Do you still skate these days? I try to skate in the summer, but I have a back injury and can only skate for about 30 minutes. Then the pain is too big. I also have problems with one foot, just found out that it has been broken for more than 10 years. So I don’t really skate anymore, I’m too broken and old.
What are you doing these days? I have a little family. I’m married to former skateboarder Sybille and we have a son called Emil. He was born in September 2006. I also play disc golf; it is like golf, you know, for fat old men. I also work as a brewer at a microbrewery south of Copenhagen, called Bryghuset Braunstein. We also make whiskey, schnapps and gin.
It’s funny ‘cause since I’ve known you, you’re the guy drinking beer wherever you go. How did you get into home brewing, and how did you get the job you have now? Well, when I left Denmark I only knew lager beers, traveling opened my eyes to new kinds of beers, and I got interested in beers in a new way besides drinking them. Then I started home brewing and won gold and silver at the Danish championship, and shortly after I was a brewer at a real brewery. It all went really fast, from when I started brewing to when I was working at a brewery took less than a year.
How fortunate are you to have made careers out of two of your passions? You don´t get more lucky than that, I think.
What is your favorite part about being a brewer (besides the drinking)? I love experimenting, making big crazy beers.
