So, I’ll be in these two cities in about two weeks and have already done my research for good beer places here.

What I’m wondering is if there are some places to come across some quite rare country ticks there?

Thanks for any input

A random grocery store in Montmartre netted me a Togolese tick. There should be ethnic stores around with just that.

Looking at your country tick list you already have all the country ticks I have found in both those places so can’t help but good luck!

In Amsterdam? Absolutely nothing.

Thanks for the answers guys. I thought I’ll give it a shot by asking.

Any other cool beer suggestions that are not top on the RB places

As said, in Paris, look for random African grocery stores (I found Ivory Coast, for example).

Then think about which countries were colonies (or DOM-TOM), and look for restaurants (for example, Senegal, Reunion Islands etc).

If you find it, can you bring me one Marko? Or we can do a trade when you’re back home :)

What about Surinam, and the island states of the former Netherlands Antilles?

He already rated the one Surinamese beer available in Amsterdam (Parbo), which is why I didn’t suggest it. You can find it reliably at Waterkant in those colossal bottles.

I’ve never seen bottles from Aruba, Bonaire, or Curaçao in Amsterdam before.

In Amsterdam? Roest (a factory turned bar with a beach out back), In ’t Aepjen (for some reason, it has a really poor rating here; a gorgeous old wooden building in the centre, especially convenient for a last couple of rounds before your train), Soundgarden (if you’re in need of a relaxed punk bar), and Foodhallen (upscale food court; one of the bars in the back-right corner has a pretty good selection of local crafts, usually including at least Oedipus and Two Chefs amongst others).

You wouldn’t know where to point me more precisely for Ivory Coast, would you?
