When the bartender was done ignoring us I asked for Vodka cranberry, he made a pained face and said nobody would have cranberry juice. This is the only place that didn’t have it in fact. Dumpy little place not worth the time it would take...More

They change their beers often, but if they have the Cloudwater IPA available please do yourself a favor and try it. Absolutely delicious and strong. Very helpful and friendly staff; among the best beer spots in Amsterdam.

A hidden gem just off the main street. 10 mins walk from Centraal station. Excellent selection of on tap beers and a menu of 400+ bottled beers. Fantastic service and knowledgeable about products and tastes.

Wonderful, talkative, knowledgable staff, good beer selection, La Trappe Blond and a good Weizen on tap, plus a whole range of others. Had a La Trappe, a blond IPA and meatballs for snacking. Great beer, great meatballs. Recommended.

A very nice selection of beers, mainly from the Benelux countries, but also the hyped bottles and draughts from around the world. Very nice, helpful and knowledgeable waiter. All to see the"secret cellar menu" ;)

Located in the tourist area. It has great beers from a variety of spots. I would still here again on my next stop for sure. This is the menu from June 28.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I replied to your other post. Turn Right coming from your hotel following Niewendijk on Kolk. Located on the left hand side on Kolk.

Follow Niewendijk from your hotel and 3-4 streets off to the right on KOLKSTREET. It is a rather small place on the left side of Kolk if you come from Niewendijk.
