Awesome place. Cozy, dark and quiet, non-smoking environment. There were a few people already in there enjoying wine or some other such nonsense. Great selection of American beers on tap, yes on tap, with a larger selection of bottles. The prices were very reasonable and on par with most bars in the States. The server that evening said he wasnít usually there and didnít know too much about some of the beers I asked about. But he offered to call the owner to ask, and was ready with a sample to quell some of the questions I may have had in addition. A bigger group of folks came in later, but something about the place makes everyone not be as boisterous as you would imagine they would be.

Just off the main square - another great themed pub - this time itís (nearly) all US beers. This is reflected in the prices which are generally higher than the sibling Arendsnest, import duty, transport etc etc. On our one night in here - Thomas was behind the bar - so service was excellent. If you have had not had many US beers then this is fantastic place to get started. If you have had loads I bet you can still find a tick or two here (I found 4). A great way to while away an evening but bring plenty of Euros!

Iím living in Amsterdam and frequently visit In De Wildeman. Somehow Arendsnest never seems quite on my route, so I have never visited that very much (even though they have a great selection). But this is something! I was very excited when Peter announced the first American beerbar in Europe, and Iíve not been let down. I have visited Beer Temple more times in the past 1,5 or so years than Iíve visited Arendsnest in the 11 years of its existence. 30 beers on tap, with a lot Bier&Co regular imports (most of them excellent btw) but also a few surprises every time I get here. Iíve had a dozen or so Southern Tierís, Mikkellers, Haands, Amagers on tap. Also great bottle selection, although I usually stick to draught. It surprises me there are always many Americans here, but itís probably because of what they tell me: you can get stuff here thatís very hard to find in the US. Highly recommended.

Great selection of American, but also (northern) European micro brews. 30 taps and dozens more in bottle. Crew very knowledgable and attentive. Drawback is wafting smell from the microwave, but for Hop-Heads a must visit. Brandt&Levie artisanal sausage is being offered now.

Great selection of American beers and located conveniently in Amsterdam near the other specialist beer bars. A must visit for something a bit different..

Visited a couple of times in November 2010. Very nice modern place in a good central location in Amsterdam. Very good selection of mostly American beers. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Excellent beer bar run by a beer geek for other beer geeks. Centrally located fairly close to both In De Wildeman and Arendsnest. Run by beer guru Peter van der Arend, who also runs Arendsnest. Modern bar, not very big with a small seating area outside on the street. Around 30 taps with beers mainly from the Netherlands, US, Belgium and anything else of excellent quality. Extensive list of bottled beers as well. Very friendly and knowledgebale staff. When abroad, I usually try to find a place with a large selection of local beers and in that case Arendsnest is probably a better choice, but if I was Dutch and wanted to try something foreign and very good, this should be the place to go to. And I will drop by as well, on the way to and from Arendsnest. A must visit in Amsterdam.

I love this bar. 30 beers on tap. Amazing range of US imports Iíve not even seen in other bars and beer shops so massive shout out to their beer buyers, what a team. The bar itself is very modern, the Americana is preached and flaunted to the fullest extent, beer prices are very reasonable considering that they were the same to beer shops which Iíve seen in the Netherlands. Music is amazing. First class sound track and a very attentive barman. Requested to hear some Howliní Wolf and he played it. The electronic jukebox behind the bar is AWESOME. Go and judge for yourselves. This is a 5 star bar and something which should be used as a blueprint.
