On Tap

Taps

There is a restaurant in Citygarden with an odd name, more about which presently. You can't find a Budweiser at the bar. 4 Hands, Urban Chestnut, Ferguson and Schlafly are local breweries. (No idea about Sofie and the generic wood handles.) The variety of beer in this country is so much more interesting with microbreweries springing up everywhere. We don't drink a lot of beer but we think mass-produced American lager (like, say, the whole Anheuser-Busch lineup) is swill. Our favorite is Schlafly's Kölsch, made in the style of Cologne (Köln), Germany.

Its worldwide. The breweries jump out of the ground like mushrooms. For sure here in amsterdam. So you can await some very pretty surprises.

We've got our share of microbreweries here as well- it can be tough for them to make inroads into the market though.

What??? A restaurant in St. Louis without a Bud? I thought that was illegal. ;-)

Same story here, he have many new small breweries that make excellent beer.
