Beer Boats ~ Utrecht's Unique Supply Scheme!
My favorite Dutch city Utrecht has a lovely center with a very famous Old Canal or Oudegracht running one floor below street level. Until the growth of motor vehicles this was the floating way to deliver goods and remove waste. But in an effort to reduce road congestion and unnecessary emissions, the boats are back -- Beer Boats -- to deliver frozen and chilled goods and perishable foods and, of course, Beer!
