We just happened upon Amsterdam’s De Bekeer de Suster Brewpub, a great discovery for us three beer drinkers.
Their own brewery beers topped of the menu but there was also a wide selection of all sorts of beers, and even a selection of wine for non-beer drinkers.
The decor was modern but maintained a lot of pub character.
Here’s some instructions on how to brew your own beer. Al and I both decided to try their wheat beer, the Witte Antonia.
Al tried Google translate on the beer label, which was interesting, especially when he found out Antonia was a Spanish aristocrat with swirling blood!
Mikey decided to try the Blonde Barbier.
Our tasting notes show that Al noted that the Witte Antonia was “refreshingly good”. On the other hand, Mikey was not too impressed impressed with his Blonde Barbier, “Didn’t love it… Insipid, thin, lacking character, forgettable, shall I go on?”
Meanwhile I was obsessing over the white balance on my new camera, trying to find a setting that would give a truest rendering of the colour of our cloudy Witte Antonia wheat beer. One thing we all agreed on was that the Dutch Onion Soup was as good as it sounded on the menu. Address: Kloveniersburgwal 6, a short walk east of the Dam, Amsterdam’s main plaza.
