There is nothing I can add here thatís new. Best beer store in the country, and the location is great. Just a little too small. The people working there know everything and are always friendly, even when just showing people the way to the railway station.

Well... Wow is all I have to say. When you walk in there is a glorious glass selection on your left. A very good "on the go" selection on your right. And then the fun really begins straight ahead. Iíve been in world class liquor stores, wine stores... But never have I seen a store so dedicated to beer. The Belgian section rivals (in quality) any store I saw in Brussles and Brugges. Then They had German, Scandinavian, American and Dutch craft brews upstairs. Everything on the shelf was worthy of bringing home. Then if you turn around, aged Westy, Rochefort, and Achel. Go downstairs and you will find a lambic playground. Damn. I canít imagine a better beer store. I only wished I had more room in my luggage.

De Bierkoning is a major beerstor in the heart of Amsterdam just off Dam. Cosy atmosphere with beers everywhere. The good thing is that you can get so many very good beers here. Lot of Trappists, Mikkellers, Molen and american stuff. The downside of having sooo many beers is that there is a lot of crappy beers too. So you can say that there is a beer for every costumer..but I guess I would prefer less beers that all was of good quality. Looking for beerglases this is the place to go. Nice staff

Nice beer shop that has an excellent collection, even some old beers. Also a great collection of glassware. Friendly service as well. Only the prices are a bit on the high side, but hey, I canít blame them.

Absolutely, hands down, the number one beer destination that I found on my trip to Amsterdam. De Bierkoning is a very cool little multi-level shop with an excellent beer and glassware selection. The staff was super friendly and even looked up some beers on RateBeer for me. Lambics are located on the lower floor (best selection I found on my entire trip), glassware on the ground floor, and the rest of the brews on the upper level. They had anything and everything De Molen it seemed, including an exclusive strong saison brewed just for them. For the most part, if it is brewed in the Netherlands and bottled, they have it. Their selection of Belgians also eclipsed that of any store I found in Belgium. Pricing was extremely reasonable. Fantastic beer store.

The Cracked Kettle might be nicer looking with itís rustic interiour and the beautiful sign outside, but De Bierkoning trumps it both in selection and prices. The staff are all very knowledgeable when it comes to the almost 1000 beers they have in stock, and if you manage to get past their veneer of being horribly desensitized by truckloads of tourists asking for Heineken then they will prove to be very friendly and helpful. The selection is overwhelming. You will probably find everything brewed somewhere in Belgium or the Netherlands there. Add a wide range of British, U.S., Scandinavian and German beers, supplemented by a quite a few staple products from other places and you have one hell of a beer shop. The only word that comes to my mind is authoritative. If you can, pick a rainy weekday early afternoon to go there. This keeps the probability low that the staff are kept busy by tourists, and can share their extensive knowledge and taste with you. Also a good thing to know: There are two beers available there which you cannot get anywhere else because they are made exclusively for this shop. Those are the Vlo by Brouwerij ít Ij and the Ton sur Ton by Brouwerij De Molen.

Nice beerstore with a lot of different beers, I used the The Cracked Kettle when they had this nice homepage where you can sit at home and plan what to buy.
