Do Bongers knows a lot about beer, so it’s no wonder the team at Fierce Beer snapped her up immediately.
After all, she did cycle six miles just to go for a job interview.
With a passion for brewing and creating new, unique beers, Do works tirelessly to create stand out beers alongside the rest of the team.
We caught up with her after a busy shift to chat all this beer and put her through our round of quick fire questions.
See how she got on below…
What’s your customer icebreaker?
It depends on the time of day. I like to ask what they had to drink before and judge their next beer on that. If they haven’t tried any, I get a bit rebellious and give them a juicy IPA Late Shift.
It’s the end of your shift – what do you pour yourself?
This depends on the week itself. I normally crack open an Easy Shift because I love it at any time. You can’t go wrong with it.
If you were a drink, what would you be and why?
A fresh Stock pale ale IPA aged in a gin barrel. I’m kind of experimental and it gives that little kick.
What would the theme song to your average shift be?
Anything from the ’80s.
What’s in your drinks cabinet at home?
Mostly bottles I want to age. I’ve moved to three countries in a short period and I’ve carried 40 beers every time. At Tour de Geuze I collected all the specials of three Fonteinen and Cantillon. In 2015 I did an internship at Wildbeer, the blends I did there are also still there.
Best food and drink pairing?
Definitely mixed fermentation beers and cheese. Being Dutch, I grew up with cheese and the options are endless.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three drinks are there with you?
Citrus Tart, because it would cool me off. Then some Liberty Ale to bring back all great memories, and then a bottle of absinthe.
You have to make a drink to represent Aberdeen. What would that be?
My first my thought went to oil and grey stones, so let’s switch that to the beautiful forest of Kirkhill; I’d make a 12% wee heavy, with pine cones and herbs foraged in the wood. There are loads of ingredients we have right on our doorstep which taste amazing in beer.
Your favourite superhero/celebrity is sitting at the bar. Who is it and what do you serve them?
I’d give Batman a Kopstootje – a traditional Dutch drink that involves a small glass of Pilsner and Old Jenever – so he can forget about crime for a second.
