Lusciously long summer evenings are nigh and there is no better way to spend the end of a warm day in the park or by the water. Before you go there though, I would suggest you stop by Plan B, Rotterdam West’s best-stocked special beer supplier. I stumbled across this little and pretty hidden beer paradise when out on a random evening stroll around my neighbourhood and was immediately sucked in by the sight of shelf upon shelf of unknown beers.
There is something for everyone in Plan B, from light, fruity and summery beers to deep brown and heavy and from all over the world. The bottles and names are almost as interesting as the flavour, if not more so, and I spent at least an hour picking my favourite label. If you are overwhelmed by the choice and don’t know what would suit you best just ask the friendly and knowledgeable staff to recommend something according to the description of your taste. If you still can’t choose you could attend the beer tasting that is held every first Thursday of the month (keep an eye on their Facebook page).
So enjoy your picnic, although you might want to buy your beers beforehand or have ice and a cooler handy because most of them are not kept chilled.
