Found this place on a day trip to Amsterdam. The beer selection was incredible when I went. I don't remember exactly what I ordered, but I do remember it was an American craft beer that I hadn't had or seen before. I also remember they had Westvleteren bottles available but I didn't get any.

The bartender when I went was very passionate and knowledgable about beer. After being in Germany a few months it was refreshing to be able to talk beer with someone that had the same enthusiasm as I did but with a new perspective. This place definitely respects American craft beer and is worth a visit.

BeerTemple is an American Craft beer bar with the same owners as Proeflokaal Arendsnest. It has a really great vibe. These people know American Craft beer. They had offerings from Green Flash, Three Floyds, Hoppin' Frog, and many more. We brought a few beers from the Midwest to share and add to their collection. If you're visiting Amsterdam, you MUST go here.

stumbled upon this place walking around amsterdam at night...pretty standard bar inside, pretty dark etc but the beer list is amazing...both draught and bottle. 3 floyds dark lord went for 99,50 euro! very informative and chill bartender who was happy to tell the story behind how they get such rare selections. had the doris the destroyer on tap, verrrry tasy. recommend this to folks travelling to amsterdam.

Oh BeerTemple - an american beer bar brought to you by the brains behind 't Arendsnest

Curiosity drew me here - i'm always interested to see how far American beer travels and what Europeans are enjoying. I knew this place was legit, but I wasn't quite prepared for what I was about to experience...

Scanning through the taplist board was interesting - lots of interesting things, standard offerings you see in Europe a lot (flying dog...) and some really off-the-f*cking wall stuff. Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock?!?!? What? How is that even possible? Is this ever even on tap in the US? Sure, I'll take one. Wait, no, I'll take 5. Actually, just give me the f*cking keg.

They also had the Kuhnhenn DRIPA which is no slouch, and a nice wild stout from Jester King. The bottle list aint cheap, but if you want a Dark Lord, it's all yours.

Fascinating stuff. For an american beer bar in Amsterdam, I'd say the selection was perfect.

The eisbock was so good, we came back the next day and killed the keg.

Abraxxas across the street - just sayin...

This is a great place for locals to try US craft beer. Good cross section of styles and brewers. I was able to sample brews that aren't available to me back home.

I usually like to drink local product when I'm traveling but it was good to visit nevertheless.

I hit Beer Temple on my last of two days in Amsterdam and enjoyed the visit. It was nice to find a place that had that BA vibe of extreme/rarer beers along with numerous Belgian and Dutch beers along with a good assortment of American beers on the menu, too. Nice also to be able to order drafts in small 15ml/5oz tasters as well as larger sizes.

It was a moderately busy Friday afternoon in rainy Amsterdam when I visited. The tap list is quite impressive printed out on the wall in chalk, and everything that I ordered was in stock and as far as I could tell, everything else was in stock, too, that the other patrons ordered. I had a Spanish DIPA, a Left Hand stout, the 3F/Mikeller wheatwine Hvedegoop and Duvel Triple Hop. Prices were a little bit higher than other spots for the non-rare stuff and definitely crept up for rarities (I passed on 99euro Dark Lord), but it's great to see the availability of so many brews.

Atmosphere was quite pleasant. Low background music with a mix of Johnny Cash and alt rock. The bartender was very attentive to quickly getting what you want as you step to the bar to order (signs indicated to please order at the bar, so that's what I did, and it worked just fine). Seemed the clientele was a mix of American beer enthusiasts as well as some Dutch and European folks. A chill vibe that worked well to drink your beer in a rainy afternoon amidst the chaos and debauchery of the rest of Amsterdam.
