Today I would like to share a little something on the Brothers in Law Brewery! A brand new concept born in the Jordaan. As you know I adore local initiatives, products and businesses. Some time ago the different ‘BIL brewery’ beers started showing up everywhere and started getting my attention! I was very curious to the story behind this carefully designed brand.
As it was real life brothers in law; Tim (T.), Tim (F.) and Felix discovered a mutual dream to start brewing their own beer. Tim (F.) had his share of knowledge and experience as he worked as a brewer for some time. This, as you can imagine, was a big help in setting up their own brewery and make their own beers. They love experimenting with old and new styles and ingredients, but beer still has to stay beer. ‘Tradition meets revolution” they like to call it.

‘BIL Brewery’ is only started out a few months ago. At this point they are brewing their beers in a location just outside of Amsterdam, and do not have their own set up in Amsterdam (yet!). So trying the beers you can do in one of the many bars now serving them (Café Thijssen, Café de Tuin, Café de Blaffende Vis for instance).
Every year on the second Friday of January I like to organize a ‘new years’ party in the hotel, for all my neighbours of the Bloemgracht. This year, I asked BIL Brewery if they would like to serve some beers at the party, which they did! I though it would be a great way to introduce some of my neighbours with this new brand, which started out just a few blocks away. Loved working with these amazing, no-nonsense guys.

In short: great beers, lovely design, no-nonsense brewers. Keep up the good work guys!
