“Excellent Landscape and Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

One of the few existing windmills in Amsterdam, its a beautiful place. Great windmill beer. The ambiance is a contrast to the modern architecture just outside, and it seems you are sitting in old-world Netherlands sipping beer looking at some future-world paintings. Must visit for the locally-brewed Windmill beer.

“Unique windmill downtown!! The best place to make friends and drink!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I have to leave this comment, for the best place we found to drink and make friends!

We visit Brouwerij 't IJ for the beer and see something diferent. There, we make a lot of friends (a couple of 50 years old talked with us about 2 hours, the man told us his histories of coldwar, comunism, we divided opinions about drugs, womens, football, nowadays news, it was a very good talk.

Of course, very good beer to quench thirst and food, good cheese and ham! Don´t leave there without try the trippel

“Excellent and inexpensive locally brewed beer in a windmill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A wonderful way to end one's day in Amsterdam. The brews in this small, organic brewery were tasty and affordable, as was the bar food (cheese, sausages, and nuts). Beer for €2,50 - €4, and food for €3 - €4!

Plus the location can't be beat, inside a windmill along a lovely canal, and right next to a metro stop for getting home after the bar.

A must visit on any trip to Amsterdam.

“Perfect end of the day / start of the night (if you like beer)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great home brewed beer and dutch snacks to go along with it. Open from 2PM - 8PM - thank god for early closing time, otherwise you would probably not survive the 5-9% beers. Perfect terrace for a sunny day. Well worth the bike ride.

“Windmill, beer & a canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

What more can you ask for ? On a lovely day, sit outside with beer from their own brewery on site under the sails, it is so quintessentially Dutch. The beer is top notch too !
