’Europes first US Beer bar’ apparently, and a very decent selection they have too. Delighted to see Great Divide Hercules on tap and a wide and well chosen range of bottles. Service seemed friendly. Navigating the spiral staircase to the toilets could be interesting in the midst of a heavy session. One minor quibble is the presence of a Bud mirror and light as part of the decor. Come on guys get rid of this vile CRAP ! I felt like asking if I could smash the mirror and pay for the privilege, but was too scared about 7 years bad luck....Well worth a look.

A bar started by Peter van den Arend of the Arendsnest so you know quality is assured. Especially for American beers. No Bud but good breweries like Left Hand, Uncommon etc. People know about beer and the selection on tap is great, let alone the bottles. In the middle of the city too.

My first intro to U.S micro,s on tap and was not dissapointed..Too start the 20> taps had me reeling but Raging Bitch won the first courtesy of a taster from Stef who was a wealth of help and knowledge on my tastings.. Got some Great Divide Hercules & some Oak Aged Yeti and got fuzzy from there..Had two return visits over the weekend and was made most welcome and wish id tried some more than Bitch & Hercules.. but hey it was fun !

Promised the owner id review this... my notes even say dont be lazy ... opps.. its been months ... Nice Place. Good service ... Decent range of Us beers but the same ones that seem to crop up across Europe ... little Pricey but nothing OTT for the selection... Well worth a visit, if you havent crossed paths with the Range of beers... and still worth a visit for a good beer in pleasant environment ... I’ll certainly be back. I was back. had a great time

OK - being an american, my rating will skew down a little, since I’ve had, or have access too, most every beer here. But (and it’s a big but) - for a selection of American beers in Amsterdam (or really, anywhere in that part of the world) - it’s really, really good. Most all of the ’big boys; of American craft are represented. You’d be hard-pressed to find this variety in most bars in the States, really. Atmosphere is a little ’new wave’ for my taste, but if you’re looking for American craft in Amsterdam - this is your place. Prices are high if you’re used to getting these beers locally, but not horrible given the location. We had Alesmith IPA, GD Hercules and some others tat I’m forgetting and all were quite fresh and not ridiculously priced given the distance from source.

I love this place. If you want to drink good beer in Amsterdam, go here. Personnel is very kind and friendly. Share the bottles and take some cheese.

Nice and modern bar, quite new, so visitor numbers run from packed to empty with a wide ranging crowd. Enthusiastic, helpfull, and generally nice personnel. (Including owner Peter Arend who can rant on about beer for hours!) If you like American beers, this is the place to go!

Very nice place, great atmosphere, very friendly service, huge selection of american beers. Only the music was not our cup of tea, but the atmosphere definitely made up for that. Visit if you are in the neighborhood!

Visited here Oct 09. Dropped into this place on a midweek early/mid afternoon, it was fairly quiet only one or two others. Barman was very friendly and helpfully suggested different beers. We went for a couple of the house beers, and as I recall I did have an American beer (forgot which one) Prices are a little steep especially for some of the bigger bottles but then when I discussed this it would appear that there really wasn’t a lot of diffecence between what you would pay here and what you might pay in one of the specialist beer shops, so what do I know and besides they are likely to be shared amongst a small group. I enjoyed this bar and think it will quite soon become a well established place to drop into on the Amsterdam pub/bar circuit. Visited here on a few more occasions since my first visit. The beer list really is top notch and whilst it is pricey if you stuck to the taps you can drink for a reasonable price. We (me & my dad) visited twice over w/e 9,10 March 2013 and had some great beers.

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.
