Beers of Europe: Part 6 - Amsterdam
There are two well known beers that come out of Amsterdam and they are Heineken and Amstel. I told myself I was going to try these here just because I wanted to see if they were worth it when they were fresh. Of course every time I went somewhere with a tap list there was something else just that much more interesting so I never did try either. From chatting around I found out that the Dutch are on the verge of a craft beer craze but at this point the specialty beers in this area were mostly from Belgium. We did find some real nice ones at a local bar that only served local beers.
