By very special arrangement from Mr. Michael Pauwels of THE GLOBE DINE BAR BELGIAN GASTROPUB and soon to be THE NEW WORLD ABBEY GASTROPUB, we bring you this special interview with Michael and Mr. Marco Passarella, Sales Manager of the St. Bernardus brewery!
This interview was done live via telephone, since we did not trust Skype due to it’s inconsistent reliability. The echo you hear from Michael and Marco’s side of the phone call was due to the fact that they were speaking to me in a conference room at the brewery, using the speakerphone feature- (you can see evidence of this in the photo below)
The video gets into the history of Michael and Marco, and the past, present, and future of the St. Bernardus brewery! There are lots of pictures and movie clips that accompany this video. So open up your favorite St. Bernardus beer, sit back and enjoy the video! P.S. this video has a surprise ending, so when you think the video is over, it’s not! Watch it all the way to the very finish!
