Windmill Brewery: Brouwerij 't IJ

If you ever happen to find yourself in Amsterdam on a sunny day, here's something I suggest you not miss: Rent a bike in the center of the city and take a little ride over to this cute windmill, which happens to also be a brewery! On nice days (even if it's cold) the place is packed with people. The inside is super small, so most people sit outside at their long picnic benches under a canopy of trees. They serve delicious beer (their Wit Beer is my favorite) and it's cheap, something I can't say about the rest of Amsterdam! And lastly, something to note, don't go on an empty stomach. They don't serve food! Well, unless you consider a plate full of mediocre cheese cubes food...
