Brouwerij 't IJ for Beer!

If you enjoy beer as I do, a trip to Brouwerij 't IJ is worthwhile. Nitai and I were thinking of going to the Heineken Brewery, until Robino told us of this much more interesting, and Dutch, Brewery on the East side.

It took about 25min. to bike from the house.... very easy to find: Just head East, along the zoo, then look for the windmill.

If you want the tour of the brewery, you'll have to show up on Friday, otherwise, it's always good for a quality beer between 3pm and 8pm.

The bartender explained each beer to us (6 available). The 4th one on the list sounded the most enticing, so we jumped at the first opportunity to order a "Columbus."

And it was no let down. For E2.30 (I cant find the euro sign) you get a delicious, bittersweet, brew. (25ml)

Despite being Alc. %9, The Columbus was a well rounded beer with an a smooth finish. Cheers! I suggest trying some of the others so that we can review them all.

Food was also available, but I would stick to the beer.
