I would prefer anything Belgian or Irish, or many German beers too. And as many people in Holland I have no idea how on earth many people outside The Netherlands mistake a regular industrial product like Heineken for a ''high quality beer''.

Freddy knew: The late Freddy Heineken, known as much in Holland for his kidnapping as for his brand, took over his dad's business. He had studied marketing and he proved himself a master at it, turning a modest brewery into an empire.

Love this thread :lol: .... someone mentioned first a minor matter about a few private regions moving and connecting to mainland... what is worth a sherbet.

The following discussion about the one and only right and original way to serve it led fully logical to the definition of a Netherlands tomato consistence and flavor (or better the absence of it).

For sure, as here are mostly sailors debating, the keywords "Netherlands" and "Tomato" must without a doubt lead to the real thing: Beer!

So, all I wonder about is: Why did it need that much post to touch the final point? :shock:

Cheers!

Hmm. Just because debating is much more fun than getting to the point?

it may be a urban legend: Carlsberg had an advertising campaing running in France: "The French word for beer is Carlsberg"

to which Freddy countered by placing billboards next to them: "Carlsberg is the reason the French dring wine"
