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 !

If you have ever wanted to sip a wonderful Dutch beer under a windmill (everyone, right?) this is your place. This windmill is now a brewery that makes some of the tastiest beer in Europe. It's an easy bike ride from the center of the city. Pedal over on a nice day and sip a few beers in the outdoor seating area directly under the blades of the windmill. Try the Nette...it's fantasic.

Our group didn't do the tour but was thrilled to end up here after a long day of walking and touring Amsterdam. It was crowded maily with locals on a sunny Friday afternoon so we were unable to find a table outdoors even though there were many, but found a roomy table inside. The bartenders were very helpful and patient about educating a group of Americans on what to order, and prices were half or less than any other bar or cafe we visited. We got a few small plates or cheese and salami as well to go with the beer.

Would definitely return!

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!!!

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.
