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.
I said I would come back to the beer side of Eindhoven. And what better way to start than to talk to someone who wanted to write about beery side of Eindhoven as well and ended up with writing a book about the breweries of the past in Eindhoven?
When I visited Brussels last year it wasn't specifically for the beery things. The main beery thing of the trip was a Gueuze brewery, namely Cantillon.
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.
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.
Burton-on-Trent is historically speaking a very important beer city and it is mainly known for this extensive brewing history, with its height around the 18th and 19th centuries.
I like reading a lot! So much so, that we have a library in our house (hey, we had a spare room). So of course I also love reading books about beer.
The interesting part about Schneider is that they hold their fans in special regard. They even have fanclubs all over the world which they support and every year there's a fanclubtreffen. This year the treffen was in Eindhoven.
