No doubt, one of the best beer shops in the world. So many Belgians, many of which are not available in the USA. About a hundred dutch micros. Westvleteren at a reasonably fair price. Really great bottle shop.

This shop has a very large selection and I found beers here I found no where else in Amsterdam, like Andechs and Alvinne. The service was not very friendly and offered no help, and seemed bothered when I asked. Bierkoning canít beat the friendly atmosphere of the Cracked Kettle but the selection is far better.

Huge selection of beer, glassware etc. Also sell a great looking tshirt as well. Still prefer Cracked Kettel with Gollem across the alley. Surprsied to see Sam Adams on sale

Great lambic selection, and LOADS of (obscure) glassware. Relatively expensive though.

sayravai  (103) Helsinki, Finland | December 21, 2006| Updated December 22, 2006
A truly great (not only in quantity, but also in quality) selection of both Dutch and Belgian beers - but also many German, Polish, British, etc. A nice selection of seasonal beers, and rare Belgian breweries, such as De Graal, Glazen Toren, and Alvinne. The glass selection is outstanding, too. Very reasonable prices. The smokiness was a bit disturbing, but even that didnít distract me with that kind of selection.

I felt like being let loose in a candy store. Amazing selection of Dutch beers, the bock season had just started and the staff was very helpful in picking the style I wanted. Lots of fine Beligan and British beers, too, and the rest of the world is represented, too. A bit thin on US beers, perhaps, but anyone should be able to find some treasures here.

Kind of stumbled upon this accidentally and feel extremely lucky. Service at the counter was shitty, I donít like being completely ignored, even for regulars. Prices were good though, and selection is, of course, staggering.

When Iíve visited De Bierkoning itís usually been late in the afternoon when the shopkeepers have broken out the beers for themselves, making the service ... less stellar than most others here imply. But itís a friendly, personal place (smoky, though) with an astounding selection of local beers. I disagree about the high prices; most of their stuff costs 25-50% of what it would cost in Copenhagen ;-)
