Travlr  (2954) Charlotte , North Carolina | June 24, 2016
Visited during a Carnevale Brettanomyces event. Beers were being served on the sidewalk, which got very crowded very quickly. You had to buy tickets for the beers, and the ticket seller was not moving swiftly, so it was a big bottleneck and didn’t help the crowds any. So they need to work on their events. But the bottle shop is - overwhelming. Massive selection on two levels. I didn’t know where to start. With no wifi, though, I REALLY didn’t know where to start. Still, it was the best bottle shop of the trip by far, and is not likely to be rivaled. Reasonable prices. A must stop while in Amsterdam.

Fantastic selection in a small shop purely dedicated to good beer. The selected of Dutch beer is tops here, with a number of quality Belgian and German bottles as well. What else can I say? You should visit this store, but also be sure to visit Cracked Kettle, which I found to be even better. It wasn’t the mecca I was expecting, but certainly it’s a place not to miss while in Amsterdam.

Visited September 2012.

Wow, this is a touristy stop. Its setup to optimize traffic. You enter and wander around a narrow walk way and end up at the register. If you want to stop and look at something people end up having to squeeze by you. They do have a bit of everything though, albeit at a high price. 3 Fonteinen and Cantillon were present. I’ve heard stories of Westvleteren showing up as well. Plenty of US-made beers too. We grabbed some obscure items (I got a Roodebol that I ended up ordering again at Kulminator two days later) and took off for some more brewery hopping but not before spending a bit of money. I can’t comment on the service since I was mostly just browsing and there was a line of people behind me.

Really the only beer shop you need to hit in Amsterdam. Tons of beers from all over Europe and a fair amount of stuff from the US as well. Prices are good. The place is really cramped, though, so don’t plan on bringing any big bags inside.

Excellent beer shop a stone’s throw from Beer Temple. A selection of local Dutch brews I had not seen elsewhere. Many Belgian and US bottles. A small selection of vintage too. Glassware available. Busy staff.

De Bierkonig is situated very centrally in a street off Dam Square. It’s not large but it fits a tremendous selection of high quality beers into the small area at the front and up a short set of wooden steps to a platform area. They’re arranged by country and I defy anyone to find it hard to fill their basket here. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Fin  (1149) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | June 22, 2009
Only got to this Beer Shop in Amsterdam, unfortunately I never made the Cracked Kettle, though I would struggle to see how this could possible be beaten on the staggering choice, rare stuff and reasonable prices. I concentrated on mostly Dutch beers from De Molen but I also got a few from Mikkeller but I was limited on what I could carry as I was situated on a campsite out of town. Very friendly staff, who suggested De Wildeman and ’T Arendsnest bars as ’got to go to’ places. Visited here twice but if I lived in Amsterdam I would never be out of this place. One of the best speciality beers shops I’ve ever visited.

Definitely a first class bottle shop in terms of selection. There is a split stairway in the back, upstairs are a series of beers from nearby countries, downstairs is smaller and focused on Belgian, mostly lambic. Selection is indeed excellent, but organization is a bit of a challenge; there is some clutter and beers are shelved from the floor to the ceiling. They definitely had a few nice things, but no whales were slayed.

One of the best beer shops I have ever been in. Really, I was just thrilled to spend time in here. Prices are pretty damn fair and the selection is unreal. I bought so much beer here. Can’t wait to return.
