De Bierkonig is situated very centrally in a street off Dam Square. Itís 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. Theyíre arranged by country and I defy anyone to find it hard to fill their basket here. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Plow your way through gormless tourists accross the Dam Square to this great beer shop, it is definitely worth the effort. Fine selection of Dutch beers as you would expect. Lots of the smaller brewers are well represented. English beers - not bad! Scandanavian - very good selection. US - a nice range with a smattering of rbottles rarely seen in Europe. There is plenty of Belgians as well and I think quite a good choice of German but to be honest I can never be bothered to look at those! Take a basket on entry and fill it up no problem, your only worry will be what not to take away. Service is always friendly and knowledgable! One of the best beer shops in Europe! Just be careful of the stacked crates outside the shop if you have had a few in the Bier Temple round the corner!!

Excellent beer shop a stoneís 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.

WOW!! 1100+ beers!! I was amazed at the selection of American micros even though that isnít what I was there for. I could have spent a lot of money here if I thought I could get all the beer back to the states in my luggage. Crates of Westvleteren 12 for the tourists (14.50 euros/bottle!). Tons of Belgians, Dutch, German, British, etc. They also have an incredible selection of glassware. I found all the prices to be very reasonable except for the Westys. Luckily we went to the St. Sixtus Abbey the week before and bought some at the In de Vrede. Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt!

Nice little store that offers a great variety of American beers. And a bunch from neighboring countries that I hadnít seen around before. Service was a bit lacking, and slow, but friendly enough. Prices seem to be a bit on the steep side for some stuff, but that is expected. But some of the more local stuff was way above average. If you want to find some American craft brew in the area, there seems to be an abundance in this store and the Cracked Kettle. Plus the BeerTemple has some on draft. Much better selection in this city than most of the rest of the surrounding cities and countries.

Centrally located store, that boasts a large amount of different beers at good prices. Sadly a lot of the available beers are a bit uninteresting macros, and the real gems are not as easy to find. Staff is a bit impassive, but knowledgeable and happy to help when asked. All in all itís a place thatís not easy to leave empty handed.

Very nice beer shop in a very central location. Magnificent selection of beers, low prices on most stuff compared to Cracked Kettle. Friendly staff. I like lambics downstairs... I could have spent all day in the store. Without a doubt one of the best beer shops that I have visited.
