Alex Claos Director Viru beer

I have known Boris Ivan for about six-seven years when he was working in Hush bar in London. It was a time when Viru beer was still trying to establish itself in the bar scene in London and we found that Boris’ enthusiasm for the brand and his loyalty to his supply partners gave our beautiful beer a much needed boost.

Over the years I turned to Boris for his professional advice on several occasions and am currently using his expertise of a mixologist for one of my brewing projects. I had an opportunity to get to know Boris not just as a professional, but also socially and can say that his easy going character and his sense of humour have increased his value as a person in my eyes and we have since become good friends.

I would recommend Boris to anyone who needs expert opinion on many things that are part of this exciting drinks industry.
