Located on Paleisstraat, this place is a doddle to find
Visited here 3 or 4 times on my visit, mainly to get stuff to bring home
When you walk in your greeted by the shop assistant and immediately notice the amazing selection of glassware behind, there are a couple of fridges in this area with some nice chilled stuff. Then, up a few steps is beer city, every belgian you can think of and so many dutch beers its unbelievable. Great selection of german beers too, all the best are here plus a few off beat ones. They also have a fair range of english and US beers too, but thats not where this place shines.
Besides the hundreds of small bottles and 750mls this place has lots of 3 litres and magnums, aswell as what appeared to be a 9 litre bottle of st feuillien.
Besides the amazing range of normal belgians is the 'cellar' area, stocking an amazing range of lambics, every cantillon beer (jncluding saint lamvinus which i bought), lindemans, girardin etc, all are present
Prices are fantastic too, saint lamvinus was the most expensive that i bought but of course it always is, was still less than 9 euro though. Small bottles of girardin 1882 gueuze were 1.20, lol, bargain
If you come to amsterdam you have to visit this place, especially if you are planning on bringing alot back, the range is amazing

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.
