    Wildeman, Arendsnest, Gollem (they have all the Westvleteren beers), Beer Temple, Brouweri Het Ij, Pilsener Club, Ooievaar, Olofs Poort, Cafe Belgique, Engelbewaarder, for starters.

    Bier koning is the only really specialist beer shop.
    ummagumma and mattsander like this.

    Brouwerij ‘tIj make some great beers and the tap room is meant to be good. I missed out on visiting when I was in Amsterdam because of limited time, but did manage a couple of their beers in a bar in the Jordaan district.
