Our stroll led us to the ‘people’s’ part of town where our favourite Dutch beer site had recommended several pubs. Ledig Erf looked like a great place, even from a distance, and in we went.
There were a bewildering number of taps.
The bartender offered us up samples of three or four different beers until we decided.
I chose a 4 star Bush Blond, listed in my notes as ‘the boozy, sweet taste of Belgium pouring down my throat’. Al chose a Brigand which he gave 3 3/4 stars. At 9% the bartender told Al he’ll be dancing, whoopee. Mine was 10.5% so I could be dancing too, or stumbling, or perhaps ‘slaapen’.
Another shot of this pub that carries a lot of different beers.
I love to take photos of neon beer signs and there were a bunch of them! Best of all, this pub was where we met Guus and Sanne, and went out on a beer adventure.
