My name is Elke and I’ve got a passion for fine food, ecological and organic living and… beer!
Little girl between high stacks of beer crates
Back when I still was a small girl (which I am still, quite frankly ;)), my grandfather worked in a drink market. Sometimes I stayed there with him after school time until my mother came to pick me up after work.
I COMPLETELY ADORED this environment! Amazing! Running around between high stacks of beer crates, hiding so nobody could find me and putting empty crates on a cart and ride around with it…
All those different labels in various colours, all the smells and (ok, somewhat later) the tastes… I loved it all.
In short; I was fascinated early on by beers, a passion that remained throughout the years. In my last year of secondary education, the subject of my thesis was (tough guess) beer. Not much later my passion for ecological and biologic living sparked, which led to the decision to change the choice of my regular (daily) beer to organic beer. Why? Because of the rich flavour, free of chemical rubbish, ...
Passion for beer, passion for eco, passion for flavour!
Because of my passion for everything ecological, I started the eco lifestyle magazine Visita. When I visited several organic breweries in regards to that, I experienced the relentless fiery passion of these brewers. For some it was because they went through life ecologically responsible themselves, others’ discourse in the matter was that it was self-evident to use natural products exclusively since that benefits the flavour of the beer. And they are right!
Beer country Belgium
Another thing I came to realise was that Belgium, although being a renowned beer country for centuries, with rich traditions in beer brewery, is not as proud of its beers as it was. As well, the average Belgian doesn’t seem to be that familiar with the organic beer phenomenon, while it is far healthier to both body and mind, and also environmentally friendly. Often, the flavour transcends that of regular beers. Every true beer fanatic will recognize the fact that many organic beers have a lot to offer. Furthermore, there is something to be had for everyone: low to high quench factor, white to dark. This is why I decided to bundle these beers in one clear and orderly e-book...
