Unique character, unique beer
Beer used to be consumed as a thirst-quencher thanks to the water-purifying properties of alcohol. These days, however, it’s seen as a way to infuse flavour into everyday life. Locally brewed craft beer is one of the calling cards of Marineterrein Amsterdam, which is bringing the production process closer to consumers. Homeland Brewery Amsterdam plans to test out ancient beer recipes in the near future and re-brew the winners.
