On a recent trip to Amsterdam I made sure to stop by De Bierkoning and see what all the fuss was about. I was quite happy with my visit. The staff was helpful and talkative, the store was nice and decent sized for European standards (though very small by American ones).

Good selection of great beers. No Westy, though I'm told they occasionally have it. Had a few Russian Rivers (not the the Plinys) but they were in the 30 euro range so I decided to wait until I was in CA again. Good prices on Cantillon (picked up some St. Lumnivous for 13 euro). Much cheaper than I saw in Brussels just a mile or so from the brewery (the brewery was out of SL last few times I went). Trappist beers wee a bit pricey, but that is coming from Belgium. Rochefort 10 for 5 euro or so is somewhat offputting when you can get it for under 2 at most grocery stores across the Belgian border. A good amount of good american beers (Left Hand and Clown Shoes), but kind of pricey, too. Very nice selection of other nationalities (German, UK, etc...).

All in all, a great place to visit in Amsterdam but know the prices before you go in. You might pay more than you need to if you're not careful.

The name is accurate: these guys are truly the beer kings of Amsterdam. They have a diverse selection from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, and a few other assorted places such as Denmark and Japan.

If anyone wants to help me convince these guys to start stocking some nice Canadian beers, though, then that would make it perfect.
