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 wasnít the mecca I was expecting, but certainly itís a place not to miss while in Amsterdam.

Nice place, great selection, ok service, lacking in all the stuff I wanted to find here at the time though..... Unless thereís something here you canít find else where skip it for the cracked kettle which is FAR SUPPERIOR in my opinion.

Amazing selection of beers, at least from Belgium and Holland. Reasonable selection of other countries too. Presumably mostly only the cream of each country, as they only had Finlandís best brewer, and none of the shit stuff (unlike Utobeer, which only had one of the worst ones). Pleasant and helpful staff.

Massive selection and very clean shop. Service was great but not as personable as the Cracked Kettle. If you are on a trek to find beer, between the two De Bierkoning and the Cracked Kettle will have everything you want.

Massive selection, though the cracked kettle has a few you wont find here and vice versa. All the glasses for the beers are displayed behind the counter, and from the street you might think its a kitchen store. Lots of nice gift packs for trappist beers and lots of others all well.

Impressive selection of beers, arranged neatly and sold cheaply. A good, clean, tidy shop. Small, but thereís enough room to move around the selection and make your choices. Probably one of the best beer shops Iíve encountered.

My first big beer store with items from all over the world. Great beer choice and I simply didnít know what to buy. Only one little complain: I havnít find any beer from new country.

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | September 4, 2007
By a fair margin the most solid selection in Amsterdam, so the place is immediately an absolute must-visit. If I stayed in Amsterdam for a month or so, Iíd likely hit the place everyday to go through Netherlandsí beers. I picked about 10 and could easily have picked another 10 that I considered must. Lots of imports as well, at least 5 rare belgians that I regret not having picked. Knowledgeable, passionate staff, completely willing to help. Central location, just out of Dam Square in the very heart of the town. Limited opening hours in the weekend though, closing at 18 and even worse on sunday when it only opens at 13. Very very large collection of glassware (100?) at very reasonable prices too (2-5 euros).
