Seven Awesome Beer Spots To Check Out At ISE In Amsterdam (That Aren’t Heineken or Amstel)

Posted by Michael Maniscalco in Blog. No Comments

8th February

We wrote a popular blog post in for CEDIA called Five Breweries To See While You Are in Denver At CEDIA Expo. Given its success and our awesome Amsterdam beer experience in the past we’ve decided to write a similar post for ISE 2015!   So take some time to stop and see ihiji at stand #10-N114 (co-exhibiting with Control4) then hit the town in the evening to enjoy one of these excellent establishments.

We’re craft beer enthusiasts and so have omitted the behemoth Heineken Amstel brewery from this list. These beer bars, breweries and bottle shops are all very unique with some real local charm.

Herengracht 90
Amsterdam, 1015 BS

This is a really cool classic bar that serves only Dutch beer. The staff is very knowledgable, people are friendly and beer is fantastic. The relaxing atmosphere makes this my top pick for grabbing a pint.
