Wins the ’surprise on the upside’ award for Amsterdam bars. Crozy lay out and not unlike Craft & Draft in this respect. Close to 30 taps with quality and local rep very obvious. Nice friendly vibe. I’m very impressed and a great example of what can be done in small spaces (I hadn’t been to Copenhagen at this stage!). Makes the ’must visit’ list with ease and a much more visitor friendly location when compared to Craft & Draft and a few others.

Visited during Cloudwater and Kees tap takeover on a Friday evening. Place is small but wasn’t full, easily accessible. Beer selection is excellent, food is also good. Stuff is friendly and professional. Recommended if need a proper dinner with quality beer.
Another small craft beer bar in Amsterdam. I aimed for a bar counter location, my favourite spot! Friendly service and a talkative blond, young female barmaid made my visit pleasant. You buggers, don’t get dirty thoughts now! I enjoyed great beers from Oedipus, Pampus, Bird Brewery, Jopen and finally I found Chouffe Bok 6666. The latter is Belgian, but I did an exception in my Dutch craft beer journey. All beers served as 15 cl on request. (Visited November 19th 2016)
Bezocht op ene zaterdagavond in October 2016. Was er best rustig bediening vriendelijk maar wel afstandelijk. Bieren zijn interessant en betaalbaar, met een diversiteit aan stijlen en brouwers, toch miste ik een mooie stout of porter. Eten was voor het geld en de locatie gewoon goed. Kom hier graag een keer terug
Visited september 2016. As in other Morebeer establishments, the hoppy beers are dead, but the selection is good nevertheless. The major disappointment here was the food, which is mediocre at best, but in some cases it’s just awful. The salad and fries were great though!
Third place visited the 24th September 2016 during the MoreBeer pub crawl. On a quiet street, this place is really small. Modern ambiance inside. Good beer selection. Staff is friendly. Food is good but really expensive. I highly recommend you to eat somewhere else! For sure the worst place during the pub crawl!
Bit of a walk from the center but an agreeable tram ride. Located in a very quite & bit deserted almost alley-like street. Very quite, we sat outside. Service was friendly & helpful. Good amount of taps, some new Jopen beers but more than just Jopen beers. Tap selection was pretty interesting & good. Place isn’t very big but big enough. Prices are agreeable for Amsterdam. I didn’t try the food. Overall I liked it, nice selection, some new beers for sure & a quite place. Not bad at all.
Small bar on a quiet street just off the hustle and bustle (and a tram route, so it’s easily reachable). Inside is just a few bar tables, and then there are half a dozen or so tables out on the sidewalk. Fairly plain interior. Friendly staff. Decent selection. I would return to try the food.
Visited last month when still called Jopen Proeflokaal. Small bar, quiet and clean looking. Little terrace out front, decent tap list with some locals and international beer, even a retired beer from Jopen themselves. Close to the Melkweg where I went before. Nice!
Near the Leidseplein, this cozy taproom has a short bar with 6 stools facing around 30 taps, 10 of which dispense guest beers. There are several tables to seat 30 or so additional guests. This is a friendly place where the barkeep and the customers will engage in conversation about beer or anything else of interest. The food menu looks good, but I had just eaten before I arrived. There is also a cold case containing quite a few bottles. They serve a wide range of Jopen beers here.
