amsterdam brewhouse

Summer is winding down but we should have a few more beautiful days to enjoy the city. If you have not yet checked it out, you should head down to the Amsterdam Brewhouse. They have a large indoor restaurant with large windows overlooking the lake and large patio including comfortable couches and muskoka chairs. Also, once you’ve picked your favourite one (or two), you can pick up some to take home from their store.

It took us a little while to get a server but once we did we had a great time. The view is absolutely perfect. They’re aren’t many places to take in that view and a local brew, at the same time. We were only there for drinks but they do have a nice food menu. They have a large selection of beers, all locally prepared. They also have a seasonal selection which is great to keep the customers coming back. They also have “flight passes” which are sets of 4 sample glasses. I got the variety of light beers:

blonde (my favourite on and off the patio), the 416, the orange weisse and the raspberry wheat

I loved the patio, and the indoor space was also very nice. I would highly recommend trying to make a trip down there while the weather is still nice.

Are you looking for a refreshing beverage to close out the summer? Betty’s vodka icec tea is absolutely wonderful. Its lightly carbonated and not overly sweet.  It comes in peach and raspberry. I’m personally not a peach fan, but they’re pretty good.  I love the raspberry ones. They make a great cottage/backyard/dock drink. And unlike the blackberry somersby, you can actually find it.

The countdown is on for yhe end of summer, u hope you can enjoy them before fall hits!
