Did you see this recent thread?


It might give you some places to do further research.

In general, the trend in Dutch-brewed beers, especially in hotter seasons of the year, is toward hoppy and bitter. The whiskey barrel aged brews are also something of a current trend.

If you want smoother and a little sweeter, a Belgian dubbel or tripel would be worth trying. But it literally is a matter of personal taste. Maybe starting out at out a place like In de Wildeman, where they have many choices, will let you sample and talk to you about the beers, would save you some time and money and give you a better overall experience.

If you are going to Amsterdam, I'm assuming you are talking about Dutch beers. Try this place. Over 100 beers with over 30 on tap, all Dutch.


Same guy owns this place. I have not tried it but it is recommended on this site often.


Use Google Translate if you need it.

Yeah, try German 'weizener' beer, all kinds of brands make it. (For example Erdinger, but even Hertog Jan weizener is that same type of beer).

Also, beer by brewer "Texels" is nice and their beer "Skuumkoppen" is smooth and easy (in my opinion).

If you want to try beer brewn in Amsterdam then try "Zatte" by brewery "Brouwerij 't IJ", although that has a bit of a bitter tang maybe.
