Beersaturday Quiz, Dutch special! 5 Hive to be Won 😎

in BEER5 months ago (edited)

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.

Good luck!

It’s time to get our quiz on!!

Question 1

Trappist ales are more commonly brewed in Belgium but the Netherlands have 2 of their own. Can you name the 2 Dutch Trappist beers?

Question 2

The Netherlands also have their own Bok style beer. To be an official Bok beer, there are only 4 months of the year in which Bok can be sold. Which four months are they?

Question 3

If you’re in the Netherlands and you order a “Biertje”, what exactly are you ordering?

Question 4

Translate this Dutch proverb.

“Wanneer het bier is in de man dan is de wijsheid in de kan”.

Question 5

How much was the ransom paid for the release of Freddy Heineken during his kidnapping in 1983?

Question 6

Who played the role of Freddy Heineken in the movie about his kidnapping?

Heineken that is it, that is the only answer I have!

🤣🤣 Sterling effort that one. I’ll let you know if you win 😬

I wasn't looking to participate in this week's, I wanted to sit back like the brew master I am and let the plebs have a go at this one. Nice to see more participants.

I might give it some more days and come back to see if any of them got it wrong and maybe take the price again if no one else is worthy after all I've done for them by giving them a headstart.

Yours Tipsily, Nevies.
