Behind the name ‘Sofie’ you’ll find an entire team, dedicated to putting Belgian beer on the global map. Of course, it all started with one person: Sofie Vanrafelghem and her fascination for Belgian beers.
Sofie Vanrafelghem: “I love to shop, to have fun, to enjoy romantic dinners… I’m a foodie and I love beer. No white wine or cava for me. It hasn’t always been that way, though. In fact, it used to be completely the opposite. I grew up in a loving family, but without a drop of beer in sight. It was during my last years at the university that I started to discover craft beers. When I tasted my first Trappist, I had no clue that it would change my life."
The more Sofie got to know about Belgian beers, the more her interest deepened, so she decided to take it to a professional level. Sofie: “So many brewers, beers, stories, traditions and flavors… I couldn’t believe that I had overlooked all of this in favor of wine.
