Best beer-place in Amsterdam hands down. Great services. Knowledgeable and Friendly staff. Fifty (50!) taps of hoppy beverages. American centric but also local (american style) beers as well. Amazing selection. Little gem in the center of Amsterdam. Nice to sit-down and relax with a refreshing pint after strolling the streets of Amsterdam.

Knowledgeable bartender and great selection of International beers. This bar is Amsterdam’s “American” beer bar, with plenty of USA favorites on tap and in the cooler. But I went for the house beers and was not disappointed. Cool vibe, plenty of tables and maybe 6 seats at the bar. Did not have any food. Easy to find. Can take away “house beers”, otherwise consumption is on site. Will visit again!

Very cool craft beer bar in the heart of amsterday - 30+ craft beers on tap - good mix of european craft and american craft - several cool collaborations. Reasonable prices for good pours. Outdoor and indoor seating. finger foods, meats, cheeses - good compliment to the beers.
Service was fast, friendly and efficient. A lot of good stuff on draft and in bottles - overall - very cool stuff. . . I will definitely return next time I'm in amsterdam.

Uno dei migliori ad Amsterdam, forse il migliore per la selezione di birre da tutto il mondo. Cibo non provato

Stopped in on a recent visit to Amsterdam. Had heard great things about the tap and bottle list. For me, it was a bit disappointing. They had the basics, but nothing really special. The few bottles/cans that were a bit rare were out of this world expensive. I think a bottle of 120 minute was 35 Euro. The tap selection had one or two stouts and no barleywines. Seemed a bit odd to have nothing in these categories. Service wasn't great. Super slow - took almost 10 minutes to be served. The one guy behind the bar was taking orders and taking those drinks to tables. Overall, I wouldn't visit again.

This is a place geared towards American beers and being an American, I wasn't in love with it as I have access to most of the items. Found Boon lambic on cask, however which was fun to try!

HOTD Fred on tap? Yes, please! And the bartenders were super nice guys who were more than willing to talk beer, even though it was busy (weekend night). I gave a 3 for food, because if I remember correctly, they only had snack-type stuff on the menu. We had some Chimay cheese (worked incredibly well paired with a barleywine), and they also offered Orval cheese. But for a place of this size that offers so many different, special beers, a full kitchen would be almost impossible. Besides, let's not distract from what we all came here for...

I got to this place totally alone. I actually wanted to visit this a long time ago and then I had the chance once I visited Amsterdam.

I came in suspecting that inside there would be a world I'd fall in love for. Counter at the right, corridor at the left. 2 to 3 three people speaking dutch. I seat at the counter and look at the beers. Great selection here. But my eyes must've shined when I saw Stone and Arrogant Bastard on tap. For me this was a novelty. Had a Double Bastard from AB and an Americano from Stone, both 4 ozes. Ended up speaking half an hour with the barista and getting one friend in Amsterdam.

I totally recommend this place.

One of the best craft beer places in Amsterdam, if not the best. 35 beers on tap, among which one can usually find some nice rarities. A very nice selection of bottled beer - a bit pricey, but you can find stuff you don't normally find in other places. Helpful and knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere. Can be a bit too crowded sometimes.
