Cracked Kettle

Calling out all beer lovers! The Cracked Kettle was a pure find in Amsterdam. A dark, wood shelved store which is located in the middle of a tiny street near Spuistraat and Singel is an amazing source of beer goodness. Stacked shelves hold bottles of all shapes and sizes and are arranged by country, with the main emphasis on Europe: Dutch, Belgian, German, Scottish, UK, Scandinavian, Trappist, and then a small selection of elsewhere including the US, African and Eastern Europe. All the beers are from Microbreweries, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microbrewery
and all styles and methods (ales, brown beers, lagers, stouts, wheat, blondes, etc.)

Sorry for the bad pictures, I was in a hurry. But check out the website, www.crackedkettle.com for fun tidbits of information, suggestions, ratings and what's best, they ship anywhere! Perfect holiday gift perhpas...
