One of the best beer bars in the Netherlands. They have a very nice selection of Belgian and especially Dutch beers. This is a good place to get some of the Dutch start up beers in Amsterdam.

Got here at noon opening time on a late December afternoon, staff weren’t quite ready for customers yet but treated us well. Phenomenal selection both on tap and in bottles; by the time I had drunk all the "ooh, never seen that on tap" beers it was time to go. Reasonably priced good pub food for lunch, and the fries ("in beef tallow" like McDonald’s used to when their fries were good) were great.
Very nice beer place a 10 minutes walk from the Vang Gogh museum. A good dreft selection, including their own especially made brew. Very strong Belgian bottle selection. Nice food and athmosphere. Separate room for smokers and some outdoor seating. Great place
Signposted to this bar having discovered Cafe Gollem in Raamsteeg is temporarily closed. Welcoming proeflokaal on the Overtoom, offering a good range of mainly Belgian beers on tap and bottle. Seventies music plays in the background, whilst drinkers enjoy the beer range and what reads like good food from the kitchen behind where, incidentally, the staff are allowed to enjoy a drink. There were some very friendly locals and drinkers here, including a girl who spoke the best English I have heard in Holland. Worth a visit. Tram No 1 will take you there from the centraal Station or the Leidseplein. Do visit!
Re-rated after visit on Fri 16th March 2012. Excellent and continuing with its great beer range and lively buzz. Keeps my recommendation!
Stopped in here on a busy afternoon. There was nowhere to sit at the bar, but we did find a table just behind the bar seats to sit. Lot’s of wood and copper with an old-time feel to it. Brought me back to the days of old, but with better beer, I’m sure. Within just a short time of sitting, we had a waitress stop and ask us what we would like. I ordered a Cantillon Gueuze and it came with the Cantillon tumbler. This was my first experience having that happen, and it was really cool. Pricing was pretty good, too. Seven euros for the beer and we were out the door. I saw those bottles priced higher in shops later on in the trip. They were tourist shops, but the point is still valid. I definitely recommend if you are going to be in the area. One of my favorite stops in Amsterdam.
