Yesterday I had the honour to be a judge for the Dutch Beer Challenge to taste a lot of wonderful beers and to meet a lot of colleagues and friends again (safely of course) I hadn’t seen for over a year! The winning beers will be known on May 12th!

Yay! A 9 for Social Responsibility/Sociale HygiΓ«ne ?

A fellow beer sommelier tipped me to do the Social Responsibility exam, so I did.
I passed today with a score of 38/40 πŸ˜€

I’m going to do something new. Or well, actually I already did it before, but in another format. What, you ask? I’ll tell you soon!


2021 March 1st

So close yet so far away! Last week I walked to the Belgian border, but being the well-behaved citizen I am, I did not cross it to visit the Achelse Kluis. The signs told me I could walk to De Koningshoeve instead, but that seemed to be a bit of an overkill. ?

So we just wandered the forests and all and ended with a beer in the sun


2021 February 19th

We did the Beer in a Box blind tasting! It was fun and very nicely done with the gorgeous labels and the chosen styles and such.

We guessed all the beer styles, and for the alcohol percentages we both guessed five correctly independently, but we corrected each other wrongly when we filled in the test site, so we finally had a score of 10 out of 12, which I’m happy with ??

Thank you, Bear!


2021 January 8th

We did a blind tasting of 23 German pilsners.

Never knew it was possible to safely transport 69 glasses in a backpack

2020 December 21th

I’m trying something new! A lot of times I want to share something small, but I don’t feel like writing a whole blog about it (yet). So I’m looking for a way to share short updates, maybe like this. Lets start with something fun: Have you ever listened to the Oettinger fan songs?
