What you'll do

Hops? Yeast? Barley? Are a pilsener and lager the same thing? What is a triple beer? I had all these questions when I started too. I knew all about drinking beer but not what the differences were.
Now, here's the chance to clear all of the differences and questions up. You will be taught by an expert about 5 different kinds of beers is a little 2-hour crash course! A Pilsener, Porter, IPA, Weizen and a triple. All of these will be explained and of course, tasted! Better yet, all the beers we will be trying are from the Netherlands and 4 of them from this Amsterdam itself! We'll be happy to explain how to get there and where they are.
So come along and learn something about all those beers you've never tried before!!

Hello There! Adriaan here, long time bartender and even longer time beer lover here, I started working a long time in a beer bar where I learnt the basics. As this progressed I moved into cocktails which I found I was very very good at. Now I found that beer doesn't get the same love it used in the same way as cocktails.
That's where I come in! I'm putting my years of experience and connections together to bring you the beers and knowledge all in one place!
All you will have to do would be to drink some beers, enjoy yourself and walk away with some more knowledge about what you order at the bar!
I look forward to showing you the Brewing World!!!!

Knowing that I am educated in the world of beer; I wanted to expand more of my knowledge of beers from around the world. This tasting gave me a good reminder of the difference in beers depending on the location. There’s a bit of everything for anyone through this experience. I say give it a try and be open minded.

Ned was great. Funny, passionate, and a lot of experience. People were there for fun and it was a small intimate get together. Great time!

Was not quite what to expect when we got there. But, Ned and Adriaan were absolutely welcoming! If you’re new to beer and want to try to find something you like, or you’re a beer aficionado, you can find a new style or brand you enjoy.

Really fun experience with Ned (Ted?). Good knowledge of beers. Very interesting. Only improvement would be better communication about how to find the host. I stood outside until about 10 after waiting for Adriaan to show up, looking for people who match the picture, but the event is actually hosted by Ned or Ted.
