So I have not been very good at blogging lately. But not to worry I have lots of posts and pictures planned so you all know what I have been doing while not blogging. Brent and I have been playing host the past couple weeks to some co-workers and his brother Ross. Ross' wife Katie came into town last Thursday(the 10th) to hang out. So on Friday her and I ventured out to Amsterdam and did some sightseeing. We decided that while the boys were at work we would check out the Heineken brewery- it technically is not the actual brewery, but a mock one they have set up called the Heineken experience. They have a lot of the brewing equipment on display that has been used throughout the history of the brand. We both now consider ourselves Heineken experts :)
Helping out by grinding the grains. They paid me with free beer
Apparently that is my best brewer face
They had a simulated beer pouring station, my results were "what a pity, you are no good at pouring beer" Shocking!!
Our ticket into the brewery included the tour, 2 beers and a canal boat ride from the brewery to the experience store where we could claim our free souvenir. Anytime you get the opportunity to take a canal ride on a nice day, DO IT!! It is such a cool way to see the city.
Next time anyone comes to visit I will teach them the proper way to drink Heineken!
