Nice ambient atmosphere with good service. About 10 taps, ranging from local to PNW and two BMC products. Clean bar and restaurant. Beer selection was mostly good. Pretty good place, I’d come back to. I had a tuna melt that was pretty good.

Judging by earlier reviews, this cafe may have gone downhill in the beer department. Selection was average when we were there and was not worth going out of the way for considering the other places in this town...Moose’s Tooth was one of my favorites and is just down the street from Amsterdam.

Ok spot. Has a cafe feel. A handful of taps, but nothing all that rare or special. Same plaza as Bodega. Worth a stop, but in terms of selection, service and ambiance, nothing too exciting. The top Alaskan breweries/beers were AWOL and the out-of-state list wasn’t knocking me out either. They had a lot of bottles, so I guess if you’re looking for that, you’ll do better.

Café Amsterdam has beeen around for 15 years and is by far the best beer bar in Anchorage. It sports a fairly quiet atmosphere, no loud music or sports on TV. Unlike many other bars in Anchorage it’s not packed full at all times, making it easier to stop by for a beer or two. Draught beer selection is great, with lots of Alaskan craft beer (Kenai River, Midnight Sun) but also other US treats, such as Deschutes Black Butte XXIII. Excellent bottle selection too, ranging from Belgian trappists to rare German beers. Food was good pub grub, service quick and efficient and the bartenders knowledgeable about beer and styles. Visited: 2014-07-29.

After meeting Ken back about 7 yrs ago in Belgium I finally made it to Cafe Amsterdam. I’m kicking myself for not getting there sooner. The beer was amazing, the food was just as great, and the chance to talk beer was an experience that is seldom found. I can’t wait to get back!

Nice big restaurant, great service with a good beer selection. Went here after the Alaskan Barleywine festival so I’m a little cloudy on the specifics.

Stopped by after the Barley wine festival and got a nice meal. The waitress was excited to talk beer with us and she had some good information on what she had on tap and in bottles. There was a private event the night before so not all taps were pouring, but they had a great selection of locally made products.

Stopped by here for brunch the first day in to town. The place is a nice size with a dining area and a large bar area. Sevice was great. Selection was mostly imports and like 15 local taps. All available in a sample size. I did not get back to taste the beers but looks like a pretty nice place to hang out.

This is a must stop for any beer geek. Sure you wonder what are they talking about. Well this little breakfast place has a serious Belgian and Craft beer issue. Like 22 of some of the best beers you ever see. Bottle list that will rival any down in the lower 48. A must stop and have some food and great service. Beers are to die for.
