Serious flavour

Two Chefs Brewing started in 2012 with the desire to completely stock our homes with home made funky beers and we haven’t stopped brewing since. We always aim to provoke the conventional and we like to stick out our tongue to the familiar.

The beginning

    For the second year in a row now, the fine people of Bacchus Wine festival have invited us to share our beers at their festival. And we hear you thinking ‘Beer? At a Wine festival?’ And to that we say ‘Yes! Beer at wine festival.

    Nothing beats a cold refreshing beer in between all the wine drinking. This year we’ll be there two weekends. Hope to see you there! Cheers.

    Op Dreef Festival, the garden party that got out of hand, where you can go completely crazy for 2 days with awesome hosts, creative cosiness and the intimate atmosphere that goes with a garden party! Sitting behind the geraniums is for later, partying in front of  the geraniums is for now!

    Almost since the start of Two Chefs Brewing we’ve been going to Op Dreef Festival. And since music and Two Chefs go hand in hand, we’ll be there again this weekend. Get ready for sunshine, beer and beats.

    A brewery without its own openers is not a brewery! After 5 years we thought it was more overdue to get our own openers. And honestly, nothing feels better than popping open a Funky Falcon with a Funky Falcon opener.

    If you want one, we’re handing them out at festivals, or if you order a sixpack through our webshop we might ad one to your order for free.

  • 17 May 2019

    It’s here! The future of beer. The 24 of April Jopen came to our brewery for the Craft Mega Collab and it’s safe to say we’ve brewed one heaven of a beer.

    Future testament is a DDH New England Session IPA of 4% and is hitting the shelves as we speak. We only brewed one batch of this special, so if it’s finished it’s finished or how we say in Dutch; op = op. Get yours now!

  • 11 May 2019

    Every year Mikkeller host a beer festival in Copenhagen. And since a few of us went last year, we decided to turn it into a tradition and go again this edition.

    With one hundred breweries per session and four sessions it’s going to be absolute mayhem in a good way. Let’s see if we can inspire ourselves a little bit with all the different breweries and styles. Skål!

  • 01 Apr 2019

    Great people attract great people. After welcoming our new Brewmaster Tony Miller, we’re very happy to now add two more members to our family.

    Liam joins us after having worked at Walhalla for some time and Warren came over from Ireland. Together with our trusted brewers Christian and Tom and our new brew master Tony, Warren and Liam will perfect our beers and occasionally brew some kickass new specials.

    When you have a Russian imperial stout that’s already sexy and smooth and you have a couple of Jameson Whiskey Barrels, the math is pretty simple. Mature that stout for a year in the barrels knowing she’ll become even more dangerous.

    The barrel aged Dirty Katarina was born out an unexpected friendship with Jameson Caskmates. And the result is quite amazing, if we may say so ourselves. Very limited, so try to get your hands on one sooner rather than later…

  • 15 Mar 2019

    All the way from Australia we’re super stoked stoke to introduce to you our new brewmaster Tony Miller. Tony has been working at The Kernel London the past couple of years, where he and his team brewed and perfected various styles of beers.

    Now Tony will help us raise the bar and perfect our core range as well as brewing new styles. We’re very excited having Tony on board leading the brew team and bringing some ‘down under’ vibes to our brewery. Welcome to the family, Tony!

  • 11 Mar 2019

    Another week another can! With our new filling line all installed we’ll be releasing more and more beers on cans. But this one right here is a pretty big milestone for us. Our all time favourite Funky Falcon is now available on cans as well as bottles and kegs.

    Greetings earthling, get ready for battle. Drink me, spread your wings and bust some moves on the dance floor. Like no one’s watching. Go for it and feel like a double rainbow. Yeah!

  • 05 Mar 2019

    Now here’s some news for all beer fans and beyond. Our first canned beers are hitting the shelves this week. Silver Bullet is a Westcoast IPA full of hops, mad flavour and she wears a silver label!

    In folklore, a bullet cast from silver is often the only weapon that is effective against a werewolf, witch, or other monsters. The term is also a metaphor for a simple, seemingly magical, solution to a difficult problem.

