Of the Netherlands: Bar Time

Latvia has a few good bars and some pretty good beer. But Holland is paradise for bar-lovers. There were tons of cool, old, atmospheric bars everywhere, very few of them of the chic and pretentious persuasion. The Dutch beer was good - actually Heineken on tap was surprisingly good in comparison to the middling stuff you get in bottles. But the real joy was the number of bars featuring beer from next-door Belgium. Every bar had at least a couple abbey beers. The place pictured here had hundreds.
