Loved this place! I spent waaay too much time in this bar. Small little place with plenty of dive-bar character. It can get pretty smoky in there, but so does nearly every bar in the city. Pretty solid beer list, relatively inexpesive. Lots of great stuff to drink, although not a ton of rarities. Right across from the Cracked Kettle. Friendly enough staff, lots of friendly locals that I ended up befriending during my time there. Good stuff.

Straight in front of the Cracked Kettle store, so you’d have to be a fool not to step in. A large belgian bottle selection of perhaps 150 candidates and a limited selection from other countries. What was the most interesting to me was the 10 or so draughts including the likes of la Chouffe, Christoffel Blonde, kwak... Globally, I can entirely see how this place is attractive to the local crowd, it’s small, friendly and not too expensive for Amsterdam, but there are 2 other bars within walking distance which are of world-class level or almost. A bit thrashier and younger crowd here though.

great place, atmosphere was just what i was looking for for a amsterdam beer bar... brother took me there and it was great, we had a couple of great Belgians including Westy, and the proper pour of the Orval, w/ side shot glass and all, perfect..... highlly recommended.

This was stop number 2 on the night my Dutch Cousins took me out on the town! I have very fond memories of this place but the name alluded me until now. The selection is quite damn fine. A chalk board greets you when you walk in is almost to much! Westy was on the board but they were out of stock, but i didn’t care because they had 100’s of other beautiful selections! It is not "small" it is cozy!! Very friendly people, even if dutch isn’t your first language, and the staff is eager to help with selections or just a chat! I recommend this place!! Dankuwel!

I’ve been here many times. The place is great. Yes, it’s small and gets smokey and crowded with tourists sometimes, but what are they supposed to do, stop being great so people don’t come there as much? The service is very friendly, and the clientele is friendly too. I had a long conversation with a beertender who told me all about living in this greatest of all cities. Do not miss Gollem if you are in Amsterdam and you love beer.

Small interior but an impressive beer list, including a good selection on draught. I think they had Westvletern, it was written on the chalk board. Very loud, lots of tourists/travelers. Walls are stained from the smoke. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go here but it is only across the allley from the Cracked Kettle and is worth a short stop. Service was adequate.

my favorite beer bar to date. Snuggly fit in a small alley off of Singh Canal. Graet feeling here. Small bar with 10 stools & about 10 drafts. Chalk boards teel the beer story. Great place

Another well located bar in a small alleyway off Spuistraat. Right ’over the road’ (ie 2m) from the Cracked Kettle bottle ’o, well worth a visit in its own right. Has a definite locals vibe compared to most other bars in the city. (I still can’t believe how easy it is to get around this place!!). Very grungy inside but doesn’t suffer for this. Adds to the casual feeling. Perhaps 150 beers by bottle, mostly Belgian. 10-odd taps. P.s - short guys (height, not member length) need not apply for toilet rights!

Really friendly little bar across from the Cracked kettle. The service is very good, and the bar is mostly serious drinkers. They have some interesting beers in here even though they don’t have the selectino of In de Wildemen, the atmostphere here is a lot more free and cozy. They had Níce Chouffe on tap as the special and a pretty good bottle selection.

I really like this place. It is confined, over two floors and everyone is always friendly. Bar keep suggested Rochefort Trappistes 10 and De Dolle Oerbier after I tore my way through the tap beers. One complaint: not everything advertised is available but selection very impressive nonetheless. The Cracked Kettle beer shop, right outside, was open until late, with a huge bottle selection.
