Brewery de Prael Amsterdam: tasting room at the Red Light District

1 December 2015

home brewn beers on tap at brewery de prael Amsterdam

In the narrow alley ways of the Red Light District is where you find Brewery de Prael. A hidden gem with a sparkly coziness. With the vintage furniture it seems like one big snug living room, where you will feel instantly at home. Extra nice: from the tasting room you can see the handcrafted brewery. And it’s that beer that you can taste at de Prael. They only serve you a beer from their own brewery. What makes the tasting room of de Prael different then others is their extensive and diverse menu. Full with good snacks, because that is what tastes best with a good glass of beer. The dinner menu will surprise you! With a variety of dishes from ‘grandmothers pot roast’, ‘Fish & Chips’ to ‘pasta vongole’. Sounds alright, doesn’t it?

Lazy Sunday at Brewery de Prael

Even though not everything at de Prael is about the beer. On a lazy Sunday we bumped into brewer Fer Kok and he told us about the golden combination of working with people and with beer. Thirteen years ago he started up the brewery and he combined the brewing process with working with people. One person works there 7 days a week, and someone else only for 7 minutes a day. But everyone is part of the big family, something you notice in the easy going vibe. Secretly I’m always curios where the Amsterdam brewers like to drink their beer when they have a day off. Fer likes to go to ‘In de Wildeman’ and ‘Bar Joost’ where they have a wide selection of beers on the menu. But… on Fridays he likes to drink his own beer in his own tasting room!

Tip: feel like a full day in the red light district after a beer tasting at Brewery de Prael We selected the nicest hotspots in the Red Light District, with for example restaurant Anna, favourite restaurant amongst the men of Brewery de Prael!
