For unique, tasty beers head to the Butcher’s Tears tasting room and brewery in an edgy industrial space on the south side of the city.
In the winter, kick back in the tasting room with minimalist spartan white tile all around. In the summer, soak up the sunshine and the beer outside in the parking lot beer garden.
This brewery was started by Felicia, an artist who recently graduated from the Rietveld Academie and Arkan, a brewer from Sweden. They brought on Herbert to help with marketing. Together they make a great team.
Try their interesting seasonal and limited edition beer like Raggle Taggle (summer) or Ex Voto (winter). Thunderhoney is a new favorite of mine. Butcher’s Tears loves to consult old recipes for their brews and the beers are all unfiltered and unpasteurized. You can always find something new and interesting here.
The tasting room is open Wednesday to Sunday in the afternoons. Check their website or Facebook for the latest events, they often have live music on the weekends.
Butcher’s Tears is a must for all microbrew lovers in Amsterdam!
