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!

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!

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.
