“Best Microbrewey in Holland!!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

A bier lovers must visit destination. The 10 bus from Centraal Station is the quickest way there. Located at the bottom of an old molen, or windmill, amidst canals, very picturesque. The bier is amazing, everything from a wit to the strong Columbus ale, 9.0%. The meat n cheese plate is an ample serving and compliments the bier so well. Inside seating for those soggy Amsterdam days, but also wonderfull terras seating with those umbrella type trees offering shade on the sunny days. Just an enjoyable experience all around. Opens and closes early, by 8pm I believe, so maybe plan to go to the Green Elephant or some other nearby cafe afterwards. As I stated, bier lovers, don't miss this place, a well kept Amsterdam secret.

“Great place to drink a few beers”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The brewery under the windmill was an awesome place to drink a good beer or two. What a wonderful time talking beer with the barkeep and enjoying the company of friends. The beer was very good and the varirty was good. We even tapped a new keg when we were there...the barkeep drained the old one into out glasses for free!!!
The brewery is in what I was told is the last windill within Amsterdams city linits and they are trying to save it!
Worth a visit!

“Brillant fun.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We did the brewery tour on the sunday, it was cheap (about 5euros) with a free beer. The tour was good fun and the guide very amusing. We enjoyed several beers on tap and a plate of salami's.
Highly reccomended for any beer lover, it was packed full of locals and tourists, i would defintely go back.

“Beer in a windmill!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

For an authentic Dutch beer experience, head here! Not only is the brewery housed in one of Amsterdam's remaining windmills, you can also take a tour and try a taster - 5 small glasses of 5 different local beers. There are also a few snacks on offer as well.
