Though Amsterdam is one of those cities where finding intoxicating products should be easier than practically anywhere else, sometimes travelers want to partake in something that'd be hard to find where they're from. That being the case, this guide from Men's Journal lists some great spots around the city to find remarkable craft beers.

Amsterdam may be more associated with Amstel, Heineken and, well, other types of highs, but the city's lesser-known, regionally produced craft beer should not be missed. While one of its microbreweries has been around for two decades now, others have opened in just the past two years – and there's no shortage of impressive beer bars that showcase small-scale Dutch brewers. "There are approximately 150 breweries in the Netherlands, of which there are 140 craft brewers," says Nico Lammers, public-relations coordinator for PINT (Promotie Informatie Traditioneel Bier), a nonprofit Dutch beer association. "The number of breweries has grown rapidly in the last few years and is still growing."
