Erik Bouman - Klein Duimpje
Erik Bouman is one of the brew masters of Klein Duimpje. At Klein Duimpje they are not afraid of an experiment or two. Think of coffee, speculaas or rye beers. For Bierberaad he will bring the Gagel IPA, instead of using hops Erik brewed with the herb Bog Myrtle (Gagel in Dutch). The Bog Myrtle has been used for beer brewing since the 10th century, usually when hops are not available. However, it is also known of triggering aggression. This and more beer brewing herbs regarded as poisonous or aphrodisiac during his talk.
