The Netherlands needs more free houses to provide better beer choices for customers – discuss

From DutchNews. A heads-up for beer lovers looking for more in Holland than Heineken and Grolsch (Grolsch now owned by SAB Miller). Pooey.

Beer prices are rising and affecting many landlords because their pubs and cafes are essentially properties renting from a particular brewery.

Who knew Netherlands had a free house shortage? Mind you, any time I see an umbrella or awning with a beer name on it, I assume that’s the only brand sold there. Same holds true in the Czech Republic – Staropramen, Pilsner Urquell, etc all have pubs and cafes serving only their brand.

Maybe just think of it as a way to choose your pub faster?
