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. 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 and I could organise something for you

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.

  • Historical brewing and the preHistorisch Dorp; part 2
    In July 2021 Monique, Frank and I experimented with medieval brewery in our beloved museum preHistorisch Dorp Eindhoven. The goal was not to brew a drinkable beer (although that would have been nice) but to show people how brewing could have been done back then. Based on our earlier research we decided to use hot stones this time.
  • Brewing at New Year’s Eve
    This year we wanted to do something different. We being my best friend and I. We wanted to try out a ready made brew kit. After some research we decided on a beer brew kit by Brewferm which we ordered from Brouwland.
  • Board game: Biergarten
    Biergarten is a tableau building/tile laying game, a bit like Alhambra or Carcassonne. You place cards in front of you, making your own beer garden.
  • Beer: HEMA Tompouce Ale
    So, this was a thing in the Netherlands this year. Our wholesome Dutch store HEMA decided to launch their own beer!
