    Does anyone know this brewery located in Oudeschild on the island of Texel?

    I've been to the brewery about three years ago when on vacation in Holland. It was a cold and rainy day in the middle of summer (as usual around these parts) and so we decided to take the ferry from Den Helder and pay a visit to this brewery which I read about before in some tourist flyer.

    Anyway, I remember it was a great thing, taking the brewery tour and getting to taste a few shots of most types afterwards in their brewpub. I also took home a gift box with 5 different types, 2 bottles for each.

    Now I thought I could order some of their beers, but it seems like their distribution is very limited. There are just two stores and a couple of bars in the Ruhr area in Germany where this is sold. Does anyone know how to get these?

    Well, above all. Just as a recommendation: their beers are great! All of them have a slight hint of salty flavor due to the groundwater they use being filtered by the salty dunes of the coast. So, if you're anywhere near Amsterdam, it's about a one hour drive to Den Helder, you take an expensive ferry from there and you're almost there. www.speciaalbier.com
