I visited this brewery tap on a Friday evening in late October 2011. To get there, either take tram 10 from Leidseplein to Hoogte Kadijk, or tram 14 from Dam Square to Portanusstraat. It is a two minute walk from either stop.

It only opens from 3pm to 8pm and seems to be very popular, being filled with (mostly) locals chatting away and having a few beers. The pub is located in a former bath-house just beside/underneath the windmill. It has fairly basic decor; white tilled walls, shelves lined with a myriad of old beer bottles, wodden tables and chairs/benches. The best way to get served is to go up to the bar, but wait service may be available. I had their Bokbier (as it is bokbier season) and also a couple of others including Struise (in a bottle). We also had some Skeapsrond; - a sheeps cheese made with molk from sheep fed with spent malts from the brewery. Very nice with a beer.

It is cheaper to drink here than other places in Amsterdam, so that contributes to it's popularity. It is a nice place to spend a couple of hours.

Located next to the Gooyer windmill, this is one of the most picturesque breweries I have visited! They have been open since 1985, in a building that used to be a municipal bath house, and have been crafting beer there ever since. The bar is a newer addition and they had 6 beers on tap when we visited. They are one of the only breweries we saw in Belgium and the Netherlands that actually offer a sampler, so we were able to try all the beers amongst our group. The walls of the tasting room are old and cracked white tiles from its bath house days and are lined with dusty and faded beer bottles. My Minnesota radar was on and I spotted a Fitgers sticker on one of the doors. Most of the beers were Belgian style, like a tripel, dubbel, and wit, but had a house flavor that didn't quite fit those categories.

The tripel and wit were a bit rough on the finish...perhaps too much coriander or other spices? Their Struiss barleywine was fantastic though, dripping with dark fruit, sugar, yeastiness and complexity. The busy family style bench and table set up in the room encouraged talking to neighbors and we ended up discussing beer with Canadian ex-pats and several locals. A very fun place to visit and worth the trip out there.

this place is awesome! do yourself a favor and get a sampler and grab a seat outside! they had a good selection of beer and my personal favorite was the IPA. the atmosphere was great they had big outdoor picnic tables, so you were able to sit with other people and enjoy beer. but one of my personal favorite feature of this brewery was it was located right beside a windmill. if you've ever been to Amsterdam you know everything is only a stone throw away, so with that being said hit this place up
