I started my collection in 2002. In the beginning, I was only interested in collecting Belgian beer labels. Due to professional circumstances, I was able to widen my collection to international labels. Support from former colleagues and friends brought me to where I am today.
I am not a fanatical hunter for beer labels, it's more a passion for me than a hunt. Whenever I see a bottle of beer that has a label I don't yet have, I can't resist the temptation of buying the bottle, enjoying the beer and adding the label to my collection.
Now that I am back in Belgium, it will become more difficult to obtain international labels so I am always happy when I receive a new label from a friend who was willing to suffer liver damage in order to get me a label. (special thanks to my ex colleagues and friends from OPCW: http://www.opcw.org
Luckily for me, there are lots and lots of Belgian beers so I don't think I will have to quit my hobby soon.
If anyone has a label that is not in the collection, you can always contact me by e-mail and we can find a way to get them here.
