Continuing along our route, we'll visit a selection of favorite local bars and food stops. There's a beer for every palate in Amsterdam, from golden blondes and full-bodied wheat ales, to complex IPAs, among many others. To keep ourselves energized, we'll pair our beers with typical snacks—depending on how adventurous we're feeling, we might try sausage, fresh herring, and fries the way Amsterdammers like them. We'll also stop for a Kroket, a deep-fried Dutch guilty pleasure.
There's another side to Amsterdam's brewing tradition that can't be left out: jenever. This distilled spirit, lightly scented of juniper berry, comes in subtle colors from golden to clear. Depending on whether it is oude or jonge, old or young jenever, which is determined by the method of distillation, the liquor takes on very different tasting notes. We'll have the chance to choose from a whole menu, including distilled fruit versions. The tulip-shaped glass will be placed on the counter in front of us, full to the brim. That's our cue to "bow" to the jenever and bend down for the first sip.
Where do we meet? Where does it end?
Yes - but the route of the tour will be adapted. This tour visits several small, intimate venues, some of which simply can't accommodate large groups. For groups of larger than 6, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice about alternative options.
