We originally brewed our Biri for Waterkant, a Surinam-inspired hang-out next to one of Amsterdams many canals. Few places with a more tropical vibe around town and a perfect spot to watch the boats go by with a beer in hand. We brewed a tropical lager to match that experience. Brewed with maize, Biri is light and fresh, a perfect thirst quencher for sunny and not-so-sunny days. It’s 4.7% allow you a little longer on a terrace or waterfront of choice.

The appeal of this sunshine loving maize lager transcended the confines of the Waterkant and hence it is now more widely available around town.

    Hmmmmmm heerlijk biertje. Zag deze bij Appie liggen en omdat het me deed denken aan Corona, heb ik het geprobeerd. Lekker fris niet bitter en vooral met warm weer heerlijk. Nu de vraag. In welke winkels kan ik het kopen?

      Hi Dennis, je kan Biri kopen bij veel supermarkten en slijterijen! Stuur ons even een mailtje als je het precies wilt weten waar je ‘m kan vinden in de plaats waar jij woont.

    Hi everybody,
    We were in your pretty browery and tasted this delicous beer. Unfotunately we can’t buy this nowhere to enjoy it at home in Switzerland 😔… is it possible to order some bottles and you deliver it to us?

    Thank you for your reply and have a wonderfull day!

    Kind regards

      Hoi Nadja, great to hear you enjoyed it so much you still long for it. The bad news is that we don’t deliver our beers ourselves. The good news: you have a perfect reason to come back to Amsterdam (don’t forget to stuff your bag with Biri). See you soon?

        Have a great day ☀️
