Great selection, a little pricey but comparable with other good beer bars in the city. Helpful staff who will let you try beers before you buy. Recommend sitting at the bar so you can watch all the action and appreciate how smoothly it all runs....More

The bar is nice on the inside and they also have outside seating when the sun is out. Beer wasn’t bad, just coming from Belgium that beer was hard to beat in Brussels.

Went here for a coffee at the end of the morning: not possible. Options are beers (many) and soda. We tried two beers which we nice, however, the choice is so large it is worth another visit.

Searched out a handful of beer lovers bars in Amsterdam and this was the best. Huge range on tap including local brews. Also beers and snacks (didn't try these). Friendly service and seating inside and out. I will return when next in Amsterdam.
