The last time I was here (see review below) I was deeply unimpressed, although, as I said at the time, the beer was good. I am pleased to say that the pub has undergone a thorough makeover and the result is first class. It is now bright and airy, with an island bar and a new space with additional seating.
My companions and I enjoyed two lengthy sessions here and we all agreed the IPA was better than ever. The place has upped it's game and is now an essential stop on a visit to Amsterdam.

L shaped bar with a large dead space at one end. Very basic furniture. The pub seemed slightly run down on this visit. The first beer sampled was Zatte, which was not great. The follow up, the IPA was very good and several more were consumed. Beer aside, I wasn’t greatly impressed with this place and won’t be rushing back.

i do really like this place. if its a sunny day (which are few and far between in holland) then its great to sit out under the windmill with a selection of beers and a plate of peppered cheese. if its not so sunny, the tasting room/bar is suprisingly spit and sawdust, which is also nice.

its worth mentioning that if you are heading out to the brewery from centraal station, 'voyagers coffeeshop' is en route which is one the best coffeeshops in amsterdam, smoke wise, so combining t'ij and Voyagers product leads to a thoroughly pleasant and hazey afternoon.

Paid a timely visit here last night on a long overdue crawl of Amsterdam pubs on the 22 bus route.
I ordered a glass of Columbus in Dutch as being able to speak a little bit of the local language goes a very long way. A glass of the aforementioned liquid duly appeared. I soon got into conversation with some extremely friendly locals who would not allow me to pay for drinks throughout this cracking session. I only noticed this point when asking for my bill (in Dutch).If it's worth doing, it's worth doing at the Ij.

My first visit to this place on 3/08/2008 and would thoroughly recomend it. I arrived before it opened (hours on a Sunday are 15.00-20.00 and I think that may be the same for the rest of the week as well) so I went for a few in the bar on the other side of the canal which also has a good range of beers.

There's a large outside seating area. The bar staff are really good and the atmosphere is very friendly. The beers are, like everbody says here top notch.

You can get there by number 22 bus from near Centraal Station or the number 14 tram which goes via Rembrandtplien. Well worth the short trip.
