On a rainy day in mijn fiets in Amsterdam I refused to ignore stopping at this splendid beer store- perhaps the only one in the city because I couldn't find the other one listed at BA. I rushed ignoring the place and thankfully had a mental image from the photo here listed- as I rushed through the rain at the Dam (this is in the paleisstraat which is one of the streets that leads and passes by the royal palace).

Damp et al, I entered the beer store and the only bad impression was- much as the rest of europe- the lack of air conditioning. but that went on right away, provided the beer selection faces you right away: an upper level with hundreds and hundreds of bottles carefully organised by nationalities (dutch, belgian, german, english and "rest of the world"). below, a cava-like bit for the lambics among which the unmissable stock of Cantillon's best. to the right, beer paraphernalia for us proud of drinking it and willing to boast it; and to the left, the register, behind which levels and levels of beer glasses (i counted up to 150 different).

Although I somewhat breezed through the store I had come to buy all their stock in 'de Leckere Tripel' because I have been hypnotised by this beer. unfortunately I'll only bring back four, because they were out until monday (after a thorough check by the friendly staff at the storage room)- too late for my colombian arse. comes to prove I should've gone there earlier to buy them out, because, in all fairness, the place had good prices for the quality range offered.

A small little place, easy to find. The owners packed a lot into a little place. I noted American beers that I can't get here in America. They have a huge selection of glassware. I didn't spend much time looking at the glassware because I was there to buy beer to bring back to America. The prices weren't bad. The staff, like just about everyone in Amsterdam, speaks English. Note that if you need a bag, you will pay for a bag.

Tight and cramped, but for a good reason.
Place is jammed with all kinds of goodies.
Oddest thing was the first bottle I saw when I walked in was Kuhnhenn Dark Heathen. Wow! How did that get here? They have other US craft brewers and plenty of good ones.
Obviously they have a great selection of De Molen and Mikkeller. They also have a tiny lower level full of lambics (Cantillon, etc).

Great shop! Super friendly and helpful staff.

Amazing selection of glassware too.

Just wish the place was bigger.
