    I don't know many Dutch words, but I recognized "soep" as Dutch for "soup". Out of curiosity, I went to an online translator, and got a good laugh! :D:D Mark, am I right that the name of the brewery can be translated as "Primordial Soup"??

    You're right with the translation GT:D I don't know how you would use 'primordial', but 'oer' is also used as stereotypical / how it should or used to be as well as mother of all soups :p

    The funny thing is they already used this name before they started brewing in an old soup factory.

    That is comical that they now use an old soup factory, Mark! :p
    Here's a definition for "primordial soup": a solution rich in organic compounds in the primitive oceans of the earth, from which life is hypothesized to have originated.
    Sort of the mother of all life. ;) Oersoep brews beer from which life arises!

    I'll bet the Dutch "oer" must be related to the "ur" used in English to mean original or primitive or earliest, as in "urtext" and "ur-civilization". "Ur" is German, I think.

    Thank you for the kind words @WhittlinAway. I'll find out tomorrow if my 4 legged furry friend needs ACL surgery or not.
    In the mean time I did some work for my sister today and refused cash payment. My brother in law is a pilot and flies private so I was able to score some of these. I'm hanging out with Charlie's last knife in anticipation(and hope) of his new one.

    If you just had the knife with the bottles it would look huge!

    First time all weekend we didn’t have somewhere to be or something to do. Decided to take full advantage. @Shock, good luck with your furry friend. Hoping for the best.

    Am I the only one that sees irony in the fact that @Jack Black is drinking New England style IPA?

    This Blueberry Blonde is the perfect summer beer. Refreshing. Not too heavy. Relatively low in calories. Flavorful. And somehow always manages to taste cold.

    How about a traditional knife (rosewood lambsfoot, A. Wright & Son, Sheffield--thanks, Taylor!) with a traditional beer?
    From Holland. Since 1615.
    (Only thing I don't like about it is the EU 11.2 oz bottle, cheating me of .8 oz!)

    Ah yes, the Dutch Wikipedia page of primordial soup is titled oersoep. Nice :)
