ok this is my 2nd place I hit when i get off the train from the airport. Its just beer lovers heaven if you like dutch and Belgian beer. otherwise stay away, and leave it to us that love Belgian beer. Yes they have aged westy upstairs usually, its not cheap but hey its worth it. This place has got the best selection and service in Amsterdam period. If you visit Amsterdam and your a beer lover this is a MUST visit otherwise, why would you reading this? he-he did I mention I love this place. Been here like 100 times now and that NOT a joke. Don't go in stoned, its best to have lots of time and cash and a wheeled vehicle of some kind. Sure the AGED westvleteren was 12 euro and higher but ITS worth every penny.

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.

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.

Nice people with a really nice bottle shop. They like to trade. Absolutely the best bottle shop in the city and surrounding area. Good selection of local, Belgian, and American beer. We brought them several barrel aged beers from the Midwest, and we walked away with some really cool stuff. You absolutely MUST visit here if you are a BA user and in Amsterdam.

The wife and I showed up here pretty late on Halloween night in Amsterdam.
Hands down the best bottle shop I have ever been in, not because of their selection, but because of the service. They have a great selection of Dutch beers (obviously) and that was what I was there for. Why would I want anything other than Dutch beers while in The Netherlands?
What sold me on the place was that I walked in and the woman who works there (can't remember her name) asked what style of beers I liked. My answer was followed immediately by her literally running around the store grabbing every single good Dutch beer from the styles I had mentioned. She even took the time to stop and describe each one to my wife and I before she placed it on the section of shelf she had just cleared off specifically as a place to put all the beers for me to choose from. I have never even experienced anything close to this in a bottle shop before. The enthusiasm and commitment to service makes this place my favorite bottle shop of all time. A must visit for anyone in Amsterdam.
