Nice, small bottle shop in the centre. The selection consists of a few of their own beers and other Dutch, Belgian, German and US beers, mainly covering the classic Belgians and newer Dutch micros. Not only beers, but also their other produces like calvados or jenever can be bought. Prices are quite fair, especially for their own beers. The service is really good, the staff even brought me fresh bottles from another room and labelled them right then. Of course they also know the stories behind their beers. Nice place to visit, would recommend a detour if you’re around.

Looks like a livingroom filled with beers and liquors, quick look... Decent selection of beers from Netherlads and Germany. Prices are normal and service is friendly. Only three beers from the brewery for sale, pity. But with a lot of local stuff for sale makes a visit worth when in the vicinity. Expect no rarities but some import at times makes it ok! Hope they will expand their own beers quick!
Bottle shop located and run at the Schans brewery in the tiny village of Uithoorn. In the middle of nowhere but if you take the right roads you’ll be treated to great classic Dutch landscape and beautiful twisty river roads. The shop offers mostly Belgian stuff from larger micros and some lesser known Dutch brewer as well. The odd English ale or Brew Dog bottle completes the picture. Prices are low. Most importantly though is their own lineup, which at any given moment is made up of about 6 of their beers I believe. And very well worth te visit as they are quite rare and definitely delicious. Super friendly service from the women as well. So if you’re up for a fun drive through the Dutch polder or am desperate to try the Schans beers sometime, it’s a must visit.
Since moving away from Amsterdam this is now the closest beerstore for me. And I am happy with it. Good selection of Dutch, Belgian, German and American beer with some other ones as well. Arranged by style, you can even have a peek at the brewery itself if you look through the door.
Nice little beer & whisky shop with some unusual stuff on the shelves, especially the English and American (e.g. Unibroue, never seen it in Holland before), all arranged by style. Prices were higher than e.g. de Bierkoning in Amsterdam, but still fair. Easier to reach for my by car than Amsterdam shops, so will visit again.
Decent selection. You can even find some rare ales when lucky. Good atmosphere, pleasant setup. There’s enough space to walk around and often a pleasant smell of beer being brewed. :) The crew is helpfull when you have questions.

Decent selection. They categorize their beers not by country or brewery, but by style, which is not familiar (at least not as far as i’ve seen). Most of the Schans brews are available, some nice gueuzes.
Situated next to (and probably attached to) the brewery, this is a nice shop with a decent selection, but as mentioned, expensive. Opening times are limited to say the least, they only open their doors on 3 days a week...
