THE BREWERS

We love film. We love beer. And we can’t choose. So we took the Mormon route: we do ‘em both. Yep, that’s the formula: two local filmmakers from Amsterdam brewing beer inspired by movies everyone should have seen.

FINBARR
WILBRINK

You could call him a cinemaniac, but you could also say that he loves film in a crazy way. Masterbrewer Finbarr Wilbrink started acting at the same age Justin Bieber started to sing. He went to the Dublin Film Academy when he was still a teenager. We’re talking about Finbarr now. So yes, he’s a film veteran in his thirties. He works as a writer/director of fiction, documentary, tv shows and commercials. He directed the prize winning short Bounty, the documentary series De kanarie en de kolenmijn and Het geheim van de meester.

MARTIJN BLEKENDAAL

Martijn Blekendaal goes by the name ‘Bleeki’, aka ‘The Big O’ Bleek’ or in short ‘The Big O’ or ‘O’ or just ‘ ‘. A film buff, historian, doc director, father, friend, but most importantly: a complete and utter beer nerd. Martijn and Finbarr were paired as a director/editor couple for Martijn’s film ’Through the Looking Glass’. When they first met, Finbarr ordered a cappuccino while Martijn ordered a beer. Despite these artistic differences, they made a great film that was nominated as best youth documentary at IDFA. Martijn lives by the motto: if there’s still people and beer around, why go home? It has brought him two films per year, a wonderful family and the best brewery in the world.
