Great beer, good snacks (especially the cheese), knowledgable and friendly staff. The beer tasting board is a great way to try some of their different beers. Their IJwit was the best beer I had in Amsterdam - after extensive tests!

People were queueing by the door before 2pm opening times and when they opened, everyone just ran to the bar. Someone from the staff said "f****** sake Jezus Christ let me open the door". Afterwards we were told to move into one line queue to the bar although others were served just in front of us just fine. Beer was... More

Even if the visit (15h30) is short and you don't see lot of things, the speaker is interesting. And for the small price (4,5€) you have a beer so... The place, building and the brewery are very nice, the beer good, and people who were eating looks happy so I guess it's a 'must be done' !

We visited Brouwerij t IJ a few weeks ago: What a great atmosphere on the sunny terrace with a lot of young, international people. The Brouwerij (brewery) offer a selection of more than 10 beers! Very modest prices, around 2,5 euro for a super draught beer! Apparently, there is a possibility to have a tour in the brewery (next time... More

Even though we missed the tour, this was a great place to hang out, watch people and have some local beer. The old windmill is a lovely sight, the sunny courtyard was relaxed and full of tourists and what looked like local people to us (though we had no way to tell, not being Dutch speakers) and the food and...

Our first actual Brewery stop during our Beercation (amsterdam, bruges, brussles) and it was a lot of fun. Very fun location (windmill and all) with a pub inside atmosphere and a nice outside area for nice days. It was a little chilly but we sat outside anyway. We had the sampler flight and then a glass of two others. Tasty... More

Nice stop for a few beers and food plates. Great assortment of munchies - sausage, cheese, peanuts, etc. We had a few different beers (I believe there were around 10 to choose from) and between the four of us, we tried them all. There's no tour, just a great place to stop in for a snack.

Tried pretty much every beer and all were beerlicious! The sun was out that day so the terrace was the perfect spot to be. Seemed like a spot that tourists as well as locals can enjoy.

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.
