A cozy little place with a nice seat by the window. I had to squeeze past other patrons to find a seat, but once there, it was within an arm’s distance of the bar and bartender. A good selection of Belgians which is what I wanted. My only disappointment was that the Westvleteren XII that was listed on the board was not available. Even this close to the source, I guess that one is hard to come by. Nonetheless, the bartender had other excellent similar beers to recommend. Friendly service. English-speaking. Worth coming back to.
Visited in the evening, was quite crowded, had trouble finding the seat. Cozy interior. Service was very good. 15 taps, nothing too interesting, some new ticks, but mostly usual suspects. Solid selection of bottles, an interesting bottle here or there. Worth visiting for the ambiance, not so much for new and/or rare beers.

Good variety of Belgian and local beers. I was there in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2013. It is my tradition when I arrive to Amsterdam.
Another small and cramped craft beer bar in Amsterdam. When I entered the bar I needed a couple of minutes before I could read the tap list due to condensation on glasses. There is a sitting area up a few steps on a mezzanine, where we managed to squeeze in six more people. Indeed a charming place! Decent beer selection and a flight is 4 x 15 cl for€ 9.25. Attentive and nice service. Male drunkards, be aware! The staircase down to the loo is extremely steep, actually more like a ladder! And when you have unleashed the Salmon, some may have a problem with the elevated toilet bowl. Dwarfs will face a serious problem! I enjoyed my stay. A fun experience.

Visité en octobre 2013. Endroit minuscule (qu’est-ce qui ne l’est pas au cœur d’Amsterdam) dans un petite ruelle. L’intérieur est à la fois superbe et déconcertante. On a peine à croire qu’on ait réussi à mettre autant de tables et de bancs dans cette superficie. Aller au toilette est un défi en soi avec son escalier (échelle) à 80 degrés. Bonne sélection de bières du pays et quelques belges. Bon service également et prix abordables. Belle place si on n’est pas trop claustrophobe.
Visited late evening, not as crowded as I expected but still plenty of people. Wooden interior, big bar that looks good to sit around, some tables on the back. I don’t remember the tap list but it was nothing interesting, otherwise I’d remember I guess. Bottle list was nothing special either, mostly belgian beers and some local dutch ones, I had their own beer here plus another from a bottle, good atmosphere, too much light though. Prices on the high side.
