How early is too early to drink in Amsterdam? Having arrived by train earlier in the morning, I could hardly contain my excitement of going from the helles/dunkel/weizen of Munich to the pale ale/dubbel/wit of Amsterdam. I hadn't had lunch yet, but I didn't care, I was ready to explore a new beer culture. That's where Cafe 't Molentje comes in.

It's a small cafe with outdoor seating along the street and canal. The bar is compact with seating for 9, and a handful of tables dotted on the floor. Old timey stuff on the walls and displayed throughout. A short history lesson was nice, but I already had my history lesson at the Amsterdam Museum. Let's move on to the 4 beers on-tap pouring Wieckse, La Chouffe, De Koninck, and....Amstel. 10 different bottles beers, featuring Belgian ales Duvel, Westmalle, Hoegaarden Grand Cru, and Brugse Zot. Each beer comes with its own glassware, which I rarely see in American bars. Small snacks are available for purchase too.

Not a bar to seek out in the city. It is a pleasant cafe for a drink in a pinch however.
