Best Local Beer Bars

Bikes, Beers, and Bitterballen.jpg

There’s a lot of great new places popping up in Amsterdam these days. Here are just a few of my favorite in no particular order.

Proeflokaal Arendsnest - Herengracht 90 -

Peter Arend (where the name comes from) Started this place in 2000 - kicking off the beer craze which would come to Amsterdam. Still one of my favorite go-to’s to impress guests it boast 52 only Dutch beers on tap and more than 100 by the bottle.

De Prael - Oudezijds Armsteeg 26 -

Is both a brewery and social workplace. This means that they are part of a system that helps people get back to work after various hardships. They make the beer on location but have also expanded to a second location in the city and other cities too. Wednesday nights they host a bingo evening which is always packed, so get there early or make a reservation on their site!
