I wanted to visit the Beer Tasting Room In The Wildeman last year but I’d tried to visit on a Sunday which is the only day of the week that they are closed. This year I made sure to visit while they were open.
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.
My time in Amsterdam was coming to a close so for my last lunch I decided to find a small cafe by a canal for a bite to eat and a couple of beers after doing a circuit on one of the canal boats.
I jumped off at the Hermitage Amsterdam and headed over the Skinny Bridge made famous in the James Bond movie “Diamonds are forever” in 1971.
