Why locals love it

Yes. A bar in a mill. Brouwerij Het IJ is already quite popular among tourists. But that doesn't mean locals don't come here. In 1985 a Dutch man thought is was time to provide the people of Amsterdam with special beers, just like the Belgians do for their people. All the beers are still made in the two breweries in this street.

Why you should visit it

Holland is a beer-country. The premium beer is still the most popular beer. Not here. Go to Brouwerij Het IJ to experience the taste of special beers: Brown beers, blonde, white and many other types of beers. You can also have a guided tour or a beer tasting in the brewery.

Special tip

Brouwerij Het IJ is a brewery and the bar is officially its 'tasting bar'. That's why it closes already at 20:00.
