It is one of the world’s greatest beers. Where can you enjoy it? At some of the world’s greatest bars, of course. Naturally, you can also enjoy it at home. But, if you are able to travel and visit the place where Heineken originated, you might want to stop in and have one at one of the best bars to drink it.
Amsterdam’s has lots to see and do. It is one of the greatest cities to bike through. When you visit, make a stop at as many pubs as you can to enjoy its pilsners. For the best bar experience in the world, stop over at the Heineken Experience. The brewery closed in 1988 due to excessive demands, but since the beer originated here in 1964, the Experience was built to keep its tradition flowing.
There are four levels of attractions to see, including a spot where you can experience it being brewed and bottled. The Brew U ride is one of the most popular attractions. You can also visit the historic brew room to see the copper vats where the brewing is done. At the end of the tour, you get a glass of beer. This is a self-guided tour so you have the freedom to take everything in at your own pace.
You also get to visit the World Bar. This is a comfortable bar where you can enjoy more beer and enjoy the panoramic videos with scenes all around the world. The table where you put your beer has an interactive map on it. It is fun, but you might have to stand as the World Bar gets packed fast.
The bartenders there will be happy to answer any questions you have. If you want souvenirs of your trip, the gift shop has them for you. From shot glasses to t-shirts, you can take home something to remember your visit to Amsterdam’s original pilsner brewery.
You can also visit the corporate bar, The Intersection, which opened in 2010. At the brewer’s U.S. office, there are happy hours and World Cup parties. There are seven draft beers on tap all of which are from Heineken. Some are brands you will know and others come all the way from South America or Central America. Drink and watch the game or play the game – there are foosball tables available for you to play at.
Can you make it to Ho Chi Minh city? If you can, make it to The World of Heineken, another great spot that commemorates this delicious beer. You get an interactive experience of the brewing process in the form of a 4 D movie ride. The World Bar here has 360-degree views of the city at the top of the Bitexco Financial Tower. It is one of the highest Heineken bars in the city if not Vietnam.
This beer is one of the most famous and popular in the world. Why not try it while traveling at one of the great bars that commemorate it?
