We all know the dutch love beer and for over centuries they have been importing and exporting it to the world.
Not much has changed since the heydays so we thought we share some amsterdam history and a free walk
The Bierkaai (beer quay ) was the quay in Amsterdam where the barrels of beer arrived and the porters
who worked there would then load and unload the heavy barrels of beer.
The inhabitants of this part of Amsterdam were known as invincible fighters.

We have added an old painting for you to take with you to compare.
