Brouwerij Troost

Brewery in De Pijp

Watch beer being brewed in copper vats behind a glass wall at this outstanding craft brewery. Its dozen beers include a summery blonde, a smoked porter, a strong tripel and a deep-red Imperial IPA; it also distils cucumber and juniper gin from its beer, and serves fantastic bar food, including crispy prawn tacos and humongous burgers. Book on weekend evenings.

Three other Amsterdam premises to date include one at Westergasfabriek.