  • 28 Feb 2019

    About half a year ago we brewed a beer especially for our friends at Ter Marsch & co. A burger bar in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Though we never really celebrated this collaboration. So guess what? We’re going to celebrate our collaboration.

    Get ready for a crazy disco with copious amounts of Crazy Daisies from the tap. The Crazy Daisy is best described as a slightly smokey rye IPA. The perfect match for a burger!

  • 12 Feb 2019

    From parttimer to fulltimer Sven is now responsible for making every event as epic a burning man festival. Our own ‘Rudi’ will be tapping all of your favourite beers and specials at beer festivals, wine festivals, food festivals and music festivals.

    Oh…and look out for out new bar he made and let him know what you think when you see him! First festivals are already locked on our events page on Facebook. Check it out!

  • 01 Feb 2019

    Yes! More female superpowers in the house! Lisette has joined the sales team and will help us spread our serious flavour in the country and beyond.

    Liselotte is not unfamiliar with beer as she worked at Amsterdam’s brewery Troost before she landed her super sales job with us. Welcome Liselotte. May you share our beer with as many people in the world as possible.

  • 23 Jan 2019

    After 9 months of ageing, it’s finally time to reveal this white wine barrel aged saison. If you think beer is beer, well, you’re wrong. This beer has so much depth and flavour it’s almost hard to get your head around the fact it’s a beer.

    Of course there’s only a limited batch available, which means when it’s finished, it’s finished. Hit up your local liquor store or bottle shop and treat yourself.

  • 16 Jan 2019

    Jah Man. We brewed a new beer man! When mother nature has a little trouble making winter feel like winter we’re glad to help her out a little bit. Introducing the Jamaican Snowflake. A spiced Milkstout of 6.5%. Smooth and Sublime.

    “I’m feeling very Olympic today! Feel the Rhythm! Feel the Rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time! Rise and shine! It’s butt-whippin’ time! Feel the Rhythm! Feel the Rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time! Cool Runnings!”

  • 12 Jan 2019

    Wow. Just wow. Opening up the Parool Newspaper and reading our restaurant Bar Alt received an 8+ is by far the best news of the year so far.

    Quote: “I would love to drive to Antwerp for the bear pairings at Bar Alt. How lucky they are in the South of Amsterdam.”

    Congrats to everyone involved and a big thanks to everybody who has believed in us since the start.

  • 01 Jan 2019

    What better way to start the new year then have it start with some fresh blood. We’re very happy to welcome Olivier Von Grumbkow on sales, Megan Van Der Meer for branding and Hidde-Jan Vuyk as a new driver!

    Let’s hope the rest of the year will be as prosperous as the first day. Well actually, we can tell you it will, since there’s some exciting stuff coming up for the first half year of 2019. Let’s rock!

  • 31 Dec 2018

    2018 was another great year with great accomplishments! Among other milestones we: opened up our own Restaurant Bar Alt, introduced 7 new beers, made our own boxershorts with A-dam Underwear, got 3 more tanks, acquired a new filling line, hired female power (more will follow in the new year), launched our own webshop, made 3 barrel aged beers, awarded our biggest fan her own beer (launch in March next year), had our 15 minutes of tv fame on Omroep West, managed to get our beers to Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and China, were the only brewery at Bacchus Wijnfestival (twice), branded our brewery with a 6mx6m sticker and turned our office into a jungle. Now let’s kick some ass in 2019. Thank you for following us, have a great NYE and see you in the new year. Cheers!

  • 21 Dec 2018

    We’re now 15 men and 2 woman strong. And in the new year even more ‘chefs’ will join the team! Great to see our family growing with like minded people.

    For now we would like to wish you a Beery Christmas and a Hungover New Year. Cheers!

  • 13 Dec 2018

    We’ve brewed a couple of new beers which will be filled on cans with our new machine. Two great new additions to our ever growing range.

    We’ve brewed a West Coast IPA by the name of Silver Bullet and a Session Blonde Ale named Golden Paradise. Now they’re still hanging in the tree. In the new year you can pop them open!

  • 28 Nov 2018

    The craft beer revolution has come to Amsterdam. Pilsner monoculture has been replaced by a wide variety of flavours, ranging from crispy saison to dark and syrupy stout. The city’s beer scene has been boosted to unparalleled heights.

