Welcome to my adventures in the world of beer

Like every person born in the 60s, 70s and 80s in the Netherlands I grew up in the beer wastelands. It was a time where pils/lager was synonym to beer. Needless to say I didn’t begin my alcoholic adventures with beer, but I got there eventually and I even decided to study beer. Now I’m an international biersommelier. You can read more about me here.

I love to organise beer tastings, beer walks and other beer activities in Dutch (Nederlands) and English and I could organise something for you as well. My home town is Eindhoven, but travel is no problem.

I also love to travel around for beer and research the subject more. You can find those adventures in my blog or on the dedicated page.

I’m from Eindhoven, so of course there’s a dedicated page to Eindhoven.
