can't beat it on a sunny day

Sitting drinking their own craft beer under the windmill next to a canal: quintessentially Dutch. You can sample a variety of their beers on a wooden tray too.

Not beer drinker myself, but liked their Zatte beer on tap. Nice outside terrace. Cool to hang out curing your hangover :-)

Awesome place! Even though we didn't do the tour this place was very cool! If you sit at the bar you can see a part inside of where they are brewing their beer. Great prices too! Cheeses and salami well served!!!

Electric cars & solar power is all well and good, but when it comes to sustainability, NOTHING can compete with a brew-pub powered by a traditional Dutch windmill...especially when they serve up the best IPA in Amsterdam (for <3 Euros). The IJ is a 'locals' scene conveniently removed from downtown 'dam with no English subtitles, but anybody who's ever ordered... More

A must stop for beer enthusiasts. This brewery is beautiful inside and out. It's an old bathhouse dating from 1911. The design is minimalist and clean. Adding to it's uniqueness, there's a nice spot in the wall to buy artisanal cheeses and salami plates. They have been brewing here since 1985. The building is adjacent to a national monument, the...

I would like to have given this Bar/Brewery a higher review score, but on the day of our visit (Easter weekend) the place was absolutely heaving. I was looking forward to sitting and sampling all the beers on offer. Sadly obviously due to it's popularity, it was standing room only and two deep at the bar. So we only stayed... More

Sadly, the tours are only conducted at certain times - sadly not fitting in with my trip. I decided to drop by for a drink anyhow - the beer was great! There was a wide selection of beer available, and a sausage counter. I was also able to have a look at the windmill alongside the bar.

We went here for a beer!!!! Really enjoyed the experience would recommend it again. If you are visiting the zoo it's worth a quick walk up the road and chill and take in the atmosphere the small is lovely. Would go back if we are in Amsterdam again!!!

I had great expectations before visiting, but was disappointed. First of all they do not accept VISA and secondly customers are treated differently. My wife and I saw several people getting a sample of five beers on a tray, but when I asked for the same I was told that they no longer offer that - only for regulars! The... More
