I was so excited to start the tour! I had been looking forward to seeing this factory for weeks.
Meredith and I at the start of the tour
Yea- we are cheesy!
I really loved all of the Heineken paraphernalia including this original glass Heineken Button
This room showed the fermenting process- water, barley, hops, and yeast
This was the original boiling room
The factory was beautiful! Check out these stained glass windows
I felt we kept getting free pints of beer every 10 minutes during the tour. It was great. At the half way mark we really enjoyed ourselves.
The bottling room- you can make your own bottle with your name on it!
Apparently Heineken sponsors a lot of the 007 movies. They had an entire room dedicated to James Bond throughout the years
The tour had some really neat activities and was very interactive. We were able to send a video message home to our friends at home and as you can see in the picture below I didn't mind making a fool of myself.
Bottles, and Kegs, and cans oh my!
This room was so cool. These pod chairs showed all of the Heineken commercials since the 50's. It was as if we were in a space ship.
Worlds longest foosball table

The tour was only 15 Euro- and the cost of admission included 3 beers. If you visit Amsterdam this is a must see but plan on spending a minimum of 2 hours at the factory. The tour itself takes around 2 hours and the gift shop is really good. You can even get your name engraved on Heineken pint glass. I got my brother and his dog matching monogramed pint glasses! Bye Bye Amsterdam- I'll be back in January. Until next time, I will see you on the internet.
