What more could you want? They have an amazing selection of glassware, with probably over a hundred types. Many, many dutch beers not sold elsewhere. An Amazing selection of belgian ale, with several hundred types. Then, even more and more beers from around the world. I've even heard that they have sold Kaggen in the past. Sheesh, I wish I would have been there. Westvleteren is available. There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of if not the best beer shop in the world. I've been here a couple times and have always received great service. This is quite a place.

Store after visiting in the state of light relaxation, but I will try to evaluate it objectively:
1) Location is just excellent, very easy to find;
2) The appearance of the store - nothing special;
3) The beer choice is very large, I think everyone can yourself to find something interesting;
4) Service bad, the seller was standing behind the counter and did not pay any attention. It is possible to be a closer. I advise you to drive bearded !!!

While I was expecting a great selection of beers from the Netherlands, they had so much more, from seasonal Cantillon, to stouts from The Bruery . Huge selection and friendly service. They even do trade,s from what the worker told me!

So I finally had a few minutes for myself in my last visit to Amsterdam. I knew this was the best store in town. Google Maps, one backpack, and here we go.

The place was a bit small but by having all the walls filled with beer up the ceiling actually became the best store I've ever been to. An awesome selection of dutch beers, belgian beers (european in general) and some US beers but nothing too fancy. This was the moment when I grabbed a beer from North Coast out of a shelve.

In my last steps in the unknown of this store, I saw something I couldn't believe in. Westvleteren beers, right on my front. Being a craft beer addict and knowing this beer from 'day one', this was a moment of truth. Actually, this had been my european whale.

Bought a Westy XII and became very happy. The end.

My favourite in NL. Nice selection, on top of the beers, and all the matching glasses.

Excellent selection of cantillon, and even some surprising American beers here.
