Amsterdam's latest addition to the beer brewing industry is brouwerij De 7 Deugden (The 7 Virtues), which is tucked away on the outskirts of New West. Although all of the machinery and equipment doesn't occupy more space than a large garage, the beer is simply wonderful. Owner Garmt is one of those guys who could no longer resist the tempting call from his inner self and we'd just like to personally thank the beer gods for this fortuitous wake-up call. His contribution to a happier life for Amsterdammers is a selection of six beers, all of which have a unique taste. The seventh brew, which makes the name of this brewery sound more logical, is a seasonal beer. This is largely reliant on the time of the year, Garmt's mood or whatever else influences his creative mind and palate. If you'd like to take a tour of the place you have to call ahead and arrive in a group of at least four people. For €5/person you can taste all six regular brews served with three types of cheeses. You can't go wrong with that!
