Visited on the 28th October 2004. This place is a reasonably large (by Amsterdam standards) two room beer café. The room to you right as you enter is a non smoking room. This is regretably, very much a rarity in this city. In de Wildemann has an excellent beer menu as befits a famous beerbar, and lives up to most reviews I have read. Nice solid tables, and well decorated walls with authentic enamelled signs relating to breweriana. A must visit when in Amsterdam, and within staggering distance of Café Belgique.

Beware, this establishment does not open on Sundays!

Love this place. Tucked away along one of the many small streets not far from the train station and the Damrak, In De Wildeman is a real gem. They often have Cantillon on tap and the bottle list is pretty incredible too. The building seems very old but that only adds to the allure. The staff is always great, willing to make recommendations and shoot the shit when they're not packed. Sitting outside on a busy night is an experience in its own. Some prime people watching.

15 beers or so on tap; hundreds bottled on menu arranged by style/country. Nice & small setting serviced by *very* knowledgeable staff. I didn't see a food menu. WiFi available. Great place!!

this place has been around for a long time - I probably first went here over 20 years ago and have returned several times since. It can hold a pretty decent crowd. They have 18 taps and over 250 bottled selections with a great assortment of local, euro and imports. The crowd is mixed, tending towards young, with a blend of locals and tourists. Beautiful place to drink.

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!
