Nice brewpub somewhat off the beaten track but nice visiting because the beer is great - especially the Flo - and one of only a few Aídam-based brewers. Bonus points for being in a windmill.

Lots of old beer bottles on the wall (more than 1000), some old and some new white tiles, old kitchen tables, quite decrepit interior overall. You have to order at the bar, but there was only one pissed waitress. Iíve been there for more than 2 hours and waitress didnít smile, not even once. Behind glass door are brewing equipment with big beer tanks. Except the waitress very nice place.

Really nice spot with great beers and a nice staff. A bit crowded both times I went, but worth it, especially if the patio is available. The atmosphere outdoors canĎt be beat.

I really enjoyed my stop here. Itís a bit out of the way, but itís such a cool little place. Itís a smallish building at the base of a massive windmill right on the river. We had great service from the young lady working behind the bar. It was pretty slow because it had just opened, but the people in there seemed like regulars/locals. They didnít have a ton of beer available, but I really dig this breweryís beers. If you have the opportunity to get out of the tourist area for a while I definitely recommend it.

A fair walk out of Amsterdamís very centre, but a friendly, very laid-back place. Watch for the limited opening hours though. They had 6 beers on draught when I was there, but unfortunately not the Vlo which I had to get a bottle from in a store as they donít sell any at the brewery. Still, I considered it a nice experience, the beers are very solid and great to try from the tap: as fresh as it gets. Minimalist decoration, only a bar, picnic tables and a bottle collection. A nice place where time flows and locals seem to have a good time rather than tourists. Perhaps not worth the detour if you donít have a couple of days in Amsterdam though.

Not the easiest place to find, but the vibe is electric and young. Upside to being of the beaten path is there are not many tourists. If you hate smoke, either hold your breath or donít go. This place is a blast.

Made two bike trips out to Brouwerij ít IJ. It really canít be beat in terms of ambiance. The service was always very nice, especially considering how busy they are. Not a lot of tourists, mostly locals. Tasty house beers. A special place.

If you like your beer straight from the fermenting vessels youíll love this place. I prefer beer that been allowed to fully ferment so I stick to the bottles. To try draft Ij beers at their best, go Onder de Ooievaar or In de Wildeman.

Take the # 22 bus from the Central Station. The stop is across the street. Very much a commoner place. A bit rugged and unkept. I arrived at 3ish and found only a few locals. Some backpacker/hippies came in and another tourist (who also came to this place specifically) A tour bus stopped for about 5 min and a few came in a took pictures. The collection of old dusty beer bottles around the walls in impressive, as the old windmill. They only had four of there beers on tap, and two in bottles. While not a wheat beer person by far, Iíd recommend the Whit beer.

Yeah itís in a windwill, and yeah thatís cool, but what I really liked about this place was that we were practically the only English speakers visiting. I like to find the places where the locals drink, and this one is damn near close. Iím sure they get thier share of tourists, but not nearly as many as the places in the Red Light District. Inside the taproom thereís a medium sized bar, and ample seating along the windows, affording a comfortable view of bike and automobile traffic outside. The brewery is a bit of a walk from central Aídam, but since itís along ít Ij river itís a pretty nice walk. Inside there are hundreds of beer bottles lining the walls, and the more common brewania decor is there as well. On tap was about 5 beers, with a couple more offered in bottles. I had to buy a shirt since it had both an ostrich and a windmill on it. Great place to drink.
