Dutchmans

Dutchmans is a small Amsterdam microbrewery with an obviously unique name. It is not just a novelty beer, though. Dutchmans is an artisan brewery, producing all of its own ingredients and creating unique beers through an original process that includes two stages of fermentation and an age-old method of brewing malts. As a result, the beers are unlike anything humans have tasted before and they taste amazing. But is Dutchmans a business that can work in this new, digital world?At Dutchman Brauhaus, we believe that every meal should be a special one, no matter what you choose to eat. Each meal on our menu has been hand chosen and created using traditional recipes you may know and love.

It is a deciduous vine with purple-striped curving pipe-shaped flowers which give rise to winged capsular green fruits. If given the right conditions it will flower profusely. After it blooms, the plant sends out new green heart-shaped leaves. The vines grow from rhizomes to a length of over twenty feet and can become quite thick in circumference at maturity. In the wild it will spread out over open ground or sprawl over other plants. This plant is common in moist woods and along streams in northern and central California, usually below 1,500 ft. The flowers have an unpleasant odor which is attractive to tiny carrion-feeding insects. The insects crawl into the convoluted flowers and often become stuck and disoriented for some time, picking up pollen as they wander. Most eventually escape; the plant is not insectivorous as was once thought. Fungus gnats (Mycetophilidae) may prove to be the effective pollinators. G.L. Stebbins suggested (California Native Plant Soc. Newsletter, 1971 Vol. 7 p. 4-5) that pollination by deceit is presumed. (Source: calscape.org)
