When you say Brouwerij ‘t IJ, then you automatically think of the Zatte Tripel. It was the first beer brewed in the tanks on the Funenkade. In true Belgian tradition, it’s a full, malty and smooth 8% alcohol tripel. An unfiltered, robust golden beer with an aroma of fresh fruit and hints of grain.
We’ve freshened up our iconic Brouwerij ‘t IJ labels. We kept some of the classic elements, like the diamond and the ostrich, so it’s not a dramatic change. Yet the labels feel ‘crisper’ somehow. Why is that? We asked Gavin Arm, the British founder and Creative Director of design bureau Positivity in Amsterdam
Amsterdam, March 2021 – The iconic IJwit beer from Brouwerij ’t IJ is one of the most popular wheat beers in the Netherlands. IJwit first saw the light 20 years ago, in the brewery under the windmill in Amsterdam-Oost. Over the years, demand for alcohol-free and low-alcohol beer has increased dramatically, and more beer menus are featuring 0.0% and 0.5% options.
Nu onze vertegenwoordigers het wat rustiger hebben de komende periode hebben we besloten om de horeca te gaan helpen met transport. Hiervoor hebben we bakfietsen, scooters, maar ook auto’s en 2 bussen beschikbaar.
Free IPA 0.5%. A low-alcohol IPA, brewed with Amarillo hops, full of tropical flavors and a light bitterness.

(sorry, this live-event is only in Dutch!)
Coming Friday (May,15) at 17:00 we will go live again on facebook with a tasting of 4 beers: Session IPA, Natte, Columbus and the summer special Juicy IPA.
It’s early 2002 when Kaspar Peterson, the founder and first owner of Brouwerij ‘t IJ, decides that it’s time to brew an extra fresh beer for the summer. Session ales and IPA’s where at that time not yet commonplace in the Netherlands, so he decided that it has to be a white beer in Belgium style: IJwit was born.
Zatte Tripel is the first beer that came out of our tanks in 1985. For that reason, we gave this classic a special place in Amsterdam. If you’re wandering around Amsterdam make sure to have a look at Café Flamingo in de Pijp and Peperwortel at the Overtoom.
Marco knows how to make the most of forgotten veggies and turn them into solid Dutch ‘cuisine’.
We helped Pol, who runs Belgium’s smallest official brewery, to brew some more of his wheat beer. It’s a classic Belgian wheat: soft, fresh and herbal and we could keep some but that sold out quickly.
Go and visit her in the nearby zoo and come over for a beer afterwards.
On May 17th, it was International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia so we raised that flag and drank for tolerance.
