Nice place. A long bar and some seating at tables with a few tables upstairs and a small patio in front. It looks like a dive bar (A small Toronado?) but clean. Friendly and helpful staff. A big tap list and huge bottle list. Lots to choose from. Decent prices.

Same ownership as Arendsnest. More modern feel. Big beer list – 30 on tap and just short of 100 in bottle but it’s all US or US-styled (that basically means Scandinavian and BrewDog). However, the beers are pretty much the ones that are in circulation all round Europe, so no great rarities for anyone who has had a lot of US beers – just 2 new ones for me. However, I did feel the need for a hop fix from time to time during my week stay, so dropped in on a few occasions. Never seemed very busy. Not cheap. Staff are enthusiastic and friendly. Quite difficult to give a score because, whilst it’s undoubtedly a very good bar, it’s not really what I come to Amsterdam for.

Visited this place on the opening weekend 2009, the placer was not 100% ready for business, the paint was still wet. Nice selection of US beers on tap, not beer on every tap when visited,but they also had a good bottle selection. We sat on the benches outside and enjoyed the late glimpses of summer.

Nice Place in the center of Amsterdam. Rather nice tap-selection with focus on American beers. Barrel aged Boris for instance. Dark and quite pleasant Indoor area, not very crowded on a late Monday afternoon. Good service.

A nice beer bar with a surprisingly strong American beer selection. A skinny but deep bar that is a bit dark and a small outdoor seating area. Bartenders are knowledgeable about the beers and make nice recommendations if needed. As I mentioned above, the selection of American beers is quite outstanding, both bottles and taps, with a few dutch and Belgian (Westy’s) available as well. Prices are a bit steep but as to be expected as they are mainly imports. A nice selection of meats and cheeses if desired. I was pleasantly surprised here.

only been here twice. One just after it was open and once for a beer tasting where one of the Brewdog brewers was there. I love this bar! Pity it’s not in the Hague but it’s a lot closer then the US ;-) I’m a big fan of American beers and have travelled to the US several times. They have a very good selection of beers from around the world. Only the best beers get into this bar!

Visited on a Thursday night. Mostly english speaking crowd, not many locals. Very much in the downtown area of Amsterdam, not far from Centraal Station. Had several great european beers on tap, they have some very good american picks as well, but I decided to opt for the freshness of something I couldn’t find near home. Prices are not cheap by any means, but very honest considering the products offered. Cheese and meat available as beer snacks. Service was top notch, young but friendly and knowledgeable bartender. If I had found a place like this in France I would have cried. Definitely up there with the good Copenhagen bars as one of the prime beer destinations in Europe (for europeans, Americans should visit Arendsnest).

I could not add anything to the entry by skortila. We have to see how it evolves as a beer bar, but I certainly hope this is a step in the good direction for dutch fans of american styled beers. Skortila: Place visited together with Caesar at a quiet sunday afternoon. Cosey place, Peter himself as barman, so good talk about beer. I was lookin forward to go to this place and it was fantastic. Loads of American beers, also some rare americans on tap, hard to get anywhere else in Europe. The standard templebeer is a perfect sessionbeer for a start. Prices are high for the dutch, but more than reasonable for beergeeks. I will definately visit again.

Dark, dimly lit with gaudy black and red decor. Amazing selection of beer. Satisfactory prices and service. Horrible toilets up a spiral staircase. Not a very nice place but amazing choice of beer. Close to beer store round the corner.

Nice place around the corner from Bierkonig. Not too loud music, beer pictures (mostly american breweries) on the walls. While considering what to try bartender brought me a sample of Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian-style India Pale Ale which was very good, so for the beginning I decided to order it. Some 20 tap beers with reasonable prices, but also few big bottled Americans that are quite expensive (for Croatian standard, but also reasonable if we know where they came from). All in all highly recomended place.
