Great place to visit when in Amsterdam. Has a good ambience like many Amsterdam brown houses, but can easily get overcrowded. The barmaid I was served by could have been more helpful when asked for a suggestion, I ended up with one of the tap beers that I didnít enjoy much (but I could have been more detailed in explaining my likes and dislikes). I was especially happy when I found that they have a separate blackboard at the front listing the De Molen beers they have as there were not many listed on the taps board or in the bottle menu.

My wife (not a beer drinker) was able to find a chocolate liqueur they had which she found delicious, so she was happy to let me sit there all night sipping at De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis (Wild Turkey Barrel). Bliss.

Another great beer experience in Amsterdam. All Dutch beer, and, having visited in the Bock season, lots if lively dark beer to taste. Not so great if this wasnít your bag, but plenty of bottles to look at. Nice beer snacks of cheese, good service, and a friendly at the bar culture of drinking. Shared v pleasant hour 45 mins with a group of Americans in a stag, but the ambience stayed convivial and busy. Top place.

A small, but cozy place. The selection is only from small Dutch breweries, but thatís what you go in expecting. Excellent selection of small brews from all Dutch microbreweries. The decor is very Dutch as well. Knowledgeable staff that will serve you with a smile though the friendliness and excellent English skills is what you come to expect from the Dutch anyways. A bit pricey by Dutch standards, but you pay for quality.

The best place to sample dutch beers. This place has a real taster vibe to it - almost everyone there is really taking note of what they are drinking. Very limited food selection but what they have is great - interesting cheeses and sausages. Very fancy environment - the staff are perfection. No pretense but they truly know everything about what they are serving and love to talk about it. On a second trip to Arendsnest in 5/12 had an even better experience, the staff here truly are the very best and have no pretense or judgement whatsoever. Upranking the food a bit too because it really is the perfect stuff to eat while focusing on trying new beers. This is the 3-star Michelin of beer bars. Absolute perfection.

Possibly the best place for Dutch beers in Amsterdam. Nice cafe, if a little pricey. Recommended.

30 taps (some small Dutch breweries represented). Quite small and loud (Thursday night). Not very cheap. Huge selection of Dutch micros on bottles. Right glass for almost every beer. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited the place with my wife Jab 2011. Very nice pub quite centrally located. Great selection of Dutch beers both on tap and bottles. No food, but the usual pub chew; cheeses, crisps and nuts. Friendly staff.

Very nice small but lively bar. Friendly staff who generally know the beers they sell. Lot of taps and beers from all Dutch Breweries on bottle. Got to see their cellar and cooling system once as well. Recommended when you have the opportunity.

30 taps- all nederlands biers. Not only were almost all 30 beers new to me, there were many brewers i had never heard of available. The place to go to try a wide variety of quality netherlands beers. great service, bartender was quite knowledgeable. sampling is encouraged, as they donít want one to drink beer they do not like. relaxing soft funky jazz or something playing in the background. clean place. relaxing. outdoor seating available on the canal out front. enjoyed my time here quite a bit, and surely a must visit when in amsterdam.
