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.

Located just outside the center of Amsterdam, still easy to find, search for the big Molen. Good weather caused to open the terrace and sitting outside with a Struis and a sheep cheese form the IJ brewery made it very nice. Selection are only the IJ beers and not all are available. Interior looks good, with a very nice selection of empty bottles throughout the place. All by all a nice place, especially with good weather to sit outside.

Ďt IJ brewery sits by a windmill in the eastern part of Amsterdam, set back from a busy crossroads, and within easy walking distance from the city centre on a sunny Sunday at the beginning of April. Thereís a large outdoor seating area, which was quite busy when we arrived mid-afternoon after visiting the interesting resistance museum en route.
Inside thereís an L-shaped tasting room framed by the bar, with lots of standing room but not many tables. Itís quite basic, half tiled in white, with an array of empty bottles from just about every brewery I could name on narrow shelves above. The symbol of the brewery is an ostrich and this theme is carried through to the broken ostrich egg lampshades.
There was a good range of IJ beers available Ė Plzen (not actually a pilzen), Natte, Ijwit, Zatte, Columbus, Struis (ostriches again!) and a seasonal (Paasij) on tap, all priced between E1.90 and E2.50; bottles at E2.90; plus fruit juice, mineral water and cheese. The recommended local soft cheese, made from sheepís milk and a bit like Camembert, was good but at E5 for a small round not as reasonably priced as the beers.
The bar staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, even when faced with an extremely busy bar after the brewery tour finished. Unfortunately we missed it but thereís a free tour at 1600 on Sundays and Fridays. Oh, and when we were there was a book on sale celebrating 25 years of the brewery.
