Stopped here on my European Beer-cation. As someone mentioned before, the essence of this place is a classy, clean bar with ample seating and a knowledgeable bartender. Once we asked about the house and local beers he opened right up and was discussing how American microbrew culture has come to Amsterdam and he had us tasting many selections. The menu is very expansive and I felt very unusual in that I was not familiar with the all Dutch names. I'm a noob again! I wish I spent more time here and also went to the sister location - BeerTemple. Well, I do know I will be back in Amsterdam - I'd like to learn more about their own scene as well as a little of the language itself.

This bar is 100% Dutch beer. And it’s amazing. We hung out here multiple times during our short stay. The bartenders we met were wonderful people. One of them remembered my partner from his visit a few months earlier.
One gripe I had (and don't let this detract you at all from coming here): slow service. I’m an impatient American, so sometimes I’m overly picky about service that is actually not slow. However, waiting a half hour to be able to get the bartender's attention, finally being able to tell him what I want, and then after 10 more minutes of him not pouring the single beer I ordered, we left. This was on a relatively slow Monday night, but there was only one bartender and he couldn’t handle the crowd. It was an isolated incident, though, and normally the service is fine (it was definitely satisfactory every other time we were there). I walked to Beer Temple, so I guess they got my money anyways. Oh well. They’re nice people.

I got the chance to celebrate Zwanze day in Amsterdam this year. Having spent afternoons, and nights in the Beertemple I decided to change it up and hit their sister bar, Arendsnest with a friend. This was a brilliant decision. Arendsnest overlooks one of Amsterdam's canals off a quiet street about a 15 minute walk from the Beertemple. The beer selection is primarily Dutch craft beer with some Danish brews mixed in for kicks. The atmosphere is laid back, the bar is beautifully appointed and light. A complete 180 from the decor of the Temple. The bartenders are friendly, prompt, and very helpful. If you ever happen to find yourself in Amsterdam, this is a MUST for any beer lover.

Every time I visit Amsterdam, I make sure I visit The Heron's Nest. They strive to carry every Dutch beer, and their vintage list is terrific. I've been a few times and the service and selection have been consistently terrific. I had a vintage bottle of a strange Dutch beer called Kasparus Patrix here after another patron said he drank too many of them the previous night and missed his flight home. Obviously I had to try it, and I loved it. I can't think of another bar in The Netherlands that would even have such a beer...well worth the trip.

In de Wildeman may be the classic Amsterdam beer bar, but Arendsnest is the ultimate place to visit if you're looking for Dutch beer. The interior is brightly lit with light colored wood panels around. A long bar can comfortably seat at least a dozen as well as the taps which are pouring. If you're looking for a selection of the taps for the day, look behind you and you'll find a chalkboard which posts the 30 taps of all Dutch beer (brands including Christoffe, De 7 Deugden, Durts & Laurent). Sure, you could ask for a bottle list, but if you're from out of town, most of the taps you won't be familiar with.
Another aspect which surprised me besides the selection was the service. Two bartenders behind the bar, but both were not only keeping up with orders, but the one who dealt with me was extremely knowledgeable about what was pouring, as well as a recommendation for a cheese plate. He also explained why Arendsnest prefers, in most cases, to use their own custom glassware versus using the brewery's glassware.
Without a doubt, the "eagle's nest" is a must-stop in the city.

Vibe: This is a small bar located on the upscale Herengracht, which doesn't have many bars or restaurants located along the canal and is away from the tourist areas. The place seemed to have an even balance between locals and visitors. Bartenders behind the copper bar were arrived in matching. suit-like uniforms.
Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware such as goblets, snifters and brewery-specific glasses. Paper coasters were fitted on the base of the glass.
Service: Service was a little slow and unhurried, but normal compared to European standards.
Selection: The bar prides itself in only serving Dutch beer on draught and has 30 such taps as well as a large selection of bottled beers. Flight of three decent sized glasses are also available for €7,50 and served on a placemat with the names of the beers written on them.

Visited a couple of times in September 2012. I don't like to be repetitive but others have nailed the place in their reviews. I think we had the same ravenhaired bartender who did indeed handle it all by herself, tables, bar and she was quite fetching I might add. The atmosphere was pleasant enough, I longed for a view of Herengracht but they only have a couple of tables overlooking the gentelman's canal, otherwise very good and comfortably pleasant. I am impressed by their fresh draft offerings with more than adequate descriptions of the beers. Did I mention that the bartender was professional and easy to talk to and look at? Food wise I recomment the peppered aged gouda plate as a nice side for the beers. I may be oversold on the Jopen's Ongelvige Thomas, but it is my benchmark for overall European beer taste and flavor. Back to 't Arendsnest, it is not hard to find when you are in Amsterdam and if you are looking for a Dutch beer experience you can do no better, though Wildman and de Zotte offer better overall selections, Arendsnest is a must do. We met a few good folks who were returning from the Munich Octoberfest and their overall impressions were solidly positive.
