible local flair. Simply put, if you're into beer, go here, first. Don't limit yourself to the huge tap selection, there are... More

I read a lot about ‘t Arendsnest and it was at the top of my list of places to visit in Amsterdam. Boy, was I not disappointed! I love doing beer flights, and I ordered a 5-glass flight – bartender’s choice. The first was great and they just kept getting better. Service was friendly and bar snacks were yummy. Had... More

This place is a real gem for beer lovers. It has a very impressive selection of beers on tap for reasonable prices and even some great cheese and meat tasting boards. Went back a second time to try even more beers the following day. Staff are very helpful if you don't know exactly which beer to choose and there is... More
