If someone like Lindeboom brews from draft, this is "i think" the only place in Amsterdam have them all. Beautiful location on the other hand.

Nothing to add to what Borrestein and Boudicca said. Lovely decor.

Great location, really nice interior like Boudicca described, multi-storey bar. However, over-crowded with tourists, bachelor parties, drunk Brits, over-priced, etc. Yes they have a lot of the Lindeboom beers, but thatís it. Just take a peek for the interior, and leave.

Heffer is by the Damrak canal basin and behind the large red brick Beurs at the end of a back street lined with cheap hotels so, inevitably, itís a touristy place with prices to match. On the plus side, the inside is lovely - old fashioned and elegant with bare salted floorboards, wood panelled walls, impressive mirrored panels behind the bar and brass chandeliers. As has been noted in previous reviews, they have the full range of Lindeboom beers, mainly on draught. (Visited 1 October 2012).

The place for Lindeboom, but they donít have many beers besides that. The food is great, and the staff is very helpfull and smiling. A small, but very nice place to have lunch and a beer.

Quite an attractive bar in an awful location.Attracts pissed tourists happy to pay the high prices. The beers are by Lindeboom and very dull.

Went here with caesar. Indeed an overpriced bar. Friendly and good working staff. But for me more place-ticking. Nice for tourists, less interesting for beergeeks.

Horrible, overpriced bar. True, they have Lindeboom stuff if you are interested. Location is a tourist trap. Service was quite ok for Dutch standards to be honest. Usually you have to wave your hands for 3 hours to draw the attention of the bored staff, but the ladies of Heffer were very quick in taking the order and bringing the beers. I was pleasantly surprised by that.

Come here often with the guys as itís a regular hang out of ours. Pretty dismal part of Aídam but very central. The Lindeboom beers are all welcome.

A quite grand building behind the beurs on the cut through from Damrak to Warmoesstraat. Looked quite interesting inside too from what I noticed when I popped inside from the terrace to visit the toilet. The terrace is a pleasant enough spot to sit and watch the world (and plenty of tourists) go by when the sun is shining. And, given the location, plenty of the customers are tourists too. Fairly extensive food menu but I wasnít eating. Service was relatively swift and efficient - not always the case for busy pavement cafes. None of this is, however, much of a reason for including this place here. The reason I added it is because it carries a pretty full range of Lindeboom beers - Pilsener, Venloosch Alt, Venloosch Wit, Gouverneur Blonde and Gouverneur Brune - on tap. The only place I found in Amsterdam that did so. I know the Lindeboom beers are not necessarily any great shakes (although the Venloosch Alt & Gouverneur Brune are decent enough) but, if youíre a completist like me, youíll want to give them a try and this is a good a place as any to do so. They have some bottles too although I didnít notice what they were (or whether they included the Oud Bruin).
