Dutch beer doesn't have to be mass produced fizz and this place is its flagship. The staff are very helpful with suggestions. They don't do much food except for little snacks.

Arendsnest is a very classic beer room that also serves wine, scotch, and snacks. They have around 15 beers on tap and many more by the bottle. The upstairs is noisy and fun and the downstairs in the back can be a bit quiet. You...More

I was fortunate enough to find this little bar in the city. It has an excellent selection of various Dutch hand-crafted beer. Probably one of the best in the city. Very friendly staff. A must stop.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
