My wife and I hit In de Wildeman our second and last night in Amsterdam. Ironically, it was across the street from our hotel and we made it our nightcap stop. The selection of beer was extensive in this Heineken/Amstel/Oranjeboom town (and I'm not slamming any of those either. They also had a no-smoking room which was a welcome sight, which I now understand Amsterdam bars are now all smoke-free (at least that's what I heard).


They had some sort of Belgian "Winter Warmer" that I swear could have come from Harpoon!

This should be in the top 3 of your "to do" list in Amsterdam, well after getting stoned and the threesome anyways (don't do it before!!!). I always thought that the Bier Proeflakaal In de Wildeman, to give it its correct name, just meant Wild Man. However, I should have realized from the picture of the barely attired man with the 4 ft Club - that it actually translates as "Savage". Had the best range of beers in Amsterdam at one time, but newer establishments pop up all the time to challenge "The Grandfather", so this may have changed. Yet for me, it somehow still remains the best of the establishments in my humble opinion.
Around 18 Beers on draft, and a Beer List of around 200, of which, around 20% are from the homeland. The Worldly Draft beers vary from the ubiquotous Irish Guinness, domestic Oranjeboom, Teutonic Bitburger, Belgium De Koninck (excellent), French Belzebuth (holy shit! this is 15%), as well as a couple of UK offerings not usually found like Youngs RamRod and the Strongbow Cider. Oh, did I mention the Liberty Ale - how could I forget that?? ;-)
A Dutch Institution, that reminded of an original old Victorian Chemist Shop I once visited in London; dark interior, no music, lots of wood, creaky floors, wobbly tables, candles, wooden barrels a fantastic looking bar, hidden alcoves (find them) and if you listen carefully - just conversation, in at least 5 languages on my last visit. Food is Snacks Only - Who Cares?!. Do not be offended by the staff, they do know their beer - but rarely seem to want to chat or smile for some strange unknown reason. I know if I worked here - I would have a grin as big as the Golden Gate Bridge!!
