Mei Bokbier Festival in April

This is for anyone reading this blog who loves beer, lives near Amsterdam and wants to stand around in a church, drinking beer in a crowd composed of 90% men.
I went to the Winter Festival sponsored by Pint and it was held in an elementary school.
Gotta love the Netherlands.
The entrance is €5 and then you buy a ticket for the number of beers that you want to sample, €1.75 each.
Here's the info in Dutch:

And here are some photos from the Winter Festival.

Free glass with the entrance fee.


















Waiting to get a sample.

















Tipsy and excited about the self serve auto rinse. Luckily, my goretex fabric sleeve was up to the challenge.

















And the lovely institutional atmosphere of a school cafeteria.

  1. I think they have something similar in Germany where they celebrate Mai Bochbier.
