Went with Gert-Jan and Hans...This was our first stop of the evening and the place was Packed!!!! But it wasn't that bad at all. Good beers,good cheese,more good beer. A great place to have a few good beers. Make sure to try the Vlo (sometimes you can be lucky and grab it on tap, or try the BierKonig for a bottle).. Is a small quaint little place but you almost feel like you are drining at an old friends house, but can be very busy at peak hours, but its really not that bad. enjoy the huge bottle collection on the wall, and try some cheese while you're at it.. a MUST if in Amsterdam!

Very cool spot a bit off the beaten path. Situated in an old windmill which makes it worth the visit alone. Short hours and gets very crowded so go early if you want to get a seat. Seemed like a good mix of tourists and locals when I have been here. Not a huge selection of beers but everything is solid.

Let's start with the huge windmill on top of the brewery with picnic tables outside and decent bar scene inside. It took awhile to figure out but you order from the center of the bar only, and on the side for to go beers and food. Small handful of beers on tap, and 5 or 6 in bottle. Decent range with Natte being my favorite. Worth a stop in while in Amsterdam but take an uber vs walking from downtown
