“Excellent beer! ”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Had a few Friday afternoon beers here in the sun, an excellent place in a nice setting. Be careful though, too many of the stronger beers and you feel a little wobbly. Random point, very high urinal in the gents! If yoy are below 5ft 8, good luck to you.

“Hey Americans, get your IPA here in this windmill!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Brouwerij ' IJ is great enough anyway, but for my fellow hops-loving Americans, this could be your Amsterdam paradise, as an IPA is one of their offerings. They don't have it on tap every time, but it's worth a try if you happen to be there when it's available. I went here a few times and one of the times the windmill was even turning!

“Top notch beer”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I have no problem saying that the 4-5 beers that I tried I would rank pretty much all in my top 10 all time. Went here 2 out of 4 nights we were in Amsterdam, and depending on when we get off the train or plane next time this will be my first stop. Great setting, great beer and for the amount of people there the service was more then fine. Get there early because they tend to close early.

“Beer lover's paradise”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Amazing brewery pub inside a windmill. Wifi is dodgy, but free. Great selection of their beers in both the bottle and on draft. English-speaking staff. Loads of places to sit inside and out. They close at 8, so get there earlier. Two tours of the brewery a day in the afternoon. Not much in the way of food apart from a few snacks, but De Biertuin just a few blocks away has killer food once you shut this place down. :)

“Such a treat”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

I've been here almost every time that I've gone to Amsterdam. It's a personal favourite. The beers are so so good, and even the delicious bar snacks are worth going for, like the rare sausage and sheep's cheese. We also loved the way that the walls are lined with beer bottles from around the world.
