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
