We have been here 3 times, we will fly 11 hrs, drop off our luggage and head for the windmill by the Texaco station. We love the winter beer. Love the atmosphere, we have met people from all over the world here. Love that we share tables. More room and tables since they have enlarged the brewery. The girls behind the counter are very friendly. We always get the cheese and salami plate and a bowl of nuts.

The BeerNut ROCKS! I think you have been to many of the more interesting beer places I have.

This is a very small brewery. They have a tap room that has windows to overlook the brewery activities. The tap room was staffed by efficient and friendly people, even if my Dutch speaking skills are minimal.

When I was there, I saw the brewer in cutoff shorts and rubber boots climb into the mas tun to shovel out the spent grain. While his kid played with toys in the corner.

I have to very highly recommend the Columbus. It can be found here in the states. However you have to look. It is an amazing beer.

At least it WAS amazing. I have heard some reports recently that they now have a bretanomyces infection somewhere in the brewery, so many of the beers now available have a distinct sour flavor. This is a true shame, and all of us fans hope that a solution is available soon.

A superb little tap for a superb little brewery. The decorating work done on this room at the front of the windmill-based 't IJ brewery is minimal: it's all white tiles and simple furniture.

The hours are unusual -- 3pm to 8pm -- which encourages a blue collar after-work crowd, rather than the terminally fashionable, as with many brewpubs. The beer, also available in bars and shops off-site, is first rate and cheap, even for Amsterdam.

It can be a bit of a trek out of the city centre to 't IJ, but it's well worth it. Get on your bike: everyone else is!