    Wish You Were Beer is a tourist guide book for beer lovers from Amsterdam and abroad. It presents a complete overview of the city’s brewers and a selection of beer bars and bottle shops. Highlighted are their history and meaning for Amsterdam’s beer culture in both words and photos. And we’re in it. With both Two Chefs Brewing and Bar Alt.

  • 27 Nov 2018

    Yay! Our new filling line has arrived. We couldn’t be more stoked. This new line enables us to fill 6 times faster and to fill on both bottles and cans. Why cans? Because in the end it’s better for the quality of the beer.

    We already have some beers ready to fill, so once installed we’ll be filling like a Red Rocket. Can’t wait to have the whole machine installed.

  • 26 Nov 2018

    This past weekend we had the pleasure of being the only brewery at Bacchus Wine festival. For the third time we were invited to have our own little beer stand, this time in an awesome location in the middle of the city by name of The Markthallen.

    Check out the video of the winter edition of Amsterdam’s biggest wine festival.

  • 10 Nov 2018

    We’re continuously working towards being a more sustainable brewery. That’s why we’re moving over from plastic kegs to these pink stainless steel beauties.

    Not only are these kegs better for the environment, they’re better for the beer as well. Keeping the quality high and flavours full.

  • 08 Nov 2018

    In 2017 an unexpected friendship arose between Jameson® Whiskey and Two Chefs Brewing. And since these type of fellowships should be celebrated we decided to brew a couple of beers and age it in Jameson® Whiskey barrels, that travelled here all the way from Ireland. Sine Metu. 

    Jameson then invited us to Ireland where we got the grand tour of their distillery in Cork. We had a blast! Thanks again Jameson. Now let’s see what comes out of the batch of Dirty Katarina, which has been ageing in your barrels for a year!

  • 22 Oct 2018

    We’re still improving the looks of our beers every day! Soon all of them will rock these brand new white caps! Logo of course by the talented Sander Pappot.

  • 09 Oct 2018

    One hundred beer connoisseurs had a hard time yesterday. They chose the ultimate head butt (or the classic combination: a beer with a Genever) from more than 1,100 Dutch beers (of which 9 were ours) and 4 Genevers.

    Beer and Genever come together and new flavors are created; a real 1 + 1 = 3. All this took place at the most complete Beer Genever pairing event ever, organized by BOLS in museum ‘t Kromhout in Amsterdam. The winning combination is Very Old Genever with Weizen beer.

  • 01 Oct 2018

    To make the ultimate gift truly ultimate, we have brewed a special beer for Adam Underwear: Adam’s Apple. Quirky, fresh and funky.

    The taste of the beer inspired them to design a boxer that gets everyone on fire, thus you immediately become thirsty. That’s why every boxer comes with two bottles of Adam’s Apple. Available here.

  • 17 Sep 2018

    In an all guys company things can go terribly wrong. Luckily we were just in time with getting some female power in.

    Rosalien Derkinderen will help us getting things organised and structured. On top of that she’s a great photographer, so we’ll get some solid team photo’s as well. Bonus!

  • 15 Sep 2018

    Last year we brewed a bock beer with a Dutch Delicacy: biscuits called bokkenpootjes. A cookie with almonds, chocolate and vanille.

    Since it was quite a succes we decided to brew it again and enhance the recipe a little bit. And with a recipe upgrade comes a label upgrade. From boring brown to red autumn fresh.

  • 06 Sep 2018

    It’s time! After several months of trying, testing and perfecting, we officially open Bar Alt’s doors to everyone. At Bar Alt, the world of fine dining in the high segment and craft beer comes together.

    Bar Alt is a concept unique to the Netherlands and is inspired by the latest developments in the European Beer Belt and gastronomy worldwide. Have a look at some pictures.

  • 21 Aug 2018

    The crazy guys from Ter Marsch and Co wanted a crazy beer to accompany their crazy burgers. Well, they came to the right crazy address.

    After tasting, more tasting and a little more tasting we knew what we wanted: A crazy beer, with a crazy ingredient and a crazy name. We landed on a Smokey Rye IPA called Crazy Daisy. Now go find out for yourself if it’s a crazy good beer. And you know what they say, it’s better to be crazy than to be insane.

