Dutch Republic Lager

type: Lager
origin: Holland?
price: $3.99 at Fresh and Easy
abv: 4.8

I don't know about this beer. Never heard of it, their website sucks and just mentions that they sell it at fresh and easy, and it tastes just like Heineken, but shit it's $3.99 for a 6 pack vs the $8 or so shitty Heineken is. Honestly you can't taste the difference between the two unless your in Amsterdam drinking Heineken on tap. It also says they won silver at the US Open Beer Championship, I would guess in the category mediocre beers that taste like other mediocre beers, or the Heineken look alike or...I mean shit it even has the same green bottle and similar logo. Basically if your a dumbass and want to buy a case of Heineken save yourself some money and buy this. Fresh and Easy also has Steel Kettle for $4 a 12 pack if you want a beer like Keystone or Naty (Natural Ice). Oh one more thing, it says 1581 on it even though the Brewery(fresh and easys storage closet) starting making them this year. Can they make a brewery next that tastes like Allagash but is cheap? if so I would be into that

  1. No, 1581 is the room number of the Fresh-n-easy janitor's closet that they keep the malted barley in. Elaine uses it too, to order Chinese take-out.

  2. Just bought this today...1581 is the date of the start of the dutch republic. I also bought the Steel Kettle, which I will review soon (moral of the story, totally worth 4 bucks)

  3. The name Dutch Republic is actually not a brand in the Netherlands, the name is created for import only. Dutch Republic is brewed by Bavaria Beer in the Netherlands.

  5. The beer is made based off of a recipe back 1581. More like a tribute beer that is kind of a Heineken knock off.
