I started seriously tasting and reviewing beer during fall of 2009 after tasting, about a year earlier, in november 2008, a Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer Rood. This was a decisive moment because it was the first time I enjoyed a high quality beer and it triggered a long hidden passion.
I have the chance to live in Québec, where the microbrewery industry is flourishing exponentially and I wish to use Beer Universe to promote our products and give people good reasons to travel over here and have a beer!
I was fortunate enough to lay my hands on more than 230 labels from over 20 countries so far, and I keep discovering new products everytime I can. I have a preference for Abts, Belgian Strong Dark Ales and Imperial Russian Stouts but I also enjoy discovering new beers of any style from around the world.
My ambition is to try out as many beers I can in the next 40 years.
I also like pairing beer and foods or better yet, incorporate beer in any given recipe to boost up flavours in stews and casseroles.
