On my visit to one of my friends here in amsterdam I had the chance to borrow their bike for going around the city while they're still at uni. on a tuesday- hopeless to visit 't IJ- I decided the next best thing would be 't Arendsnest.

I came accross the place twice on my bicycle but they were still not open- they're not much of an early lunch place, but I kept my cool and came back around 5pm. The sun was still shining intenseley- the spectacular advantage of an uncommon summer here- which enhanced the outer accomodation, literally on the sidewalk opposite the actual bar, au bord of one of amsterdam's beautiful canals. the scenery is fantastic, and the sunburn is avoided by the subtle cover of the flourished trees this time of year.

But I couldn't find a place outside- perhaps a more bike-skilled crowd gathered there before I maladroitly locked mine onto a post. So I sat inside. The place has a very old and traditional aspect. much like all of Amsterdam's buildings, the width merely fits the bar and a row of tables, but goes in further deep although shouldn't accomodate more than 30 people at once. The walls boast the place's several diplomas condecorating their dedication to dutch beer, and atop the tables the pack of coasters and the ashtray come from La Trappe.

In the background, the conversation of a group of 50 or 60 year old men with the bartender- the first ignoring the music, the second queueing it without much interest (it was a set of old late 80's early 90's music)

The selection at the menu is very impressive. they barely carry some 8 taps but certainly is not a problem, because the menu layout- by brewery, style, abv and price for the bottles is more than anyone can take. I'd come to make myself a "tripel tasting", and began with a Java Tripel by Brouwerij de Halve Maan. Ensuite, a de Leckere Tripel (B. de Leckere) proved this would be an exceptional experience, even if i was on my own throughout. I brought myself to join in the conversation with the bartender right after, proving my dutch was a bit clumsy but understandable nonetheless. the people also gave me a good accueil and I left the place with the promise of return in one year, despite my urge to return right away.

Great selection of Dutch beers, and none from elsewhere. Of all the places we stopped on our trip through the Netherlands and Belgium, this place had the best service. The bartenders seemed to know the beers well. It was and brighter than the other great beer bar we went to Amsterdam (Cafe Gollem). If I try hard to think of a drawback, it's that they only have Dutch beers, though there are plenty of of those, and many of them are great.
