Another victim of geography-this time being overshadowed by neighbors Germany and Belgium-The Netherlands never seems to come up on lists like this, but rest assured that the Dutcch know how to brew great beer. Amsterdam is the best place to sample it all, with great bars like Proeflokaal Arendsnest featuring nothing but Dutch beer and craft brewers in the city like Oedipus, Brouwerij 't IJ or Troost brewing with enough skill to compete with anyone on the continent. Oh, and this is to say nothing of the city's most famous big-name beers that are great for a "when in Rome" order: Heineken and Amstel.
