Excellent beer shop in Amsterdam’s center. Wide selection of beer. In general prices are all right, I love this shop.

Really really good beer store. The trays of Westy 12 and 8 are a starting point. I was particularly pleased with the highly rated De Molen beers and a few foreign goodies (Brewdog Tokyo*), but the clincher was the great selection of lambics downstairs. A bit scattershot in its organization and a bit cramped, but call that part of the charm. Great location, just a brief walk from the Nieuwe Kerk.

Centrally located two-story, though still rather small, beer shop. Nice selection though, with a good mix of Dutch, Belgian, American and some other European beers. Has a couple of gems but a prices of course. Good prices in general though. Cracked Kettle is only a short walk from here and I would recommend to visit both places before buying anything.

There is nothing I can add here that’s 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. I’ve 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 can’t 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

Smaller shop, located close to the Royal Palace, stuffed with a superb selection of great (international) beers; friendly service as well. Don’t miss it !

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 can’t 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.
