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.

Visited several times since 2008. More than 1000 craft beers, friendly and knowledgable staff, central location...This place is amazing! Probably the best beershop in the world.

Nice store, a bit surprised how they can keep so many beers in such a small place. Staff is helpful, selection is probably the best in NL, they have some very rare beers, but I think it could be even better if they had a bigger place. They should have more German, British, eastern european, nordic and american beers. Shelves were not totally filled up, but I visited them on a Saturday afternoon, so I understand it. Prices are a bit higher than some other competitors, but I also understand it as itís in the center of Aídam. The biggest cons is that I couldnít find all the prices under to the bottles. Probably because they change their stock very often.

Excellent selection of beers, especially Dutch, Belgian & USA. Some German, Italian, Spanish & French. Made 3 visits 21, 24 & 29/6. There were some slight changes & additions to the stock even over this brief period.

Mooie winkel, gelegen net buiten het centrum, met zeer uitgebreid assortiment. Helaas was prijzig.

Staff:Was quite helpfull, but a bit typical Dutch direct way,which could sometimes been wrongly interpretated as unfriendly. by foreigners. Anyway they more then helpfull to point out and dig up some rare items, which just came in, where not directly in the sales system and were the bottom of the boxes, which just arrived. When I showed interest in some specific items. Prices are a bit all over the place. hich I can understand hapening with a collection like they have. Collection: A good selection of Scandinavian, Uk, Belgian, US, Dutch, French brews. Some Italian, and a few Irish beers and some other countries in small amounts. I was onlky dissapointed by the German collection. But for the space bthey have they are doing an excellent job. Cleary worth a visit

World class bottle shop, great selection from around the world. Lots of great European and Dutch micros plus outstanding, hard to find US beers. The bottom of the shop has great selection of sours/lambics. I bought a bottle of Pliney the Elder there, bottled less than 1 month before. Prices are not bad for the incredible selection. Will visit this shop every time I go to Amsterdam.

I went there on a Sunday afternoon. Small/medium store located close to Amsterdam center. Not too crowded when I went. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Selection is really impressive, not because the quantity of bottles (which is really good), but mostly because of the quality. Pretty good selection from Netherlands, but also from UK (The Kernel, Siren, Thornbridge, Buxton +), USA (Prairie, Lost Abbey +), France (Mont SalŤve) and some lambics too (Tilquin Quetsche, some Cantillon +). The only little problem with the selection was the 1+ year old Pale Ale from Buxton and a couple of other breweries on the shelves. Prices are a tad high, but similar to what you can find in other European big cities. A really nice store with a superb selection and friendly staff. I would love to have a store like that in my neighbourhood.

Tiny place, fantastic selection with some rarities, better selection of US beers than you can find almost anywhere else in Europe. Very friendly staff.
