    Most beer sold as Heineken in Amsterdam is Fake

    DutchAmsterdam.nl


    If you order a Heineken beer in an Amsterdam pub or restaurant there is a good chance that you’ll be served an unbranded brew instead.
    The beer flows from Heineken owned- and labeled taps and is served in Heineken glasses, but in reality comes from unbranded barrels originating from brewers with overcapacity in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
    Other brand-name beers are affected by the practice as well.
    Amsterdam cafe

    Many cafe and restaurant-holders quietly make the switch because they can save 25 to 50 euros on barrel while the customers do not taste the difference, Amsterdam newsdaily Het Parool reports.
    “In the Netherlands, hospitality licenses are tied to breweries,” NIS news writes. “Someone who wants to take over a Heineken cafe can seldom or never switch to another brand. In any case, a bulk contract must be made with a brewer.
    These contracts are however so unattractive that beer in the supermarket is often cheaper than beer from the trucks that the brewer sends.


    Heineken states it does not know the extend of the swindle, but says it annually catches some fifty catering businesses involved in barrel-switching.


    Insiders in the drinks trade estimate that some sixty percent of the established hospitality businesses are involved in the deception.


    One trader told Het Parool that on and around Leidseplein you have a fifty percent chance that you get a genuine Heineken beer.


    The generic beers explicitly advertise the fact that their bayonet connector is the same as that of Heineken.

    That's probably why it passes as drinkable in Holland (because it's summat else) but everywhere else in the world it's shite.

    The Dutch should stick to clogs, tulips, cannabis and self harming surrealists.

    Cheers

    Grolsch was and always will be the best beer in Holland.
    I worked in the North of Holland for a couple of years where Grolsch was the local brew.
    Its one of the best beers I have ever drank. the visit to the brewery in Enschede was a good day out too.

    I've started to dabble in a little more beer swigging lately as the father in-;aw insists i drink with him on a Saturday! Out of what i have drunk, Heineken is much better than Tiger, Leo or that Chang piss.

    Where can i buy IPA GREEN KING?
