The Netherlands is like this beer-epicentre. German brews to the east. Belgian gold to the south. British ales from across the pond. And the land of Heineken and Grolsch smack in the middle. If you like beer, it's good to be a dutchman.

Some other belgian beers to consider: Verboden vrucht, Duvel, Het elfde gebod, Hoegaarden Grand Cru, Speciale Palm, Geuze Lambik

Duvel... Christ... my New Zealander mate summed that one up when he said, "It's loik drinkin' a fackin' hand grenade." 

Damn straight - A few of them and you know you've had a beer...  :jook:

Duvel is one fine beer, but it's got nothing on westmalle.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

Said it before and Iĺl say it again. Irish Stout has to be THE least beer-tasting brew I ever drank. Calling Guinness your favorite beer, is on par with saying you don't like beer.

Shiranu already posted the Trappist beers. Brewn by monks. There's a dutch one he left out (La Trappe) brewn near Tilburgh where my dad grew up.  The cream of the crop imho  is the Rochefort though. Brewing perfection! the no 10 is the quadruppel which went through 4 fermentation cycles.

religious devotion applied to beerbrewing can really put one's antitheism to the test.

Actually, there's ten of them, 6 in Belgium, 1 in Austria, 1 in America and 2 in the Netherlands (don't forget about the newcomers: St. Joseph & Zundert).
I showed Shiranu the 6 Belgian ones because he seemed to enjoy Chimay so :p

I come from Den Helder, Where the ferry to the isle of Texel starts it's brief journey. And Texel has a nice brewery



For the dutch posters... give beer from Texel a try. It's pretty good.
Is there a local microbrew you're impressed by?

I've never even seen that. I'll have to take a look.

I've had a decent local amber ale from Rosoe's Hop House. They also make a decent Belgian white that I prefer to Blue Moon. They're based out of Rochester NY, so not really "close", but it is the next state North of me. Rochester is about a 6 hr drive from where I am...  Lol

It's a local brew, and I be surprised if you can get it in other corners of the Netherlands like Limburg or Zeeland... let alone outside the country.

Stella is great, but if you haven't yet, you should try it's main competitor.



I prefer jupiler myself, but am glad Stella is going more and more global.

I don't drink beer anymore, but just looking at this thread suggests something I've always believed whole heartedly:  Any beer that represents quality and a good taste, doesn't come in a can. 

I made that observation at a college party one time to a bunch of people that were each on their tenth or twelfth can of beer, and they just looked at me foggy brained like what I said didn't register.  It would seem the point of drinking beer was just to get shit faced, which partly explains why they were all drinking Lucky Lager and Great Falls Select.

Yeah, gotta second that.  Bottled beer is where it's at for me too.     O0
