So next friday I'm off to Amsterdam (for the first time) for my brothers stag party with 11 of his friends. We're staying near the Van Gogh museum.

Few questions:

1) What's the local beer or good beers to try while I'm there?
2) Where are some good places to go? Bars, pubs, clubs, fun places etc.
3) What times do places (bars/clubs etc) tend to close?
4) What's the red light district actually really like?
