I looked up a number of places before visiting Amsterdam because I wanted to find the best beer bars in town. This place wasn't on any list and we literally passed it on our way to somewhere else and stopped in. It has an unbelievable beer list but it is primarily american beers. Although it was quite impressive I go to american craft beer bars all the time. I

One great thing about it, however, was that there were american brands that you might not be able to get locally.

Also, it's not totally American. They carry a number of European brewers who brew beer in the American style, such as Brew Dog and Mikkeller.

Atmosphere was very dark, much like a tavern. I"m not sure if they have food, we didn't eat while there.

Overall, a definite must for a stop by but there are a couple of others that are also not to missed. My favorite was Cafe In de Wildeman

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.
