One part of being a biersommelier is knowing your classics. Therefore I want to present a beer to you once in a while. Today that's going to be Boltons Ur-Alt
I have a library full of games. At its height it contained almost 500 different ones, these days I brought it back to 225 games according to board game geek. This time it's time for a print and play game: Mushroom Ale.
It's autumn and I live in the Netherlands, which makes it impossible to ignore bock beers. Bock beers in the Netherlands are based on their German counterparts but is now a proper all Dutch beerstyle on its own.
I told you about the Dutch championships, well, a week ago I was at the world championships Biersommelier! Dennis Kort, Pepijn van der Waa and Hubert Hecker were the Dutch delegation and Maurus, Uwe, Frans and I joined them as their cheerleaders.
A side story on the world cup. During the championships we visited Florence and Bologna as well
As of last week we are with almost 250 certified biersommeliers in the Netherlands. A week ago Tastewise and I guided a group of biersommeliers through beery Eindhoven.
I'm writing about so many other cultures, I should write something about Dutch beer culture as well, and don't make the mistake that it doesn't exist, it does :) It's…
As soon as I heard that I passed the level 1 exams I signed up for level 2. Level 2 consists of 12 (actually 13) detailed lessons about everything you can imagine beer related, but like every course in the end you have just scratched the surface.
I have a library full of games. Naturally I have several games about beer and once in a post I'd like to tell more about one of them. Again a very travel sized game this post: Hip Hops (also known as Brews of the World).
This post is way overdue, but Eindhoven is my home town, and certainly needs to be here. Besides, Eindhoven has such an interesting beer history!
