You can wake up Raoul for a nice beer. With the rise of many craft breweries in recent years, his taste has developed from drinking a lot of beer to drinking a lot of good beer. Among other things by visiting breweries and beer festivals, he has a lot of experience in tasting beers and knows what different flavors are available.
"In the past 10 years I have built the tradition of not drinking alcohol during the fasting period, between Carnival and Easter. And in recent years I have been more and more surprised by the ever improving alcohol-free and poor beers. There has been a recognized development of tasty brews with 0.5% alcohol or less. Fortunately, renowned breweries such as Mikkeller from Copenhagen and the Scottish Brewdog take this branch of sport quickly to a higher level. "
"My mission is to introduce everyone to the tastiest non-alcoholic and low-alcohol beers from around the world."

Janine runs the OnderNulPuntVijf webshop operationally. From photographing beers and packing the orders to writing the newsletters and philosophizing about the best marketing strategy: she is at home in all markets. Since 2022, it has also become her mission to let as many people as possible taste non-alcoholic beer and she is committed to spreading their joint mission together with Raoul.
"My love for alcohol-free started during Dry January in 2020. I found out that there were so many (good) substitutes for alcohol that I decided to take dry January for a while and change my mindset. broadening knowledge by tasting alcohol-free as much as possible. Now I no longer see alcohol as 'normal' but I consciously choose when I drink. That doesn't happen very often anymore and I like it very much because I feel a lot fitter and happier. I also talk about it a lot with people around me and if I can inspire people, it makes me very happy.
I came into contact with Raoul and so we started looking together at what I could do for OnderNulPuntVijf. Now I enjoy working there and try as many people as possible to facilitate their choice to go alcohol-free more often."

He packs your orders with love, ensures that our shop always looks spic and span and knows the quickest where to find all the beers on the shelves.

His sporty condition and muscles come in handy for this job.
David about working at OnderNulPuntVijf:
When I started at OnderNulPuntVijf, the store was not yet a shop because OnderNulPuntVijf had just moved to Scheveningen. So I immediately saw a nice challenge to build everything together with Raoul so close to home. I think the growth is great to see. I am sporty myself and am therefore a big proponent of non-alcoholic beer, it is one big voyage of discovery and I can be surprised at how much choice there is. The work is always challenging and much more fun than stocking shelves at Albert Heijn! :) and with such a nice team, the fun at work only gets bigger!
