Very hard to find in a small narrow alley but when you find it you can have some great beers there.

This is a fantastic beer bar, boasting 18 taps and over 250 bottles of imported and craft beer. Located in an old Amsterdam distillery, the inside is small, wood paneled and has all the charm of an authentic English style pub. Beers ranged from Brewdog, to a plethora of Belgians, to a 17 Euro bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter! We discovered a cute little back bar hidden around the corner from the main area and settled in. Several beer books and board games looking to be as old as the bar lined the shelves in this room. I ended up trying the wonderfully malty and smoky Schlenkerla Doppelbock on tap, while my wife ordered the Netherlands' own trappist beer La Trappe Quadrupel. It didn't take much before all four of us weary travelers were nodding off with the comfort of clinking glasses, murmur of background chat and tasty brews. This gem of a pub is well worth the visit and I'd love to go back when I have more time and energy!

Kind of a dive, but I like it. They obviously have a nice relationship with a lot of American brewers. Flying Dog Brewery made a beer for them and it is sold in the States. I had the beer long before knowing this bar existed. The bar doesn’t have stools; rather, it is waist level. There are lots of round tables scattered around. It’s easy to forget what time it is. There is wifi (great for travelers!) Absolutely worth a visit.

Neat bar in the heart of Amsterdam. Lots of typical beer stuff on the walls, and a little "museum" like display of lots of rare and older or harder to get beers, was pretty neat to see. The bartender was very friendly and helpful, and gave me a few good selections.

There were tons of beers on the bottle list, I was a bit overwhelmed as I only had a little over an hour to enjoy before i had to head back to catch my train to the airport, so glad the bartender helped. He was quite knowledgeable too. They also had a handful of beers on tap, including a really interesting collab with Flying Dog brewery, so I got to try a beer 2000 miles from a brewery about 400 miles from my house.

I enjoyed it, best place in Amsterdam (that I visited at least). Next time I'm in town I'm def staying there for a longer time.

Like other reviewers, I had the pleasure of stopping by here after an amazing burger from Burger Bar just down the street. Wagyu beef and goat cheese <3.

Lovely bar with a nice laid-back atmosphere. Friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere, mixed crowd (tourists and locals, Americans and Asians and Europeans). Not too noisy, not too crowded.

Beer selection was very interesting. I had only heard of 1 beer on tap, which was very pleasant. The two I tried were marvelous and well-priced. One of which was a local Oedipus brew with lemongrass and chili pepper. Amazing. The other was a suggestion from the bartender and had less of a memory-friendly name, but it was also wonderful.

Good Scotch selection at a good price (5.50 euro) if you're into that kind of thing.

Food looked good, but as previously mentioned, my stomach was full of glorious burger so I passed.

Great place to stop at if you're in Amsterdam. No one well try and sell you shitty faux-absinthe, thank god.

What makes Amsterdam so...dam appealing? First day in the city and everybody that I've run into speaks English (even the homeless folks!). It probably helps that the city is such a tourist hotspot. With the museums closing, it's time to go drinking.

Tables on the street outside, though I found my spot just inside the bar. There are two rooms, with a bar splitting the two apart. Lots of beer memorabilia around, especially at the front window, where you will see beer glasses the size of fish bowls!

In de Wildeman has well earned its repuation as a beer destination is Amsterdam. 18 different beers on-tap of different nationalities (Flying Dog, Texels, Mahrs, Ayinger, Del Ducato, De Leckere) and an additional 250 bottles (De Ranke, Schelde, Boon, Vis Beer, Bink, Mardesous, Fullers, Anchors, Budels, Jopen). Not only are the beers kept in good shape, but they're served with appropriate glassware and not too cold. I had two drafts from here, and both put me in a good mood.

It's just not beers that's here, but scotch too. If you're fond of both beverages, In de Wildeman should be near the top of your bar crawl. Heck, just the beer warrants a visit.

Vibe: The bar is short walk down a alley off the busy pedestrianized Nieuwendijk, but once you step in you feel like you've quickly exited the tourist district. It is very cozy inside with lots of decoration of old beer-related items in a display case and on the walls. It seemed that the place was popular with the locals and several people brought their dog. I visited around 7 pm on a Monday and was surprised to find some empty tables

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperatures in a variety of glassware such as goblets and snifters.

Service: There were only two people manning the bar and also waiting on the tables so service wasn't very prompt, but this seems the norm in Europe. The bartenders did talk with some of the people ordering and paying at the bar.

Selection: The bar had about a dozen beers on tap, some of which seemed to be uncommon beers and limited releases. I was shocked to find a gose and a pumpkin beer on-tap.

They had light appetizers but I didn't try the food.

Visited back in June 2012:

Stopped in while on a recent visit to Amsterdam, among other places...and what can I say that hasn't already been said about the place. This place is an absolute must for any beer enthusiast. We walked into the place maybe around 6 or 7pm, don’t recall the day at this point, after stopping at the Burger Bar right down the street (which frankly a must stop as well) and the place was packed, both inside and out, but we were lucky enough to grab a table. The place is kind of small, but has a great atmosphere...a little light music and so many languages being spoken that I lost count. Very causal and relaxing. This is a place that you could easily hang out in all day.

As others have stated, there was a list of maybe 11 beers on tap and I didn't really recognize any of them, which was great, all different breweries and styles. I think that we tried maybe 4 or 5 on that visit. And the list of bottled beer was unbelievable...I think that my wife and I must have read over the thing for at least a half an hour, just in awe of the sheer volume. The service was decent, but the place was crowded, so I can't really fault the guy, but he was friendly and accommodating. Overall, it was a very unique experience.