  • 14 Aug 2018

    A beer in a big bottle has to be something really special. Not to patch our back or anything like that, but this Brett Saison really resulted in a beautiful complex beer.

    To get the flavour it has we added almost everything you can imagine. Strawberries, pink pepper, orange zest, raspberries just to name a few. Cheers.

  • 31 Jul 2018

    For our 5th anniversary we’re naming our next beer after our fan with the best, craziest and funniest nickname.

  • 11 Jul 2018

    At the end of 2017 an unexpected friendship between Jameson Irish Whiskey and Two Chefs Brewing arose. And in November of last year the Jameson Caskmates was launched in our brewery. After this, Jameson donated a dozen barrels to us so we could mature some beer in them.

    Now it’s finally time. The Rye India Pale Ale, which we brewed at the end of January, has now matured for over four months in Jameson Irish Whiskey casks and has since been filled and renamed the Mickey Almighty.

  • 05 Jun 2018

    After Sebastian, Tommy and Chris we’re glad to announce a 4th member has been added to our brewing team. Felix has joined us as a senior brewer. With German roots, a big smile and a lot of energy he will help us brew even more delicious styles and flavours.

    Welcome to the the team, Felix! Let’s start brewing! Cheers!

    Sometimes, you find yourself in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes, in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself and sometimes, you find me, the Acid Drop. A slightly sour Berliner Weisse with Blueberry and Vanilla.

    An absolutely perfect beer to usher in the summer. With only 3.6% in alcohol, fruity notes from the blueberry and silky smoothness from the vanilla, this Weisse is approachable for everyone, even if you’re not a big beer lover.

  • 07 Mar 2018

    IP-YAY! Finally we’re able to share with you some new serious flavour(s). We’ve reincarnated the Fruitcake and brought him back as two brothers: a White ánd a Black IPA, both with raspberries. The third one is a Double IPA with seawater.

    look out for these fresh babies in your local bar, supermarket or night shop. They’re pretty limited, so you better be quick!

  • 29 Aug 2017
    Since Funky Falcon’s appearance on our bottle, in secret we’ve been playing god, breeding falcons with frozen cells of the dodo, creating the first ever funky falcon that can fly.

    The time has come to help spread its wings for the first time with our: Flight of the Funky Falcon. Visit our events page for all our funky festivities.

  • 24 Jul 2017
    Going to the beach is always a good idea. But bringing back buckets of seawater to brew with, is even better.

    From the mysterious waters of Noordwijk Beach we are brewing something extraordinary. A brew from below sea-level. The saying goes that by drinking the seawater you sometimes taste a few tears.. Find out soon if the saying is true.

  • 24 May 2017
    For the second time we hosted a dinner with the nice folks from restaurant Jacobsz. This time in our own brewery amidst the brewhouse and the fermentation tanks.

    Cocktail Professor prepared a perfect welcoming cocktail, Mother earth provided the best lighting and temperature, and Daniëlle Reizevoort shot some beautiful photos.

  • 17 May 2017
    Two chefs Brewing go back to their sandy roots. Before the brewing started we worked the beaches with the same beach bums who now run beachrestaurant Hippie Fish.

    We collaborated to create a beachy brew for those who love sand in their hair and salt on their skin. Hippie Fish is a fruity, fresh and not at all fishy beer for the thirsty seaside-regulars on an endless summer day. YEOW!

  • 17 May 2017
    When you throw an opening party, you just have to brew a special beer for it. And so we did. A special-T beer if you will.

    Our brewmaster made a perfect tea beer and as an homage to him, we put him on the label and named the beer after him.

  • 20 Apr 2017
    They say you only throw an opening party once. Well we did it twice. And boy did we take it to the next level.

    Thanks to all of the people who have invested, trust and believe in us. We couldn’t have done it without you. We love you!

  • 19 Apr 2017
    Now that we get to brew ourselves, we thought it would be the right time to upgrade our identity too. Don’t worry though, you’ll still recognise us as Two Chefs, we’ve just spiced things up a little.

    Our new Designers Chris and Sander from zender.nu have translated our thoughts in a truly cohesive design. We hope you like it as much as we do.

