Like this place looks like an old livingroom, like the German beers they sell here to drink. German Big beers, Regional beers and even German Craft beers. Also a nice plus their main tap beer Budvar and that all opposite the Heineken Expierence. I come back here soon.

Cracking little bar, slightly off the beaten track. Nice variation from the norm with German and Czech beers in an eclectic layout. More obscure beers from German micros appearing mow.

Visited on a Friday evening, was lucky enough to grab a place because it was quite full (average sized place but is obviously quite popular). Ambiance is cool, very relaxed hipster-old furniture and soft warm lighting kind of place, looks like just a fun bar to chill in but they happen to have a nice focus on a rotating selection of bottled German beer, some of which isn’t available in local stores at all, especially some german micro stuff (had some single hop citra pale ale in a bottle there, and a top ranking dunkel). They also have budvar on tap, which is cool, with 2 other rotating german taps. The prices are amongst the lowest I’ve seen in a beerplace in Amsterdam, really good value. I didn’t have any food here but they do serve some snacks. I wouldn’t say this is a top beer destination in the city, but it is a really nice local’s cafe experience that happens to have some good beer as well, worth checking out for sure.

Small, cozy, but also a bit messy Berlin-style bar just off Leidseplein, more or less opposite to the Heineken museum. Seatings are sofa’s, couches, etc, and the stools at the bar. Like an old living room. Small patio as well. Small, but really nice selection of mostly German beers from small breweries, both artisanal and modern craft. Decent prices. Will be back.

We visited here on Monday 30th September 2013 and I must say that this is one of my new favourite bars in Amsterdam. It is quite close to a busy junction and on a main road Weteringschans and about a 5-10 min walk from Oosterling another great bar. I liked the vibe here with a selection of old furniture at the back of the bar lending a warm, cosy lived in living room feel to this place. The bar serving area is on the right as you enter and there are a couple of tables and chairs out front, which is wgere we sat soaking in the late September sunshine. The beer choice was small but excellent, seemingly very well chosen, it was also exclusively German offerings as I recall but quite unusual hard to find beers, we had a Gose and a German IPA both were excellent. We had a plate of cheeses, three different very generous portions at just €7-8 a plate it was ample for the two of us and they were great. The owner/bar lady was lovely and said they go to Germany frequently so the beer list will be changing and evolving a lot, there were also a number of Oktober Fest beer choices on whilst we were here. Really liked this place and will definately be back.

German beers. Not a lot but a good selection of quite rare beers for the region. Ambiance is super with fifties Berline-type living room vibe.

Hipster bar, with occasional quirky clientele. Also plenty of hockey chicks. Strangely enough it has a quite eclectic selection of German beers. Mostly self-imported. Also some Czech and other "East of the border"-stuff. Prices pretty fair. Location is close to the Leidseplein. Give it a go.

Charming pub with a Berlin touch. They specialize in German and Czech beers, which makes it a unique place in Amsterdam. You will find a bottled Schlenkerla here. On tap Budweiser (the real one) and seasonals. The serve German snacks and tasty cakes. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The ambiance is special, due to the typical "living room interior". It is frequented by locals, mainly artists and students. I love this place.
