I started to wander over to the west of Amsterdam through De Wallen and towards Grachtengordel-West and ended up on Spuistraat where I found a small crêperie called Cocotte.
I noticed Ribsfactory as I was heading to Gollem Amstelstraat for a couple of beers and took a mental note to head here for dinner.
After around 6 hours on the train travelling from Lyon to Amsterdam with a quick change in Brussels I found myself back in Amsterdam and looking to get into the beer scene again. Last year I had many beers at Cafe Gollem Amstelstraat, which was closeby to my hotel, so I headed there again.
Hôtel ibis Styles Lyon Centre – Gare Part Dieu is an OK hotel but set in a bit of a wasteland. While the room and hotel in general were fine there’s just nothing, apart from the train station closeby which, when I was there, was surrounded by construction activities.
After my long, and might I add superb, lunch at Le Cabaretier I went for a bit of a walk through old Lyon and eventually ended up at Place Ennemond Fousseret where there’s a bar called BerThoM. The same chain I drank at in Montpellier. Knowing the selection of beers would be good I headed on in.
