If you’re a beer lover visiting Amsterdam, check this place out. Great list of Dutch beers and staff were friendly to tourists. We grabbed a couple drinks here before heading to a dinner reservation at another restaurant.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
