"Rainy Day #2 - Another Brewery!!" Brouwerij 't IJ Brewery Tip by johngayton
Brouwerij 't IJ Brewery, Amsterdam: 4 reviews and 9 photos
This was a bit of an unexpectedly pleasant find for me as I passed quite an attractive windmill on the No 26 tram going into the city from my hotel out on the Eastern Docks - the windmill turned out to be a brewery!! The Brouwerij't IJ to be precise and so the following day it was time for a visit :)
Arriving at lunchtime I discovered that the brewery's tap room didn't actually open until 3 pm and so I had to seek shelter from the afternoon's torrential rain - fortunately there are plenty of little bars around to do so and a Heineken or 2 served to refresh the palate before the real work of the afternoon commenced.
The 6 different beers on tap this afternoon ranged from the relatively innocent 5% Plzen up to the serious Struis at 9% and made for a rather interesting little research project as the Tap Room filled with damp but thirsty customers all obviously embarking on their own personal researches - yep this is well worth a visit even if it's not a rainy day!!
Address: Funenkade 7, Amsterdam East.
Directions: When passing on the 26 tram the windmill is pretty obvious, just get off at the next stop and backtrack!
