EUROPE REVIEW TRAVEL

VIP Treatment at the Heineken Experience

Born in Amsterdam, raised by the world!

The Heineken Experience

The Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam doesn’t just brew beer for the general public but is also a sensational interactive tour through the dynamic world of Heineken – the Heineken Experience.

Whilst in Amsterdam last month I was lucky enough to enjoy an immersive, behind the scenes guided tour of the Heineken Experience in Amsterdam and explore the old brewery where Heineken was first brewed. Then the best bit, following the tour, a Heineken connoisseur takes you to an exclusive bar where you get to sample 5 premium beers, served with a fine selection of Dutch cheeses and traditional Dutch ‘bitterballen’. Scroll to see pictures from my visit.

Horses are as much a part of the Heineken history as the beer!

*Thank you to the Heineken Experience for inviting me to visit whilst I was in Amsterdam. I had a wonderful time, but as always I am 100% honest about my experiences. All opinions are my own!
