A Neat Experience

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Wizeazzgurl on July 9, 2008

Let me start off by saying that I am not a big drinker, I do not even like beer, but my best friend did and we had heard that this place deserves a visit. Oh boy! Was everyone right.

As soon as you walk in, you immediately know you are going to have a good time. With the price of admission you get 3 tickets, 2 for beers and one for a gift.

You walk through and read and see some pretty interesting things. Let me take this chance to tell you that this is not a active brewery, this probably was back in the day, but it is more of a museum. Here is the good part, you get to the first bar, where you take your ticket, give it to the bartender and he gives you a nice size glass of the freshest beer I have tasted, beleive me I have tasted a couple of my friends beers and till then they all seemed the same. I do not know if the alcohol content is differ in the Netherlands but this ONE glass got me a little fuzzy.....

There are some great pics to be taken inside. The gift shop is nice and the whole thing is a cool little experience. Take into consideration I am not big on museums or any of that sort.

In regards to children, I personally do not think the kids would benefit at all from this unless they are interested in seeing the horses.
