This is one of Amsterdam’s best bars, with a low-key Berlin-style wohnzimmer aesthetic. Food isn’t spectacular, but the decor and the beer selection are. The reviews here are completely ridiculous, though. You lot need to stop with the "while this isn’t exactly a beer bar..." and the "there were actual women there..." garbage. There is nothing ’odd’ about a bar full of young, hip people drinking somewhat obscure German beers. It’s embarrassing.

Although not especially a beer place (I think they sell more tea) it’s really great here. A quite amazing interior of old, damaged couches, worn furniture and faded wallpaper. The selection is mostly German beers but not atypical Pilseners. I had a Schwarz, a Keller and an IPA.

An oddity. For one, it is a bar that is of much interest for the beer geek, while not being a beer bar at all itself. Instead its the hip locals who come to relax, drink tea or good beer and enjoy their time. All this in a German themed setting with lots of armchairs and a friendly service. It was vary busy (and apparently usually is) but toatlly worth it. Just come on time. And have the German ticks come in bunches.

This place surprised me. I had never heard of it and only visited because Borresteijn, who is a local, took me and some others there during an Amsterdam pubcrawl a while ago. Small bar but a surprising beer list with lots of obscure German beers. I liked the atmosphere as well. Will visit again for sure.

Visited here with a small group of fellow ratebeerians. I was amazed when I walked into this place.... there were women in there... good looking women.. in a beer place.. no hairs on their faces, no deep voices, no hairly legs, just really good looking women.. and there were loads of them... wow.. Beer selection is pretty good also btw, some unusual German stuff which is cool to tick.. but the girls.. wow..... actual girls in a beer place.. amazing..

Located on the side of a busy roundabout, which is weird, but inside opens up a very nice scenery. Small bar and a bit bigger seating, or more lounging area. Old style furniture, seats and sofa’s. Supposed to be berlin style, it reminded me more of Victorian style. Mostly german inspired, all beers are german, most quite uncommon. Food isnt german strangely enough: they do serve pretzels and cake, but the sandwiches are italian. Friendly but unknowledgeable staff. And one of the good things is the amount of ladies in the house, which creates a friendly atmosphere.

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 now.

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.
