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

Damn this building is cool. On the inside the selection is pretty typical of a brewery. Slightly disappointing there isn’t anything more special on draft than what they bottle and distribute, because everything we tried was really great. There is an enormous beer garden out front. Lots of people on beer tour mixed with lots of locals enjoying an afternoon brew.

very cool setting in amsterdam, on a nice day the patio is very cool where you can sit under some trees and sip their beers and enjoy some quality people watching. beer isn't amazing, but a fun hour or 2 hanging out at a great spot. definitely recommend to folks visiting amsterdam...easy tram ride from city center.

Vibe: The brewery is quite a walk from the center of the city but upon arrival to the brewery, you are treated to a view of one of the few windmills in the city limits, which happened to be spinning. The brewery is located in a small building near the base and had a large outdoor seating area like a German biergarten. Hundreds of empty beer bottles decorated the walls inside.

Quality: Beers were served in the proper glassware at the proper temperature. I really liked the oversized snifter I got to try their Belgian Strong Dark Ale.

Service: Service was very quick because there was a very large portion of the bar without chairs that people would walk up to and bring back items to their tables.

Selection: A total of eight beers were available on-tap. Prices were very inexpensive - less than 3€ for glasses and 8€ for a flight of five beers.

ZATTE is where its AT! On a solo backpacking trip last summer I met a few guys at the flying pig and we journeyed over to this place. After a long walk we got there and it was closed (and raining) my spirits sank deeply but thankfully they opened up and hooked us up with samplers. Natte, zatte, wit, columbus, etc. not expensive in any way and good pours of each. my favorite by far was zatte. If i ever get back to amsterdamn this is going to be one of my first stops. the guy that served us behind the bar is one of the brewers and he's able to actually talk beer with you in english. Its good to meet new exciting people in new exciting places and this is a great place to do so. thanks to the guys at brouwerij't IJ, they really made that day a good one!
