The ancestral home of globally-recognized beers like Amstel, Heineken, and Grolsh, Amsterdam serves up dozens of styles, flavors, and labels.

Where to Drink: The Cracked Kettle is the place to buy your beer -- the shop stocks more than 500 types of beer and can ship internationally. If you want a place to sit down, try Cafe Gollem just across the road, serving nearly 200 beers; Cafe t'Arendsnest, which has 100 varieties of purely Dutch beers from 50 breweries (of the 100 types, 30 are on tap); and IJ Brewery, which has its very own windmill and a tour that lets you sample 10 organic beer varieties made on-site.

Average price for a pint: 3 Euros
