More modern than their old place, but they have still that old Dutch 60/70ís feel in a corner in the brewpub. Most of them beers on draft here.

Nice place in Amsterdam where you can get some food and decent house beers. I tried the kŲlsch which was good for the style.

Visited de Prael and tasted pretty much everything that was on tap, about 6-7 of their selection. Some other were available on bottle too, but some really high rated were missing. Service was not the best, and could surely get better, wasnít bad though. The prices were a little huigh on the tasting options. I donít think I would run there the moment I set my foot toi Amsterdam again!

Great beer and a fun place to hang out. Place is usually pretty loud and energetic. The decor is fun, and the tap handle faucets in the bathrooms is a great touch. Staff doesnít seem to know or care much about the beer, theyíll tell you what style it is, but thatís about it. Getting service there can also be a pain, and my bill has never been accurate (out of 12 or so visits). The food is average pub grub, but itís at least nice to eat while drinking (most of the best beer places in Amsterdam donít serve food). Cash only (inconvenient). Even with the gripes, I still recommend the place - overall, itís fun and the beer is good.

A great little brewpub tucked away down the side streets of Amsterdam. Superb atmosphere, great decor and good service. A good tap and bottled selection. Something for everyone (who likes De Prael beers!).

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon. The place is really spacious and was almost empty. Plenty of seating available. The interior is nowhere near as beautiful as Arendsnest and Wildeman. Friendly staff, but not super knowledgeable from my super limited experience here (couldnít get any details on one of their beers). Limited selection with mostly their beers, but also a couple other Netherlands breweries. Prices are really good. Nice place that is worth a visit, especially if you are in Amsterdam for more than 2-3 days.

We just happened to stumble by this place when walking through Amsterdamís seediest area. Fortunately amidst all of the dreadful Irish pubs, rude Indonesian restaurants, coffee shops, and prostitutes, there is a place where someone can drink a local beer and eat a weinerschnitzel. This is that place. It is located on a tiny street and were it not for a small sign, it would be quite hard to find. However, I was glad I found it. The beer selection while not voluminous was all new to be so I was happy. There were probably 6-8 beers on tap as far as I remember, along with a few additional bottles of their beer in the coolers. The bar was a tad loud, but nothing compared to Blind Tiger in New Amsterdam. The staff were all nice (apparently, they are former convicts or people with anger issues... according to a very talkative Dutch guy who spoke to me for quite a while) and were very concerned whenever anything was moving slowly or a full beer wasnít before me. The food was alright and was not a terrible value considering the fairly large portions. The beer was tasty. I enjoyed trying some Dutch stouts and IPAs. If I was a millionaire I would visit again sometime.

Visited on Friday night. It was very full of course, but the crowd stayed manageable throughout the evening. Itís nice to be in a large place that can accomodate many people coming and going every once in a while, especially in Amsterdam where it is certainly not the norm. The ambiance wasnít really at asking the barmen for tips or special information, but the service was fine. They have a nice variety of Dutch pub grub for OK prices (a bit on the expensive side). The beer however is good value, the prices are similar to the other Aídam brewpubs. All in all I would recommend this place, the location is also much to itís advantage, an easy stop for someone pub-crawling the center of Amsterdam.
