Damn this building is cool. On the inside the selection is pretty typical of a brewery. Slightly disappointing there isnít anything more special on draft than what they bottle and distribute, because everything we tried was really great. There is an enormous beer garden out front. Lots of people on beer tour mixed with lots of locals enjoying an afternoon brew.
Easily one of the better value experience places in Amsterdam. The food looked great when I was there and it was very refreshing to see a fully-stocked micro brewery with their own beers for sale. I had not eaten there so I can not score their food but the snacks flowing fast from the kitchen looked well prepared and not over done. .
I really respect a microbrewery which sets up to offer a diverse range of beers and one which has strong ethical commitments. This place is outstanding for how it contributes to society and the local beer scene.
I just wish there was more choice for craft guest and it was very noisy whilst I was there. It was a great example of a hustling community brewpub. .
A classic place you cannot miss if in Amsterdam. A little off-center but not so far that it cannot be walked from the Amsterdam center. One thing really cool about this pub is showing up there at 2:55pm on a week-end 5 minutes before it opens. Nobody there. And by 15:10 there wasnít a single place to sit anymore despite the large patio that sits over 100 people. They had 5 taps of housebeers while I was there as well as 2 bottles. Minimal beer-related decoration. Food is small snacks only and they were cheese, cold sausages and boiled eggs (or something like that). I cannot say I was impressed by the beers. Like many Dutch beers, they were all very yeasty and the beers were mostly a yeast soup with some variants, not exactly to style. Still, this was a fun few hours and a must visit in Amsterdam.
Small, charmingly grungy tasting room with limited seating, especially in the evenings when it gets quite crowded, no doubt because of the early closing time. The beers are poured in appropriately small servings, a sample tray of all 6 beers on tap for about 7 Euros is also available. Service is very friendly and attentive. The beer quality is a bit average, but this place is a nice alternative if you ever get tired of the big three.
My son moved to an appartment just around the corner - lucky me. Popped in to have a peek and buy some beers, no time to sit doen. Pretty crowded and I kove the beer bottles stacked all over, want to count them one day. Service was very helpful and of course wanted me to have a beer from tap, helas, no time. Looked pretty cool to me. They have their own beers, thatís it, but that is enough.
On the outskirts of town, but a nice bar/brewpub with tons of outside seating available as well as some spots inside. RIght near the water, so thereís a nice view. Staff was a bit short with us, but not terrible. Beers were alright, nothing special. Donít really need to go back here again, though.
You canít miss this place because thereís a big windmill on top of the brewery. Came here on a Thursday and Friday night and the tables outside were very busy and a good atmosphere. Beers are of the cloudy, strong Belgian yeasty variety and pretty damn good. Inside they also have some lagers and macro beers so Iíd recommend sticking to the brewpub beers. Waitress service outside and the staff inside we chatty and helpful. Snacks and food are also good and you can get a 5 pack of the beers to take home afterwards. Some of the best beers I had in Amsterdam.
A wonderful place a bit on the side from the main tourist area of Amsterdam. A lot of locals, always crowded. Came by on a Friday afternoon, patio is completely full. Very nice atmosphere, everything in sight, old building with rustic, brewery feel. Staff was perhaps a bit stand-offish for a stranger, but nice enough. Very low prices for Amsterdam. Only six taps, five regulars and one seasonal (IPA this time), all own beers. Some of their own beers in bottle as well. Very nice and worth a visit if youíre in town. Fairly easy to reach by a tram. Number ten goes by. Brewery tours are cheap and still include a beer, if youíre into that sort of thing.
