I was recently in Amsterdam and ended up coming back here three nights in a row. The beers are all Dutch and most I had never heard of, but the bartenders were great in giving suggestions and I did not have a bad beer while there. The bar itself is very attractive, lots of dark wood with vintage posters and a long bar that can seat up to a dozen or so people. The clientele seemed to be a mix of locals and visitors and had a great, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend this bar to any beer lovers who find their way to Amsterdam.

The only improvement I can see is on the food side, which is good but really just bar snacks. Enjoyed a nice afternoon between flights through Schiphol.

Great selection of Dutch beers, and none from elsewhere. Of all the places we stopped on our trip through the Netherlands and Belgium, this place had the best service. The bartenders seemed to know the beers well. It was and brighter than the other great beer bar we went to Amsterdam (Cafe Gollem). If I try hard to think of a drawback, it's that they only have Dutch beers, though there are plenty of of those, and many of them are great.

Great selection of Dutch beers. The only place where you'll find a lot of these. Laid back vibe with a nice outdoor seating along a quiet canal.

Edit- unfortunately I have to dock them points for service after my last visit. A beer that I ordered upon recommendation from the bartender was clearly infected with strong diacetyl. When I said something about it, he insisted that it was supposed to taste that way. I think he was new and there may have been some recent staff turnover. Always seemed to be the same people there the last 3 or 4 times I visited. Oh well, I'll be back nonetheless.
