I paid my most recent visit here on 19th March 2009. Still going string and attracting a loyal clientele of regulars, beer enthusiasts/beer-tourists and regular returnees from outside Holland. I liked the eccentric nature of this bar, and the friendly but businesslike service. Sometimes long queues form. In recent years they have knocked a wall down to form an extension to the indoor drinking area. Those of you interested in such things may like to know the "egg" logo of the brewery is a pun on "ei" the Dutch for "egg" and "IJ" the name of the river beside the brewpub. Both words are pronounced like "eye". Thus, IJwit = eggwhite; PassIJ = easter egg, etc. This is a mecca to which I pay homage each time I visit Amsterdam, and is one of my favourite brewpubs in the city.

Fun free tour (fridays at four). OK beers. I liked the atmosphere. The place was full of locals enjoying a beginning-of-weekend beer.

Fine beers, simple pub and brewery, avarage friendly stuff. The collection of the bottles is funny, but the ambience is poor. The selection is only the tap beers, they have one bottled called natte. You can buy the beers at the Cracked Cattle.

Took the excellent, free brewery tour (fridays at 4 pm), and had a couple pf their draught beers (no, the Vlo is not sold in here!). They werenít diacetyl bombs like Iíd been warned, but quite ok. Not as good as in bottle, though. The bar is very simplistic, but there are hundreds of old (empty) beer bottles on the walls - a gem for collectors. The windmill is beautiful, too. The only glitch was when I ordered a plate of salami and cheese: the waitress just took the cheese cubes and salami slices from the fridge with her bare hands after handling loads of money and who knows what else. Convenient, but not very hygienic, IMO. The cheese was very good, but the salami had maybe 60% fat, and very little meat. Anyway, we left there happy - so this is just minor whining. A must see in Amsterdam.

A 5 minute walk from my appartment. I often invite my friends over from my hometown to enjoy the IJ-beers, so everytime I visited the place I had a great time. The place itself is very shabby, located in an old bathing house, and it shows. The terrace underneath the windmill is very nice and pittoresque btw. Inside is packed everytime, but if you come in early you might be able to capture a table. Quality of the taps is not always top-notch (butter/acid), but prices are low and overall the beers are excellent. Good cheese and saucages as food.

Maybe the shabbiest, dirtiest brewpub Ive ever visited in any country... but I liked that about it. The place isnít putting on airs here. Itís simply giving you a room in which to drink its fine beers. We had íem all but our favorite by far was the zippy Plzen, freshly hoppy and refreshing. All the beers were in top condition, possibly nitrogenated based on creamy head and mouthfeel. Bar girls were quick and friendly. Packed to the gills with locals and a few tourists. Really looking forward to coming back someday for a proper session.

Love this place. Incredible beer from a tiny windmill. All of their offerings are good, but the Zatte is exceptional, a triple with a smooth drinkability that is not associated with such big beer. They also have a very clean Wit beer, coriander, and wheat flavors, that go good on the rare hot days in Aídam. Never had a problem with the smoke or the service, one whole side of the building opens to a great lil beergarden. and there is at least 2 people behind the bar when I have visited. Pleasantly located outside the rings of the city, but close enough to walk from Centraal. The only thing I donít like about the place is the limited hours.

Lovely little brewpub that was just down the road from where I was staying, and a nice step away from the hustle and bustle of life in Amsterdam. Old lady behind the bar was very helpful. Pub was full of locals by the time we left, a little smoky, but it all adds to the ambiance. Quite a selection, few more on bottle too. Bit rough around the edges, but I liked that. All in all nice pub with some great ales.
