Looking for a great beer in Amsterdam? The microbrewry Brouwerij ’t IJ has a setting that’s about as Dutch as you can get: under an old windmill, on the eastern outskirts of town not far from the Dappermarkt (daily street market). All of IJ’s beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and top-fermented, and most are brewed in the Belgian style, with a few exceptions (a U.S.-inspired I.P.A.; an English-style barley wine). The interior is genuinely classy: the old washroom tiles and communal wooden tables provide continuity in style. If the weather is nice, head outside to their beer garden and enjoy your beer underneath a windmill overlooking a canal. It doesn’t get much better than this!
