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.
