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.
