Brouwerij ‘T IJ

Funenkade 7, 1018 AL, Amsterdam, Netherlands

www.brouwerijhetij.nl

Amsterdam’s favorite micro is now the city’s oldest brewery, even though it was founded only in 1985. Strong Belgian-style ales form the backbone of the output, though there’s also a pils and a witbier. Set in an old windmill, the taproom is thronged on warm summer afternoons, its outdoor seating taken up by drinkers enjoying the lowest beer prices in Amsterdam.


Turbock

beer style: Doppelbock
alcohol content: 9% ABV

Packed with dark fruits and molasses sweetness, the trademark Ij spiciness adds a dimension not found in German bocks.


Columbus

beer style: Strong Ale
alcohol content: 9% ABV

A balance of biscuity malt, coriander, lemon, and resinous, minty hops. Assertive, but not overpowering.
