Quite spacious compared to most other bars in Amsterdam. I like the interior with a lot of wood. Not the fastest staff, but they’re friendly and seemed to try as hard as they could. Good thing is that they have tasters: 4 of their own beers and you get some very tasty cheese with it as well. The bad thing is their beers aren’t very good. Not bad, but kind of so so, just under 3.0 or thereabout. Not a bad beerlist either, so I’d say it’s worth a visit at least once.

No prices on taplist, no info on bottled presented and slow service by stressed out staff. I noticed one in the staff pouring up less beer in the glass than others.

Visited around 7.30pm on Thursday 25/09/14.
Old style cafe bar with brewkit on display in the corner after the bar.
The place was about 2/3rds full but fairly lively. Ken and I settled down at the bar.
Service was slowish but the one guy behind the bar was working flat out - not his fault.
They had 4 of their own beers on tap plus a couple of others from Belgium.
House beers were ok but nothing to seek out other than for ticks (hovering around the 3.0 mark for me).
In all a nice enough venue but not go to unless you are hunting down their own beers.

Spent an evening here with some colleagues, very spacious cafe for this part of Amsterdam (nieuwmarkt), tons of seating available spread out over 3 half floors. Slightly beat up looking bar, but it has a bit of vintage charm. It got progressively fuller as we sat there (from 7 to midnight) but was never crowded on a Friday night. Waitress was kind, efficient and knowledgeable. They had 4 of their beers on tap, nothing stellar but certainly drinkable. Prices were pretty hefty, at 6,50 a pint this may be the most expensive brewpub in A’dam. They had some typical Dutch pub grub that was decent as food. Would return if given the occasion.

Pleasant little Cafe bar close to Cafe de Engelbewaarder, so good to group up the both of them. Certainly open at 11:30 am for early tasters and I went for the tasting tray, which was good fun. The waitress was excellent, making sure I had exactly the beers that I wanted, no request was scorned, even suggesting the order I should try them in, she knows her stuff. Lovely sitting outside on a sunny lunchtime, it’s busier here than the other side of the canal but not overly so.

Visited March 2013. Only one! staff to serve the entire place on this very busy day. And she was rude!!! "No selfservice at the bar!, so sit down." Yes, maam! Cobber kettles placed to view. The beers were under average. The "Witte" OK.

I was there when it was very quiet, but the staff were extremely friendly and the brewer was happy to chat.
The place seemed well laid out and is in a good location close to the red light area. They have a very good range of beers, including (when I was there) four of their own beers on tap - I tried the bock (in season)

Visited September 2012.
This was a stop in the middle of the day after having been shut down at Bierfabriek and gone site seeing (Rebrandt’s house and Anne Frank’s house plus some other stuff). Despite being quiet and not having a ton of beers to pick from I liked sitting out on the sidewalk and trying the house beers right next to a canal. It may have had more to do that I wasn’t burned out on the giant tourist trap that Amsterdam is at this point but I thought the place had a nice atmosphere with decent house beers. OK, the house beers weren’t great but they were certainly drinkable, and the brewing set up is interesting. It’s all copper and on display in the back of the café.

15.07.2013. Very nice brewpub with classic interior with the brass and everything. We sat outside and enjoyed good quality beers together with some kind of cheese! Very nice combo! Very nice to sit quietly by the canal and enjoy the atmospher with all the busy bicyclers!
