Dictionary of Dutchness


Literally a booze shed, a zuipkeet is a place where youngsters, many below the official drinking age, go to drink beer and premixed cocktails, often to excess. Some 30% of local authority areas, mainly in rural areas, are thought to be home to at least one zuipkeet. Ministers want to see local councils clamping down on these drinking dens in an effort to reduce teenage binge drinking.
