As a tribute to this years #hivefest being held in Amsterdam, we will be enjoying a Dutch themed #beerquiz!
Whether it be drinking or producing, the Dutch are certainly no stranger to God’s amber nectar and with beer-behemoths like Heineken, Amstel, and Grolsch all originating from The Netherlands, it would seem that everyone on the planet is equally as familiar with the Dutch’s brew.
Besides the household name beers, the Netherlands have a strong presence in the craft ale market and an increasing number of independent breweries popping up all over the Netherlands. Hopefully, plenty of this fine ale found its way to hivefest, where I’m sure it was appreciated by @detlev and the #beersaturday enthusiasts who joined him at hivefest.
Let’s Go Dutch!
This week’s #beersaturday quiz has a prize of 5 Hive and the all important title of Brewmaster General.
As this is a Dutch inspired quiz I will be experimenting with the rules this week…
INSTEAD of requiring all ten questions answering correctly, this week I will award the victory to the person who answers the most questions correctly.
You will still only get one attempt to answers the questions for this weeks quiz, so read carefully the before you submit your answers.
Submit your answers in the comments section of this post.
