Iím a Belgian guy who is passionate about cooking, tasting, slowfood, regional products and beers! Thanks to ratebeer I started discovering foreign beers in 2010, shifting my focus from all Belgian beers to only new or discontinued Belgian beers and good foreign beers.
In 2013 I entered the top 5 of Belgian ratebeerians. Thereís many people to thank for that, numerous friends, family and couch surfers have brought me new country ticks from their travels or home. A lot of people have shared my bottles, thus saving my liver and my health. Some people have contributed a lot to my beer adventures, sometimes by sharing very rare and special beers with me, sometimes because of their nice company while having a beer. These are the people that come to mind first, donít feel offended if youíre not in the list. I always enjoy sharing a beer with everyone. Klaas for introducing me to foreign beer and teaching me to drink stouts, Bobochamp, Sebletitje, Martinus, Erwin, BelgBeerGeek, 77ships, Ajax25g, AdamJackson, JorisPPattyn, PriorL, Kraddel, Benzai.
From 2011 to 2015 Iíve been president of our local beer society, De Gentse Biervereniging. (http://www.gentsebiervereniging.be) All of my reviews on ratebeer are my personal opinion at the given moment, honestly based on the beer that was in front of me. My reviews reflect in no matter the opinion of De Gentse Biervereniging, nor my opinion as (former) president.
