Took the tour but felt ripped off and did not stay for the three beers. It was basically an hour or so of my life that I will not bet back as there are better places in the city to visit for beer.

If your idea of a must-see in terms of beer in Amsterdam is visiting this place, then you know nothing about Amsterdam. A stain on this cityís great brewing tradition.

This was only a few blocks from my hotel so thought I would drop in. A tourist site for sure. I saw many places advertising the "Heinekien Experience". For 16 or 18 Euros (depending on where you purchase tickets), you get a tour of the brewery, three beers, and a glass. Oh, the brewery doesnít really brew anymore. Not worth the price of admission.

Visited a couple of times in my student days. Loved it then, because entry was only Ä1,- (not Ä10, like it is now), and drinking was free after the tour. Unlimited Heineken for an hour or so, if you were lucky enough. Nowadays, tour is as said no longer free, drinking is limited to 3 beers, tour is no longer guided I think. However, nice touristy experience, nice to see the history of Hollands largest brewer. The brewery itself has not been active for a long time though.

Visited September 2012.

I donít think we were even looking for this place actively but on the way back from a frustrating and (hilariously) disgusting stop at Ďt IJ we happened across this on the way back into town. Itís a very large facility easily visible from the main road. Inside is actually pretty cool. They do lots and lots of tours. At the end of that tour is a tasting in a nice lounge area that you can see from the gift shop but you arenít permitted to enter unless you end up there with the tour. We opted to scroll past the tour as our desire to drink Amstel and Heineken at the source wasnít that great. Instead we looked around the gift shop at the amazing amount of Heineken branded crap available including some rebadged bottles but also plenty of non-beer things. Prices were understandably high as this is tourist-gouging central. In retrospect I suppose Iíd like to see how the brewery works considering how large it is. Maybe next time, if there is a next time.

This is by far the most expensive brewery tour which I suppose they excuse by calling it an "experience." It is a bit of a theme park, but nothing that should be at the top of your list in Amsterdam where there are so many good beers to try and bars to discover.
