Can you still get Orangeboom? Last place I saw it was some sort of Dutch bar in London's fashionable West End

Can you still get the Grolsch bottles with the ceramic tops and the rubber rings? Those rubber rings make great guitar locks and I am even prepared to drink the cabbage water beer in order to get them

Pubs with Shepherd Neame ales will have it, I think, thought I've not been in such pubs since a) leaving Farringdon, so no longer at the Betsy and b) their WC 2006 campaign made me boycott them.

Yes, last time I was in the Bishop's Finger just east of Smithfield, they had Oranjeboom on tap. In case anyone was mental enough to select that ahead of the Master Brew.

I've got a book on beer that reckons the swing-top Grolsch is the original and best, shipped over from Holland, and otherly capped versions are inferior franchises. I dunno if that's actually true though.

Heh, we recorded an entire album under the influence of Orangeboom in one eight hour session. Our benevolent American label-owning buddies sent us the money to do it and we drank most of the studio time money.
We got the engineer pished as well.
Dynamite stuff.

'Right lads, when are you coming back to mix this?'

'Mix it? Fuck that, no money left.Just set a mix for the first track and let it run'.

Professionals, see?

Hic.

It's certainly still in De Hems on Gerrard Street - which may well be the Dutch bar that BOTD alludes to in his opening post.

It surprises me I can't find a picture on Google Images of Bros wearing Grolsch tops on their footwear. Bloody internet.

De Hems is where you go to watch Ajax games in London on a Sunday afternoon. I spent about an hour looking for it, about this time last year. I had no idea it was on Gerrard Street.

You can buy Oranjeboom in Amsterdam now, shows the global power of marketing I suppose. When I arrived here it would have been unthinkable to drink a Rotterdam bier round these parts.

It used to be brewed in Rotterdam, but it's made somewhere in Brabant now. I supposed that's acceptable in Amsterdam.

Are there any Rotterdam breweries left?

The way the NYC potheads use Grolsch bottle tops is most inventive.

Jupiler! Jupiler!

Oh wait, that's Belgian.

Ok, I didn't know that. That explains it.

"Are there any Rotterdam breweries left?"

The City council co-owned one, in an attempt keep brewing alive in the city, but it appears to be out of business as far as I can see.

This list of Dutch breweries list only that one, which is rather sad.

Well, I thought this imbelicic shite was bad news at the best of times, but going into a tournament in germany, associating themselves with beer, violence and bellicose English nationalism was asinine. They replied that it was all 'tongue in cheek'. Fucking wankers.

They are all despicable, though the second one is at least mildly witty.
