There are two names of beers that foreign people, mainly english & american, can’t pronounce.

Westvleteren & Weihenstephan.

So I correct them.

That’s something I inherited of my father.
My brothers have that same problem.

They ask for Westfilters – I say Westvleteren.

They ask for Weissenstan – I say Weihenstephan.

I’m especially good in pronouncing dutch names, I sometimes explain to them, while I, for a short moment, secretly think about my late father.
