this is a small brewery, that means, sometimes we have to wait the staff to wash the glasses. There are two counters: the main one, where we order the beer, and the kitchen, the place we ask for sausages in slices or cheese in dices....More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

Yes its a great place to visit for a beer, you can sit outside, open from 2pm until 8pm, the windmill is picturesque and its also near the single canal and the zoo.
