The wall of beer is something awe inspiring when you first see it, so much choice & quality! Been twice now and spent both evenings having a great time enjoying the really chilled atmosphere very close to busier areas. Staff were almost horizontal they were so relaxed - perfect vibe. If you love your beer, this place is a must.

One of the smallest pubs in Amsterdam, awesome setup, great beerlist, nice bartenders and good cheeseplatter. Really nice oasis in the touristy part of Amsterdam. Nice people and a good vibe!

A wide selection of craft beers. However, most of them come in bottles. The bar is just off Leidseplein, quite small

The staff is very friendly and the beer selection is fantastic! A great local getaway - lots of places in the city are too touristy but this place feels very authentic. A must visit!

This place has a huge selection of bottled and draught beers, from all over Europe, well worth a visit, and it's in a street with lots of restaurants as well. Certainly a mecca for the serious beer drinker paying a visit to Amsterdam

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
