Our favorite beer cafes in Amsterdam

When talking about the best beer cafes in Amsterdam everyone has their own favorites. Therefore, we can’t give you just one must-visit, but we do like to try. At the back of the Beurs van Berlage, in the heart of Amsterdam, you will find the former city tax house. Today it houses café-brasserie De Heffer, where several bars are located, including a traditional old Dutch bar and a tasting room. Several local and special beers are served here and the cuisine is international. It is the perfect place to sit down after a day in the city center. At the van Gogh Café, they serve 15 types of beer! This bar is situated close to central station and is the perfect watering (eh, beer?) hole for people hopping on, or getting of a canal cruise. Beer specialist De Biertuin has the perfect beer café formula. Good food, great beers and two great locations, one in the east of the city and one in the city center. For beer lovers this actually is a must-visit as they will always serve a beer that you love. In Amsterdam East their terrace also made it to our best heated terraces list, meaning that you can sit outside and enjoy your beer whatever the time of year!

Whatever café you choose for a drink, we hope you can find what you are looking for in our selection of favorite beer cafés in Amsterdam.
