Travlr  (2466) Washington, Washington DC | June 24, 2016
Visited during a Carnevale Brettanomyces event. Beers were being served on the sidewalk, which got very crowded very quickly. You had to buy tickets for the beers, and the ticket seller was not moving swiftly, so it was a big bottleneck and didn’t help the crowds any. So they need to work on their events. But the bottle shop is - overwhelming. Massive selection on two levels. I didn’t know where to start. With no wifi, though, I REALLY didn’t know where to start. Still, it was the best bottle shop of the trip by far, and is not likely to be rivaled. Reasonable prices. A must stop while in Amsterdam.

Fantastic selection in a small shop purely dedicated to good beer. The selected of Dutch beer is tops here, with a number of quality Belgian and German bottles as well. What else can I say? You should visit this store, but also be sure to visit Cracked Kettle, which I found to be even better. It wasn’t the mecca I was expecting, but certainly it’s a place not to miss while in Amsterdam.

Visited September 2012.

Wow, this is a touristy stop. Its setup to optimize traffic. You enter and wander around a narrow walk way and end up at the register. If you want to stop and look at something people end up having to squeeze by you. They do have a bit of everything though, albeit at a high price. 3 Fonteinen and Cantillon were present. I’ve heard stories of Westvleteren showing up as well. Plenty of US-made beers too. We grabbed some obscure items (I got a Roodebol that I ended up ordering again at Kulminator two days later) and took off for some more brewery hopping but not before spending a bit of money. I can’t comment on the service since I was mostly just browsing and there was a line of people behind me.

Really the only beer shop you need to hit in Amsterdam. Tons of beers from all over Europe and a fair amount of stuff from the US as well. Prices are good. The place is really cramped, though, so don’t plan on bringing any big bags inside.

De Bierkonig is situated very centrally in a street off Dam Square. It’s not large but it fits a tremendous selection of high quality beers into the small area at the front and up a short set of wooden steps to a platform area. They’re arranged by country and I defy anyone to find it hard to fill their basket here. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent beer shop a stone’s throw from Beer Temple. A selection of local Dutch brews I had not seen elsewhere. Many Belgian and US bottles. A small selection of vintage too. Glassware available. Busy staff.

Visited on Sunday 28/09/14 around 1pm and the place was doing a good trade. Smallish bottle shop effectively split over 3 levels. The entrance level is the service area with a fridge or two, the lower level is geueze and sours (plenty of Cantillons etc) and the upper level carries the bulk of the beer which is well laid out by country. Lots of Dutch beer as you’d imagine, a good shelf worth of Mikkeller, a good selection of UK and US beers, etc etc. Service was friendly and help proffered if required. The individual beers are also well labelled in respect to style etc. Prices seemed pretty fair. A world class bottle shop!

One of the best beer shops I have ever been in. Really, I was just thrilled to spend time in here. Prices are pretty damn fair and the selection is unreal. I bought so much beer here. Can’t wait to return.

Only got to this Beer Shop in Amsterdam, unfortunately I never made the Cracked Kettle, though I would struggle to see how this could possible be beaten on the staggering choice, rare stuff and reasonable prices. I concentrated on mostly Dutch beers from De Molen but I also got a few from Mikkeller but I was limited on what I could carry as I was situated on a campsite out of town. Very friendly staff, who suggested De Wildeman and ’T Arendsnest bars as ’got to go to’ places. Visited here twice but if I lived in Amsterdam I would never be out of this place. One of the best speciality beers shops I’ve ever visited.

Amazing beer store, one of the best I’ve ever been to. Quite ridiculous selection wise: Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Port moving to De Molen, 3 Fonteinen, Cantillon, to tons of obscure local Dutch brews. Even weird international stuff from Australia and New Zealand. Tons of glassware for sale. Had Westy Blond, 8, and 12 for sale as singles for 6 euros. Sort of jaw dropping selection wise. I had to sprint out before I bought 50 bottles.
