David Raets is Belgian and he is one of the Three Happy Brewers who are making beer in Bucharest.
Three Happy Brewers was founded in June 2017 by a Belgian and two Italians who, after having enjoyed craft beers around the world, wanted to have the same quality and diversity of beers right here in Romania. The dream is now realised, and the team is happy!
How do you like your coffee ?
Ristretto – short, black, and meaningful.
What’s your favorite app ?
Allow me to say the Google Suite: I would get lost without its map, would not be able to set myself reminders without gmail, and I would forget appointments without its Calendar app!
Name 3 things you always carry with you.
My phone, my wallet, and my house keys. I take trans-continental flights with scarcely more.
What’s your favorite place in Bucharest ?
Herastrau park: It’s an oasis of calm in the middle of the city, and I love to just go for a walk or stop along its bank and have a lemonade.
How did you spend your last holiday ?
My last holiday (3 days weekends and family visits don’t count!) was too long ago, but it was ten days along the Italian and French Riviera soaking in the sun and the local flavours, but staying for the most part inland away from the packed beaches.
What newspapers/magazines do you read ?
The Economist, and whatever comes my way via Facebook.
What colour is your kitchen ?
Name 3 favorite hobbies.
Tennis, sailing, and travelling to discover new places.
The most important person in your life is…?
What is your favorite car ?
Any of the classic Mercedes SL-series cabriolet. It’s something of a dream, but not very practical for Bucharest!
If you wouldn’t have your actual career/job, what would you like to do (as a career/job) ?
Making beer is something of a dream job already.
What do you like best about Romania ?
I love its weather, I dream about its countryside, its geography, and its traditions, and I respect the ambitious forward-looking culture of its large cities.
