Beautiful place next to a canal with very nice (and strong!) beers brewed just here! Great price, atmosphere, place!

“yes. go there, don't miss it if you like special beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Artisanal small scale brewery. Very good beers. Nice to sit outside if there is sun. Eat a snack or get tapas at the neighbours. Bus 22 from central station.

“Gensis art area and not a bad walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

Take the free ferry across the IJ to Amsterdam Noord's old NDSM (old shipyards). Its quite an interesting area with many quirky art installations and plenty of old buildings just waiting to be rejuvenated. Its about a 5 km walk from one ferry terminal to the next and you can pick up maps of all the possibles walk from several spots once you're over there.
An eclectic cafe - The Noorderlicht is the last chance for refreshment until you get to the next terminal. Word of warning the cafe at the other terminal only takes cards not cash!! A bit strange when all you order is a coke and coffee.

“Beer heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2011

I'm in complete agreement with the previous reviewer. Those that know beer and visit Amsterdam will probably already be aware of this fine establishment. I come to Amsterdam about once a year and Het Ij is always a "must visit". Plzen is my personal favourite brew, but the other beers in the range are all worthy of exploration. Just not all at one sitting! The bar is also a special place. And very reasonable prices. Make sure you purchase a few bottles to take home. In fact I've just finished one now.
