Great selection and suggestions from the bartenders, but place is so smoky I couldnít even appreciate the beer. Drinking beer in this country is a chore and Iím rapidly losing interest in it. Everywhere I go has a toxic atmosphere that is not only unhealthy and annoying, it seriously detracts from my ability to smell and taste the beer. Iíll just have to wait until the locals all die of lung cancer and then I can come back to the Netherlands and have a chance to try their beers in safety and peace.

Get the draught sampler of Dutch beers - it can be from 4 up. Youíll get a description of each beer youíre delivered (youíll get them serially, not all at once). Knowledgeable staff, friendly, and definitely lovers of beer. After the 23 draught ones, there will be perhaps 120-150 Dutch bottled beers to choose from. Cross your fingers and hope that the American beer tourists that will be there wonít be the loud obnoxious type. Not too smoky, given the fact that itís still a smoking country/venue. Go there early - and go there often. 2 nights was nowhere near enough for someone not already very familiar with Dutch beers. And a final re-emphasis - brilliant staff.

This place is an absolute must visit for anyone interested in beer who stops through Amsterdam. Pretty much exclusively Dutch beers, and there is a menu with hundreds. 12 or so Drafts serving top notch stuff. All this and an easy location and great prices. I canít wait to get back.

Get the sampler to start, then pick pints of your favorites. About 50 to choose from, all Belgium beers, all delicious. I was there during the day and was the only one in the bar and it was wonderful. Very informative place to visit. If you are in Amsterdam, you must add this to your list of places to visit.

Middle sized place with large bar, very serene and full of natural light. Several tap beers and lots of spirits. Besides De Wildeman, this is the best beer place in Amsterdam. Cosy atmosfere, nice natural enviroment, friendly and knowledgeable waiter. Numerous beer commercials (more banners and decorations) on the walls, but I donítí get how the statue of wooden Apache fits in under the sign Trappisten Bieren.

skortila  (174) Baarn, Netherlands | September 11, 2007
Excellent place in the centre of Amsterdam, located at walking distance of the Central Station. It has a pure dutch selection on tap and bottle. They also have old bottles (la trappe quadrupel, hertog jan grand prestige) aged for about 4-5 years. Really worth a try. The place itself has a classy ambience. Music is kept at a low volume so you can still hear each other. Now, dutch beers should improve more and more...

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | September 2, 2007| Updated September 10, 2007
One of my favourite beer bars in the world, this is a winning formula for anyone who is not dutch. Marvellous draught list including 7 of the 30 or so Dutch beers Iíd put on my must-try list. Classy place with less smokers than most. Just out of the very centre of Amsterdam, so it seems it may get a bit less packed. To give you an idea of the situation, Iím in Amsterdam for a week, I was at the Wildeman and Arendsnest yesterday. I wonít go back to the Wildenman, but Iíll go back to Arendsnest... everyday. Friendly, efficient, passionate even staff. Probably more dutch brews than the Bierkoning store. Soft jazz and old rock music kept at low volume. Remarkable spot that reached expectations, but how could it not?

A must visit when in Amsterdam, justoutside the busy centre. Often quiet but steady, it offers an unprecedented number of Dutch beers on draft (at least 15 I think) and around 150 in bottle. The staff are very very knowledgeable and will always engage you in conversationn regarding the beers. Although food is limited, the small snacks are perfect to keep on going. Even the most ardent beer hunter will be challenged by the beer list. The biggest compliment to any bar/pub is that it will be revisited as soon as possible and I canít wait to visit again.
