At Foreach Brewing we have partnered with Maarten on various occasions. His vast knowledge and experience in the beer and beverage culture, beer style, and flavor profiling have helped us tremendously. One such example was a project of developing a custom beer for a client. Maarten not only delivered a fun and engaging tasting session but also guided the group to identify the characteristics that constitute their favorite beer flavor. This resulted in a great beer that is very much loved by the client. Besides his impeccable professionalism, Maarten is also a very friendly and approachable person. We frequently received great advice from him during our recipe development and product lineup. We value Maarten’s contribution greatly and definitely will recommend him to any personnel or organization that is interested in beer tasting events, beer sommelier, or in fact any beer related business.

Kun & Stefan, Foreach Brewing

Maarten is an excellent employee whom we hired many times to represent our brands at beer festivals and tasting events. He is a very trustworthy, punctual, friendly, and dependable team member who is eager to help others and ensure a cohesive well-functioning team environment. Maarten was always willing to put in the extra effort and time when needed without hesitation and lead by example. Furthermore, he is excellent at interacting with consumers and has an unique ability to communicate his vast knowledge of beer in an easy to understand and approachable manner. I can confidently say that ANY brand or employer will be proud to have Maarten represent them!
