Certainly a unique place like an old worn living room with old mismatching furniture. It doesn’t lack character by any means. There’s also a couple of small tables outside but it’s not really the best venue for a sunny day, if one happens to occur. There’s no huge selection of beers, but the German stuff on offer is interesting and makes a refreshing change.
Bit of a walk from the center but a decent and certainly doable one. Inside is very much like an old living room full of old couches and furniture which I would usually love. The furniture looked very old with lots of it cracked & partially broken. I could barely sit on the first couch that I tried. Sad to say but the furniture looks like it should be thrown away and replaced by something comfortable. They have pleasant of teas here & the whole is a bit like a mix between a tea place and a bar. Beer focus is on German beers, luckily about 10 or so unusual beers, they were out of some beers. A few common NL beers, one or so cider, cocktails etc. Prices are medium high standard NL prices. Services was good except one of the servers not understanding my Dutch and switching to English. I have been more than a few times in the Netherlands & I have met plenty of Dutch people and they always understood me except the few choice people in Amsterdam. I don’t get it. Crowd seemed to be a mix of tourists and a few locals. I would have liked it a lot more if the furniture was comfortable to sit in because I do like the living room atmosphere. There are good things about this place, also things that I liked less.
Very cosy bar or Stube if you will. Quite good German beer selection. 3 not that interesting taps. Friendly staff. Worn out furniture but that’s part of the concept. Lots of College student like people here. I bet that’s why Borresteijn recommended this place :-)
Very interesting, Berlin-Hipster-Style bar close to Rijksmuseum. Beer selection consists of three less interesting taps and a few dozens of bottles with some of them changing I suppose. Mostly German stuff, and in that regard mainly from smaller but rather traditional breweries. Prices are reasonable, considering that most of the bottles are imported and as big as 0.5 l. The ambiance is quite unusual with lots of sofas and armchairs, resulting in a very alternative clientele. Very crowded during my visit on a Saturday evening by the way, at around 10 or 11 PM. Would absolutely go there again!

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.
