Well away from the more touristy bars and streets, this Dutch gem should be sought out by any beer lover, the stroll along the waters edge from Central Station will do you good and build up your thirst as well. However, check the opening times first, normal hours they are not. Friendly staff add to its appeal, a full afternoon drinking, with no plans for the evening is the best way to attack this place. Their own beers should all be tried, they are tasty and clean, on the most part, a good selection for such a small brewery with such a small windmill!

Nice and good-sized location, with young crowd filling the inside and also the outside (in sunny days). The right place for tasting a good beer while meeting new people.

A bit outside the centre but in a great location, with a tasting room inside and a biergarten-like terrace on the outside. Always very busy, even when coming early en even outside when it cold or raining! Selection includes their own beers on tap, of course, and a sampler. All for fair prices. Some cheese and sausage and stuff available which was tasty but not amazing, and served as if they rather not sell food at all. Staff is a bit uninterested. Overall a fun place to drink their great beers, but very crowded, so watch their opening hours closely.

We went there early and it was allready full of people. The wheater was ok, so we sat outside. Inside looks great, a bit spartan but it suits the brewery well. Loads and loads and loads of empty beer bottles on the wall, can imagine the guyís liver who drank them all. Anyway, some barfood available, like cheese and sauceage. Mostly IJ beers available, as well as some good Belgian and American brews. Great place, love to go there again.

Quite big but very crowdy brewpub. Lots of IJ brews on tap as well as some bottles.

Great beer, much of which is only now being appreciated as they expand into mainstream grocery stores, and a scenic location.

Love this place. Bit sparten inside, but fantastic location under the windmill. Well worth the trek from the centrum. Possibly the best value beers in town(2.0-2.8 Euros). Best to arrive early as it gets very busy.

Itís love or hate with the IJ Brouwerij, both for the place as for their beers. Considering there are a few IJ beers I really like, I guess it is love on the end. The brewpub has an outspoken no-nonsense character, which not everyone might like, service means queing with the hodgepodge of tourists, locals, freaks, yuppies and whoelse. Nice!

Bit windy for the terrace so we chose to sit inside. The white tiles give it a clean feel and is a nice blink to the old bath house this used to be in the old days, while the wooden benches and the old bottles make a beer head feel rather at home.
Service is OK, you have to go, order and collect your own beer at the bar, canít pay by card (so bring cash) but extra points given because the bartender came to our table and returned the (considerable) change one of our company forgot to collect.
Selection is on the small side, their own beers (not all) and besides beer there is only very limited choice. Nothing hot (tea/coffee) which was a miss for some in our company.
Food is quite basic, just snacks, but all of high quality.
