Pkg was successfully received with a bullet proof packing job! What a pleasure to do business with. This place is only 1 of 3 suppliers I found worldwide to ship TT Landlord to the states. The other 2 providers were higher priced (both product and shipping) with direct contact required (no internet) based in the UK and AU. Hands down best place! Thanks for making it easy.

Best beer store Iíve been in on this trip.. and it wasnít close. Andy & Jeff were both wonderful from service and went well beyond selling to helping me find packaging to get all my new stuff home, WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND HERE. They can both talk beer and will likely cross the street to the golem for one after work with you. Selection is great, service outstanding, pricing very good. I would return everytime Iím in the city.. oh and they had some great hidden little Struisse gems I had not scene anywhere else.

Feb 7, 2010 - One of my favourite beer stops in the world. The shop interior is authentic, lovely and inspiring. The staff is always helpful and informed. The selection is very good, although I find it harder and harder to find something new there. (A testament to how much Iíve already bought there.) The location and opening hours are also unbeatable. The downside remains the pricing but I give a break to the little guy whoís just not buying the volumes. And where else in Europe do they sell Dark Lord, Pliny, Westvleteren, Three Floys, the full Struisse line-up, etc etc. Aug. 21, í06. Very friendly service. Great location across from De Gollem. Bought a few Abbey Dubbels and will definitely come back. - Returned in December 2006 to buy Westvleteren, of which they have all 3 and costs much cheaper than in Brussels..

Visited both this place and Bierkoning, and in the end I bought all of my beer here, the selection of belgians is excellent, and they seemed to have most of the Struise brews and lots of other excellent stuff. Check out the dates on the bottles as a lot of the stuff was pretty old, no bad thing if you want some aged beers. They also had all 3 Westvleterens, but at 8-10euro a bottle they werenít cheap. Friendly service and well worth a trip.

I can only speak for the online shop, as I did not visit this shop during my stay in Amsterdam. Service and response on my e-mails has been top, always noticed me when the shipment leaved their premises with tracking ID.Excellent selection for a Norwegian like me, with some hard to find beers as well.

An awesome beer shop in Central Amsterdam. To start, this place is (or was when I was in town) open on Sunday, which Bierkonig was not. The selection here is huge, spanning three floors. Price/value runs the gamut with something for everyone. Easily one of the best beer stores I have ever visited.
