“Lovely friendly bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

This is well worth a visit and not difficult to find. Lovely copper bar and great range of beers. Two really friendly bar girls when we visited - had quite a conversation with them! We stayed until 1 a.m but they never gave the impression they wanted us to leave. Would definitely return.

This is a small bar with a great selection of local beers. Reasonable prices and a really good atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

“Exceptional Selection of Dutch Ale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Wow. I cannot get enough of this place. Just sitting at the bar looking at the pristine polished beer pumps made my throat dry.

Which is just as well as this place has to be one of the best ale houses in Amsterdam. My top pub to visit in 2013.

On this visit I was in Amsterdam to see a band so had to start at lunchtime. 2pm start. All of the 6 beers that I tried on this visit were stunning. In fact, they got better as I worked down the line. Needed a lie down before the concert to recoup.

If you like a nice well kept beer and lot's of choice then make sure you find this place.

“Beautiful Beer Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Thank you for all the different types of beer and wonderful cheese. If you want to have a night of beer experience this is one of the places you should go! You should try the aged Gouda cheese with beers!

“Great Beer Bar, potentially the best anywhere?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Um ya, been to Portland and other beer mecca's and Amsterdam, particularly Arendsnest is the best. Amazing selection of tap beer, all of the De Molen brews in bottles, awesome service and tasting, tiny but awesome little tables by the canal. I basically love this place, the way they clean the glasses and serve you makes you feel like your back in the olden days... (before my time), but with way better beer. I would recommend the "house brews", tried an IPA that the guys who work there brewed and it is ridiculously delicious. Recommend for anyone of any age, went back again and again over the course of a week. BOOM! Didn't try any food, do they have food?
