Central location by a nice canal (with some tables outside right by the canal). Small but very nice bar, exactly the kind of place I like. Staff is very nice and know their beers. 30 taps, 16 of them guest taps - all of them from Dutch micros (!). A lot of Dutch bottles as well. If you only have time for one bar in Amsterdam ´t Arendnest should be the one.

This is the place to go when in Amsterdam. A guy came to the bar and asked for some Belgian beer and the bartender said, "we only serve Dutch beers". The man’s face was incredible, "ONLY Dutch beer?" he said. Well, hey, there’s a lot of great beer here. The 30 or so taps, plus the extensive bottles, can entertain you for a long time. Prices were reasonable, I thought (4 euros for a good imperial stout, smallish glass of 30 cl)--with a charming ambience and very helpful bartenders. I’m going back....

Very small bar in an area just off the busier streets in the city centre. Very nice selection of Dutch beers, with 30 beers on tap including some really nice ones like De Molen. Respectable bottle selection as well. Bartender wasn’t very friendly though, prefering to read a newspaper over chatting to customers. Fairly good prices considering the location and quality of the beers. Only accepts creditcard payment on purchasesover €10.

Visited a couple weekends I missed this after spending a lot of time in amsterdam is beyond me. As others note, it’s ambience is fairly ’new’/manufactured for the neighborhood/area, but was a great place to spend a few hours. All dutch beers - official goal/slogan is to have at least one beer from all brewers in the Netherlands. Beer book is divided into ’breweries’ and ’contract brewers’. Service was really, really good and knowledgable. Of the beer bars in the city, I’d put it solidly on top solely because of the concept.

Quite busy with good atmosphere in retro style, although it feels a bit created. Good selection of beers, the housebeer "roodborst" is definitly worth a try.

Oh yes, this is the kind of place I’m looking for while travelling. Amsterdam has a lot of bars with a good selection of Belgian beers, which is nice. But if I go to the Netherlands, I want to try some Dutch beers. So where do I go? To the Arendsnest of course. Centrally located by the Herengracht canal, not far from the other great beer place in Amsterdam, In De Wildeman. The whole bar is a long room along most of which is a beautiful bar shining with copper and brass. If the weather is good, there’s additional seating outside by the canal. Staff is friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. 30 beers on tap, all of them are Dutch (ok, some are actually brewed in Belgium by dutch brewers, but lets skip the technicalities), most of them from small brewers. Impressive selection of bottled beers, with the ambition of having something from every brewery in the Netherlands. This really is a beer hunters dream. Lovely place, a must visit in Amsterdam. And I’ll be back.

There have been quite some reviews about this place, and there is not much to add. One thing, however, is worth knowing about the Arendsnest. Each year in October there is the Amsterdam Bokbierfestival. An insanely crowded affair which might not be everyone’s thing. But now for the good part: On the last day of the Bokbierfestival, after the winners were announced, you can find the winner of each category and the top ten overall on tap at the Arendsnest as long as stocks last. If you can’t be bothered to go to the Bokbierfestival, but still want to sample the cream of the crop, go to the Arendsnest on the monday after.
