I visited this Amsterdam bar on Sunday night (October 23rd 2011) after having a meal in a nearby restaurant. It had been on my list of places to hit on my Amsterdam weekend and was dismayed to find out that it was closing at 10pm and we would only have time for one beer! So I went for a brew from Great Divide; the fantastic oak aged Imperial stout on tap.

They have about 30 taps with many brews from Great Divide, Flying Dog, Left Hand, Mikkeller etc., so not exclusively "American". They also have in the region of 100 bottles on their menu. Prices were acceptable (most of the beers are American imports after all) but the ambience is not that great. Even though it was less than a year old, it seemed a little drab. I also felt that the barman could have made a better effort at clearing away dead glasses from the tables; it was not that the place was busy, in fact it was very quiet.

HOTD Fred on tap? Yes, please! And the bartenders were super nice guys who were more than willing to talk beer, even though it was busy (weekend night). I gave a 3 for food, because if I remember correctly, they only had snack-type stuff on the menu. We had some Chimay cheese (worked incredibly well paired with a barleywine), and they also offered Orval cheese. But for a place of this size that offers so many different, special beers, a full kitchen would be almost impossible. Besides, let's not distract from what we all came here for...

Great space and place. So many bottles and drafts on hand.

I got to this place totally alone. I actually wanted to visit this a long time ago and then I had the chance once I visited Amsterdam.

I came in suspecting that inside there would be a world I'd fall in love for. Counter at the right, corridor at the left. 2 to 3 three people speaking dutch. I seat at the counter and look at the beers. Great selection here. But my eyes must've shined when I saw Stone and Arrogant Bastard on tap. For me this was a novelty. Had a Double Bastard from AB and an Americano from Stone, both 4 ozes. Ended up speaking half an hour with the barista and getting one friend in Amsterdam.

I totally recommend this place.

One of the best craft beer places in Amsterdam, if not the best. 35 beers on tap, among which one can usually find some nice rarities. A very nice selection of bottled beer - a bit pricey, but you can find stuff you don't normally find in other places. Helpful and knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere. Can be a bit too crowded sometimes.
