True beer aficionados, take note! Proeflokaal Arendsnest stands out among its many competitors by offering at least one beer from each brewery in The Netherlands. You can also find many aged varieties here, which are rather unusual in Amsterdam. The pub itself is long and narrow in the typical style, and offers bar stools as well as tables in the back. If you want to learn more about the beers you are sampling, sit at the bar and chat up the owner, who is incredibly knowledgeable about his craft.
In de Wildeman may just be the best beer bar in Amsterdam. It is housed in an old distillery from 1690 just off the Nieuwezijds Kolk. The clientele consists of beer lovers who come from all over the world. Roughly 18 draught beers are available at any given time, along with around 150 bottled beers. Of course, the beers are changed regularly to avoid boredom and there are special themed weeks in which certain beers are celebrated, so there's always something new to sample.
This charming cafe in the De Jordaan district offers a wide range of drinks and food in a comfortable setting. The interior is dark and roomy, with several tables and bar stools arranged on a checkered floor. There is also space on a floating platform outside that is ideal during nice weather. In addition to the wide selection of beers, wines, coffees, and teas, the cafe has a full menu of snacks. You can choose from soups, salads or sandwiches to go with your drink.
Brouwerij is not really your ordinary pub and brewery. Only house-brewed beers are tapped here or sold in bottles. The furniture consists of bare wooden seats and tables next to a simple bar in this former municipal bathhouse. On the large terrace you will find people scattered out, sitting on the ground as well as the tables and chairs. Tours are available as well.
Enjoy the fine selection of beers at de Biertuin. This popular pub has a beautiful beer garden where you can unwind and relax with friends.
