Just off the three main tram lines that run from Centraal Station (1,2&5). Definitely a superior store, and if you're a lambic fan the lower level will make you certainly smile. However I was hoping that my last store visited (and the most regarded) on the trip would yield many saisons - I was sorely disappointed. One Fantome, a Silly and two others I've had before. Suprising to say the least. Amazing glass selection if that's what you're loking for. Lots of gift packs, British, German, CDN (Unibroue) and surprisingly quite a few US craft (Left Hand, Great Divide, Flying Dog & Anchor). Excellent Christmas section set up with all the holiday beer pooled together.

The service was basic but not bad. The best beer photo I've ever seen resides next to the door - if you go make sure to check it out, and try your best to hold back the tears.

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.
