For dutiful brewers, an essential place to meet in Amsterdam is at Brewery ‘t IJ. All the beers here are homemade and handcrafted. They are not filtered or pasteurized. You can make your own brew and taste others at the bar which is at the foot of the Gooyer, the largest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. It’s open every day from 2 to 8 p.m. But if you would like to have a little place to sit you need to get there early.
