    Only Dutch craft beer, 30 on tap and around 100 bottled. Great selection of beers from Brouwerij De Molen. Go check the blackboards and make your choice. Beers on tap also served in 15cl tasters.

    Really the best beer bar that I know so far in Amsterdam. Regarding the choice: of course La Trappe, De Molen and Skuumkoppe. Also order the old cheese as a side dish and finish with a shot of jenever

    Best pub on the Herengracht Canal, also one of the priciest, but worth it. Incredible selection of local Dutch microbrews, great location in Jordaan with outdoor seating and nice evening crowd.

    Great atmosphere with a very wide selection of Dutch only craft beers. More seating down stairs. Start here and drink at the owner's other 3 bars in town for a free shirt (they have flyers explaining)

    While this bar may be more filled with tourists than locals, I think it has possibly the most complete list of Dutch Craft Beers in the city. Highly recommend if you want to get a feel for the scene.
