Heineken brewery Mar 20, 2011
The Heineken Brewery is a recommended few hours thing to do in Amsterdam.

It costs €15 euro which initially i found quite expensive but afterwards found fairly reasonable.

The staff at the brewery all appear to really enjoy their jobs and are very friendly. I found this brewery quite interactive which is so much more interesting than just walking around reading tonnes of text from walls and books etc.

There is, for instance, a personalised Heineken bottle maker that u pay €5 for but get your name put on a bottle! There is a simulator which puts u in the 'making of the beer'! You are the beer! There is a tasting room where they let u taste the beer and after asking the friendly dutch man could i keep the cute glass he responded 'what i don't see i don't know'... on this note i popped the glass in my bag ;)

With your ticket u get two complimentary tokens for 2 glasses of Heineken but if u stay in the drinking room for long enough other people are bound to give u their tokens!!!

Altogether very worthwhile thing to do in Amsterdam.

After a hard-day of sight-seeing, this is a great place to visit. We took off from the Rijksmuseum at 4'30 and made it in with the last group.

The Tour was interesting with thorough explanation of the history and method. There were a lot of interactive stuff, like 3D experience Heineken,photo and voice mail. One could make their own bottle as well. But singing in Dutch was quite difficult.

Personally, the Heineken tasted better than any place that I have tasted.

The entrance fee was fairly reasonable with I AMsterdam card.

A must for beer lovers and one of the number one things to do in Amsterdam. Definitely a very interactive brewery compared to others. You can chill in a Heineken recliner chair and watch the many different types of commercials they have brought out or there's a room with massive projector screens all around you. Make your own beer or wallpaper plus more And right at the end have a few free beers then check out the Heineken gift shop which has everything.

HEINEKEN!!!! Mar 07, 2011
The Heineken brewery tour was a good tour. If you are in to history its a good tour to take but if you are into beer its a better tour to take. I was pretty hung over and drained the morning we went here. My two friends are both big Heineken drinkers so they really enjoyed the tour. At the end of the tour you have a chance to Brew your own Heineken and have your name put on the bottle. Also at the end of the tour you get 2 free drinks which is good. I would actually suggest visting this place.
