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.

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!

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 Pilsner monoculture has been replaced by a wide variety of flavours, ranging from crispy saison to dark and syrupy stout.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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

After months of hard work we are pleased to share with you our new restaurant. Bar Alt creates quality dishes paired with the finest craft beer and natural wines. Head over to www.bar-alt.com to reserve a table.
22 Mar 2018Sometimes, 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.

You saw us brewing something special a while ago. We now introduce to you our new friend, a Double Bock brewed with bokkenpotjes: Billy Biscuit🍻! Billy Biscuit has a sweet chocolate body with added notes of roasted almonds. A lovely beer for fall. Billy Biscuit is already stocked in several bars across the country. Check here to find one near you. Cheers!
11 Sep 2017A while back we met Adam Underwear over a couple beers and decided we should make the ultimate gift for man. Beers and Boxers. In one convenient gift box.
Get your box online via Adam Underwear and don’t forget to enter the competition. The most original contender wins one year of free beers and boxers. Bottoms Up!
08 Sep 2017IP-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 2017Since 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 2017Going 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 2017For 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 2017Two 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 2017When 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
19 Apr 2017Now 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 20173-2-1 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.
30 Jan 2017Together with the fine chaps of Kever Genever we introduce the Headbutt 2.0 giftpack. This juicy pairing provides you an instant kick!
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 2016Together 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 2016Prior 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 2016The 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 2016The 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 2016It 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 2016More 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 2015In 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 2014The 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 2012We, 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.
