“Beerophiles” gather… hilarity ensues

Tilburg International Club Beer Tasting 5 March 2021. by Essi Koskela. Unlike the several devoted beerophiles attending the tic beer tasting event, I was hesitant at first. My preference has settled in the plain pilsje and lager after years of empirical research, and I was not sure I was ready to challenge this concept.

The Experience

Unfooled by my prejudice, I set out to experience the selection of four local craft beers: a hazy landbier (Beerze Classic),  IPA, a subtle triple (School Strafwerk), and a thick, rich porter (Engelbertus Zachte Heelmeester). Joining us online was our beer master, Hans from HetBierMoment. Thanks to tic, 4 beers + a beer glass were delivered straight to each participant’s door.  That’s tic service at its best! (more…)

Meet the Board – Communications and Outreach

Tilburg International Club Communications

Mala Raman

Tilburg International Club has come a long way from its start in 2008.  Since we started the club, I’ve contributed invarious capacities on the Board and have enjoyed seeing the club from all different perspectives. I’m currently in the role of strengthening our online presence, supporting the growth of our membership base and developing sustainable business partnerships.

Our Online Presence

Our communications priority has always been to create a strong online awareness of our club, events, goals and attractive membership benefits through Facebook (feel free to visit now!), Twitter @tilintclub, Instagram @tilburg_international_club and, of course, our own Tilburg International Club website. We rely on our members, guests, sponsors and community leaders to help spread the word about what our club can offer internationals in Brabant. (more…)

Our current Treasurer is moving on from her role and we are looking to fill this important position within the club Board of Directors. Don’t know much about finance, but you’re detail oriented? No problem, we can fully train you to take over!

The Treasurer plays an important role in the club by overseeing all of our financial matters.  Being part of the Board also means that you get to meet a lot of people from different cultures and countries, you can contribute to club activities that benefit the international community, and you have the potential to gain new skills.

Most of all, its a lot of fun! (more…)

Anita has something to say about Morning Mug

Tilburg International Club coffee morningAnita says…

If human ingenuity has no limits, that of the tíc Events Team manages to exceed even that. In the midst of a pandemic, which qualifies pre-eminently as force majeure, no one would have blamed the team if they had shelved their efforts and waited for more propitious times. But no, on they soldiered, even when their numbers were reduced owing to a crop of adorable babies. Mazeltov!

Expanding our virtual world

Indomitable, they grabbed the virtual world by the horns and ran with it.  Virtual parties with Netflix and boardgames, then with goodies delivered to the door, same with a virtual beer tasting session, and the Book Club zoomed on regardless and for those starved of human company the Morning Mug was born.
