A Tasty Bokbier Festival

A couple of weeks ago (the weekend of the street market saint and crunchy fall leaves), Christian and I ventured into the city center for Amsterdam's Bokbier FestivalBokbier is sweet, dark autumn beer and is really tasty during the harvest season. What was meant to be just a few samplings turned into a 3-hour bokbier extravaganza! It was early Saturday evening and the place had tons of beers to sample. A few hours later, we walked out of the place tipsy and smiley--we had become full-on autumn beer enthusiasts! Throw in some Thai takeout on the way home and we labeled it a pretty satisfying fall day :). 

I'm going to kick off this weekend with one last bokbier--winter is just around the corner after all ;). 

Happy weekend!

This looks like way too much fun. And now I desperately want a beer. Or many.
