The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to this location specifically because they list two types of smoked beers on their web site, and we really enjoy this flavor. Unfortunately the web site is out of date and they haven't served smoked beers like a rauchbier for over a year, according to the server. We did find a nice Belgian tripel and enjoyed watching the world go by.

This place has far too many chilren in it. Serious beer place yet tables propped up with families with kids drinking fizzy drinks. Keep kids out of your pub so serious ale lovers can actually sit down. Place is already tight on seating. Beer & food is good but management need to make a choice here if they want to continue it being an offshoot of a wacky warehouse.

Stunning selection of wonderful beers, fantastic staff and quite simply it's a brilliant bar. I could happily spend hours in here drinking the world to rites. Hopefully I'll be back there again soon.

Possibly the best bar in Amsterdam, certainly the largest range of Dutch beers. 50 taps and large bottle/ can selection. Do this, De Wildeman and Beer Temple for a great night out.

The full name is Nederlands Biercafe ‘t Arendsnest, and this bar is not to be missed by any beer tourist. The Dutch are brewing creative beer but little of it is exported. More than any other bar in Amsterdam, this is the place to find rare Dutch beers. They do have a few imports, but stick to the local products because it is hard to find them anywhere else in Amsterdam.

Arendsnest is located on a canal in the quiet Western part of the city, and like the neighborhood outside, the bar inside is quiet and relaxed.

No crowd on a midweek evening. No food was available. This is not a place for anyone looking for a party but a bar to try high quality Dutch beers with limited distribution. Prices are average. If you only go to one beer bar in Amsterdam, this should be it. Popular with locals and with travelers.

Great cozy place with a lovely ambience. Nice bartenders. A bit expensive but its worth to try for the craft beers they have.

The beer in this bar is great, with beautiful copper taps etc. I like the concept, but I went here a few weeks ago and the barman was horrible. He made snide remarks and was rude. We left because of him. A shame.

If you’re a beer lover visiting Amsterdam, check this place out. Great list of Dutch beers and staff were friendly to tourists. We grabbed a couple drinks here before heading to a dinner reservation at another restaurant.
