First Beer in Amsterdam
De Prael Nick & Simon IPA (6.4%). Nice and hoppy but with definitely a Dutch/Belgian yeast character.
And where did I have it?
In de Wildeman, of course.
Lots of new beers on the list to try -- plus some old favorites. With only one jet-lagged afternoon I may have to perform some triage.
My hotel -- the Old Nickel had St. Bernardus Grottenbier on tap, which was mighty temping but by the time I came downstairs all the seats at the bar were taken by locals drinking their lunch, so I'll save that one for a night cap.
