“Really cool biergarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

My husband and I rented bikes for a day in Amsterdam and decided to bike out to this brewery. It was an easy and beautiful bike ride here. Located at the base of an old windmill, you can't get a better dutch beer drinking experience! Staff was very friendly, beers were very reasonable in price and pretty delicious! We sat outside and had an awesome time! Great atmosphere!!!

“A little disappointing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

This place could be so much more than it is. The atmosphere is lacking, the staff unfriendly and seemed to resent being at work. The beer itself is great but I could buy their beer at bars all over town that were actually fun to be at. Cold finger foods to accompany the beer (I was hoping for more substantial pub grub). With that said, it was awesome to drink great beers in the shadow of an amazing windmill and I would go again next time in Amsterdam.

“Windmills and Beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stopped by this brewery by chance after a long bike ride through the city. We didn't do the tour but enjoyed some delicious beer at the bar cheerfully provided by the bar tender who was most knowledgeable! Great place for great beer and some dutch history.

“Great find”

One of Amsterdam's lesser known sights particularly if you like beer. Well worth a visit for an afternoon drink

Great selection of interesting beers. Can get a taster bowl to taste beers, can buy snacks, all good value for money! Very nice when good weather. Definitely recommend!
