I'd heard so much about this place from fellow BA's and other beerfly reviews, it seemed like a must when in amsterdam
Fairly easy to find, head off dam square onto the damrak, then a few streets along and down one you will find this wonderful beer bar
I visited it a couple of times, the first during the day. It was quite empty but had a great warm atmosphere. The barman was very friendly and also commented on how much he liked my first beer selection, aecht schlenkerla marzen rauchbier, which was fantastic. While i was there i also had a de ranke xx bitter, also fantastic.
The second visit was later that night around 7, very busy but not over crowded. The same pleasant service, this time i tried bourgogne de flandres and la trappe quad, both a little disappointing but still, great to try new beers
All in all, a fantastic beer bar, amazing selection, lots of good local dutch beers, all the trappists, some german, few english and a ton of other great belgians

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!
