I went to Amsterdam this last weekend to meet by brother and...................I plead the fifth.

One of our goals was to find good beer and we it the jackpot. Checkout the selection at my new favorite pub.

..

Sadly they didn't have any Westvleteren but we tried all the other Trappist beers and then some. Defiantly worth a repeat trip.

The sad thing is that I almost went in there last I was in Amsterdam but then ended up somewhere else. Definitely next time.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

MMMMM they have Orval, guillotine, delerium tremens (one of my favourites ever!), la chouffe and mc chouffe, kasteel and lucifer. Oh and of course Palm Alcohol Free (HA!)

The only other super Belgian I've had they seem to be missing is Barbar..... also a really nice beer.

Are you allowed to buy bottles and take them with you from that pub?

Not sure I didn't try, but I don't see why not.

Where is that place? It looks familiar. I've been there twice, and one time we had an AWESOME pub crawl.

Not sure of the address, but it was at the beginning of the street with all the Asian food somewhat near the train station and "happyland".

Cheesfood in Amsterdam…who would have thought.

I forgot to mention that I tried my first Lambic there. I refuse no beer, but holy crap that must be an aquired taste. Anyone actually enjoy Lambics?

Interesting I went to Het Elfde Gabod in Antwerpen. Full of all kinds of religious statues. Great beer list as well. I've never been to the one in Amsterdam.

I love Lambics! Particularly Cantillon, Frank Boon and Drie Fontainen. I prefer the Gueuze over the fruit Lambics.

Great tip!
I've been to Amsterdam a good few times now and absolutely love my times spent there!!!

A great brown cafe featuring Belgians etc. to check out is:

http://www.cafegollem.nl/default_EN.asp


One of my favorite carryout places in Amsterdam is:

http://www.debierkoning.nl/

The site is in Dutch, but you can navigate about easy enough to get an idea.
You can also click the E Flag for a small English description.

Oh my I cannot wait to get back there!!
