If you like beer and you are visiting Amsterdam you shuld visit the beautiful and old brewery “de Prael”.
Brewery de Prael and their shop and tasting room, is located in a former auction house and carriage dairy on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal 30 in Amsterdam. This is one of the oldest places of the city and near the Red Light District.
Their tasting room is situated on an other adres. This adres is Oudezijds Armsteeg 26.
Since 1300 there was a dock and carried wooden ships beer from Germany. Here arose the first breweries in Amsterdam later. This place fits perfectly with our traditional methods of brewing that we can call unique. You can follow their extensive guided tours daily. For more information, please visit their store or go to their site. Brouwerij de Prael keeps the beer brewing process of their brewery history alive as it still is the same as centuries ago; still from before the industrial age. The brewery has a modern installation, but all of their choices, before and after brewing, are traditional. That’s beer in its purest form. As pure as the songs of the Dutch food and song.
In their tasting room you feel yourself at home. You have a view on their brewing equipment and brewing their craft beer. In a relaxed atmosphere you can taste their and other special beers, snacks, food and also you can enjoy a good meal. Their honest, often Dutch (also vegetarian) meals usually have something to do with beer and the products are purchased at local suppliers as much as possible.
