Ther bigger Dutch breweries are trying some new beers as well. In the lager dominated beermarket an unfiltrated beer should be something special according to Heineken after the release of Amstel and Brand unfilterred lager.
I added some new material from brewery Barbarossa, a closed brewery in Groningen, and made a new page with old bottles I have from this brewery.
I also added a page with all the coasters from this brewery, closed in the sixties. More >>>
