Small and dark like many Belgian beer bars. It had a nice collection of bottles on the wall. Fortunately we got a table in the small upstairs and were comfortable. The selection is unreal - being that I started out with a Westy 12 and 8 says that right away. The selection was large and of awesome quality and rarity, although we are in Holland right in the beer belt. They had tons of Belgian, Dutch, German, Czech, and other beers available. The list went around for quite a bit, very satisfying for new and experienced beer geeks.

Cafe Gollem is a small, crowded, but not too noisy bar. The athmosphere is friendly, the tap list is limited, but the bottle list is extensive.

One of the very best pubs in Amsterdam. Very cosy, nice guy behind counter and cat watching clients. Lavatory could be better, one can barely fit into it and scruffy outlook is not uplifting.

This is a very friendly place, that can provide a great introduction to traditional Belgian beers for anyone visiting Amsterdam. I’ve been there three times and met memorable people each time.

Old fashioned dark wooden place with alot of pathina and curiosa on the walls and on the cealing. You can get a lot of beers here. Unfortunately you dont get any new experimental or micro brews - but all the traditionals are here and maybe a few more. Its a cosy place that easely can call for a refill.

Small, dark and worn place with a fair selection of Belgian beers. Friendly and helpful staff in the bar, the place is pretty lo-fi, like a cosy cave. I would say it’s for people that are serious about beer, and I saw several beer tourists around, when I last visited in February 2009.

Nice bar just across the alley from De Gekraakte Ketel. Rather dark interior with a small space around the bar just inside the door and more seating halt a stair up. Rather dark and quite grotty interior. But nice and friendly place with efficient staff. Beer selection is mainly Belgian with some interesting stuff. Good selection of Belgian bottled beers. Tried a couple of Struise beers. Rather centrally located so a visit is definitely recommended.

I cannot be that objective about the first place I ever drank Belgian beers a third of a century ago. This place is part of the historical foundations of the late 20th century’s beer revolution. It is also a drab and smoky old bar with a bit of a lazy beer list right now.

A small bar right across the beer store Cracked Kettle. Good beer selection, dark and old interior. Used some of the time there too look at the beerbottles they had around.

A cozy tucked-in pub in the alley across from Cracked Kettle. Has a small bar in front with extra seating in back. This bar mostly focuses on Belgian beers, both on tap and in bottles. Lots of bottles, though not much on rarities. They had Black Albert in bottles, but for 9.50 euro each, it’s not worth your while. Fortunately, there’s plenty of other beers to choose from. Bartender was friendly and jovial, which is nice in a drab bar such as this one. A nice little place, though
