More than three decades ago, ‘t IJ was the very first to start brewing craft beer in Amsterdam. While they started with a range of Belgian style beers, they are up for anything these days. Be it tasty, low abv session ales, culinary stouts or hoppy wheat beers. They all come labelled with an ostrich, Amsterdams tasty craft beer symbol bird. As the festival terrain is located right in between their brewery and the river they are named after, ‘t IJ’s participation was clearly mandatory.
