Probably my favorite bar in Amsterdam. Not exactly a young crowd, but the menu makes up for it Ė really specializes in Dutch stuff. Tons on tap. Big whisky selection, too. Relaxed pub atmosphere.

The Barman is a bit reserved until he has seen you a few times. I met the owner and his wife, young and hard workers. The Barman & Owner were quite knowledgeable and took me on a very nice tour of Dutch beers. They also know their Genevers quite well and Iíve developed a taste for Genever thanks to them. Great place for a "Kopstoot" and some tasty bar snacks

McNick and I got to ít Arendsnest after a long (and wet) walk around the canals. The bar is fairly large and elongated with a nice rustic atmosphere and breweriana covering all four walls. The place was empty when we got there at opening but you could tell things would quickly get more cheerful with a few more people. The barman was very stoic and let us take our time with the impressive beer list. Everything youíll find is from Dutch breweries, including the full lineups of some high raters like ít IJ, La Trappe or Scheldebrouwerij. Some interesting vintages were available at a good price as well as snack food (I recommend the trappist cheese). The lights are dim which makes it difficult to judge the color of beers. I also found the barman a bit timid but I would give the place another chance anytime, at least for the selection.

I rate the selection a ten owing to the fact that Pater has set out his aims and achieved them. A warm welcome is practically ensured from well informed staff. Never tried food, was too interested in the beer. They also have a fine selection of Dutch jenever and a few single malts, one of the barmen being an expert in whisky.

This is the one! The best beer bar in Amsterdam, and one of my favourites in the world! Dutch beers only, including around 12 on tap - that suits me for a start. Lots of bottles too. Plus youíre off the tourist track, and can relax in the homely, beautifully presented bar, on a lovely canalside street. 5ish mins from centraal station - this is unmissable.

This is place to visit for Dutch beers. They just had 5th anniversary when I visited there. Lots of rare stuff.

Knowledgeable staff, and since craft beers in the Netherlands in the last few years have exploded, the selection is pretty good too. Huge amount of respect for Peter vd Arend for his pioneering activities. Over time it has become a lot more crowded than it used to be, indicating that he was right all along :-).
