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. Even though the blog part of this page is on hold for now, you can still find previous adventures in my blog or on the dedicated page. And only the blog part is on hold, I am still active with all kind of beer related activities.

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

It was a good day at Van Moll Fest!

2024 June 26th

We visited the huge Boortmalt plant in the harbor of Antwerp with a group of 44 beer sommeliers, all ready to spend a day at (on top of?) this factory. It was a hot! day, but since a malting plant is a literal collection of ovens, it was not that bad. After spending some time inside, it actually felt cool outside.
And, we will do everything for beer, of course!