  • 02 Mar 2017

    Hop-hop-hop! It is brewing time. Finally, after weeks of hard work and testing our muscles, we are happy to say that the renovation at the new Two Chefs Brewery is almost finished. We are brewing beer.

    Last week we put the hops in and today we are tasting the first brew. We are very excited and can’t wait to share the beers with you. But until then, check your local tap and have a sip of Funky Falcon, or maybe a Dirty Katarina? Don’t worry we won’t tell.

  • 06 Feb 2017
    3-2-1 liftoff! Visiting other planets and galaxies. Together with Space Beers we created an out-of-space Rye Pale Ale called Space Monkey. And he’s packed with some serious flavours.

    With every beer you drink you support Space Brewery with the making of their film: Space Beers: The Beginning. Luckily, you can stay on planet earth to get a sip of Space Monkey. Available here.

  • 30 Jan 2017

    We truly love this crafty modern interpretation of a typical Dutch habit and decided we could make it even better. Available via kevergenever.com.

  • 24 Nov 2016
    Together with the nice folks from restaurant Jacobsz we hosted a diner combining and pairing our beers with their fine cuisine with a bunch of Japanese influences.

    Night Out in Japan is the first of many nights we will host together. We can’t wait to host the next night out. Which theme shall we choose? Mexico, Brazil or Indonesia? Check the video.

  • 15 Nov 2016
    Prior to coming to Amsterdam our brewmaster from Germany brewed at Brewdog in Aberdeen Scotland as an advanced brewer.

    Now he will use his knowledge to brew the most funky beers for us. Welcome Sebastian Feind! Two Chefs’ fans, get ready for some serious flavour.

  • 01 Sep 2016
    The time has finally come. We’ve moved to our new location at the Moezelhavenweg 6 in the Amsterdam Westelijk Havengebied. 1600 square meters of Serious Flavour.

    We’ve been working hard for four years to accomplish this, but it really seems that we’re only starting now. What a ride it’s been and what a rollercoaster is to come!

  • 01 Jul 2016
    The summer asks for a light, drinkable, yet tasty beer, so we created a Wit with notes of coriander seed, lime leaf and cardamom. With only 5% a perfect beer for a perfect summer day on a perfect terrace.

    The White Mamba is the ninth addition of the family and has really made our steady range complete. But don’t worry, there’ll be many more types and flavours to come.

  • 01 Mar 2016
    It was time to separate the boys from the men. We wanted our own brewery, but we needed a way to finance it. A crowdfunding campaign seemed like the most logical step.

    After a mere one and a half month of crowdfunding we exceeded our goal and managed to crowdfund 300k. Thanks investors! Things are suddenly becoming very real.

  • 01 Jan 2016
    More beers, more clients, more people. If the production keeps multiplying, the team must grow too so in early 2016 we decided to take on two more hands to help grow the company and the brand.

    Eltjo Miedema (middle) fulfils the function of Sales Rep and John Vonk (right) is going to help grow the brand from a marketing, strategy and communication point of view.

  • 01 May 2015
    In 2015 we were still growing and in need of a helping hand. One of our close friends, Ralph presented himself to be a perfect match.

    Not only did Ralph become the first employee of Two Chefs Brewing but he became an instant ambassador with a beer named after him; Tropical Ralphie. And he’s living the brand ever since.

  • 01 Nov 2014
    The beer recipes and bottles started piling up and this forced us to move, so we relocated to a little warehouse in Amsterdam-Noord.

    More types and flavours were added to the menu and the name started to grow in and around the capitol. Soon enough Two Chefs Brewing poured out of many hotel, cafe and restaurant establishments.

  • 17 Jan 2013

    2013 marked the year of the official start of Two Chefs Brewing. On January the 16th we registered with the chamber of commerce.

    There’s no turning back now!

  • 01 Jul 2012
    We, Sanne and Martijn, both former chefs and working for corporate businesses, started brewing beer in 2012 with the desire to completely stock our homes with home made funky beers.

    In 2013 we decided to both quit our boring jobs to turn our hobby into a somewhat serious beer brand. Two Chefs Brewing was born and the world of brewing, tasting and drinking ignited.
