This week it has been exactly five years since Casper opened bottle shop De Bierbrigadier in Eindhoven! I have known Casper all my life, so it was extra fun to interview him.
As promised I would take a closer look at all the more recent beer venues in Eindhoven. The oldest one still in business is De Bierprofessor.

One of the things that can be a part of being an international biersommelier is being asked to be a judge in a beer competition. I was asked to judge in the Dutch Beer Challenge of 2020 and of course I said yes!
