Poesiat & Kater Amsterdam: for homebrewed beers and cosiness

the best beers can be found at Poesiat & Kater Amsterdam

Poesiat & Kater Amsterdam is your favourite if you like beer and cosiness. Because honestly, who doesn’t love that? ;-). Poesiat & Kater Amsterdam is a brewery and tasting room in one. Jorn Stouten, Dafne van den Boom, and Thomas Perkhaan, all with the necessary hospitality experience, were fascinated by the history of the biggest brewery of Amsterdam: Van Vollenhoven’s brewery ‘De Gekroonde Valk’. The brewery doesn’t exist anymore though, which left the three thinking. Not long after that Poesiat & Kater Amsterdam became a fact.

Nice: Poesiat & Kater is named after two employees that worked in the brewery: Bart Poesiat and Klaas Kater. Not just regular employees though; they had housing built for the workers of the brewery. That was the start of the first housing association in The Netherlands. Special, isn’t it?!

On the bites menu you’ll find snacks like: a fish platter, a saltimbocca skewer with chicken thighs, a bycatch fish croquette, a grillburger with cheddar as a slider, fried codfishcheeks with classic tartar sauce, garlic olives, or some delicious macadamia nuts.
