The Abbaye des Rocs Brewery is the first craft brewery in Belgium, established in 1979 by Jean-Pierre ELOIR on a bet with his father-in-law, as back then it was forbidden to brew less than 10,000 hl in Belgium. It was thus a fight with Belgian authorities to obtain the authorizations to brew, in order to then create the non-existant material in 1979, so that we could brew our first beer.
Our first recipe, created by Jean-Pierre ELOIR, was “la Montagnarde”, named in honour of the inhabitants of Montignies-sur-Rocs, where the brewery is located. Since then, the brewery never stopped evolving, creating special beers, including: “La Blanche des Honnelles”, voted best white beer in the world in 1997, gaining a platinum medal.
Today, Nathalie ELOIR, the daughter of the founder, is our Master Brewer and with her creativity, we now have over 10 beers in our Abbaye des Rocs selection, including creations of ultra-limited series (100 bottles) which are brewed each month with the participation of the public, using the home-brewing kit originally made by Jean-Pierre ELOIR in 1979.Site web
It’s back on the school benches, during their study of agronomy, that Renaud and François shared their vision of the business world and their passion for beer for the very first time. Beer, in its widest definition, for all the creativity it allows and for the simple, natural, local ingredients it requires for its fabrication, represented the ideal objective for them and perfectly matched their respective personality. After three years of imagining, planning, building and perfecting their project, they finally witnessed the creation of the Curtius: their star product which, quickly, crossed the international borders of the Kingdom of Belgium.Site web
Brasserie Lupulus was established in a 19th century farm located at the heart of the Belgian Ardennes, in the small village of Courtil. Inspired by tradition and guided by passion, our team at Lupulus develops uniquely flavoured craft beers, blending together spring water and prime quality ingredients.
The founders and their team put forward the strength of hops to add a hint of modernity to their beers. Bitterness is found in different levels in Lupulus’ seven beers selection: Blonde, Brown (organic), Hopera, Hibernatus, Organicus (organic), White and Fructus. The Lupulus Blond remains our most brewed beer, the first-created of our selection.
Production at Lupulus now reaches 19,500 hectolitres per annum, which represents around 6 million bottles. This is a level growth totally unexpected when we first started 12 years ago. Now, two thirds of our production is for exports.Site web
Brasserie de la Senne is at the origins of the “new wave” of craft
beer in Brussels. We have been working, among other things, at
encouraging the taste for well-hopped beers before they became trendy.
Next to hoppy ales, we produce barrel-aged mixed-fermented beers, as
well as beers refermented with a local Brettanomyces yeast.
We aim at brewing beers of character that are well-balanced, with a
requirement for quality and consistency, absence of compromise, and a
totally natural production, as well as an extremely sharp selection of
raw materials in a direct relationship with the producer.

For a few years now craft breweries have successfully undertaken to re-brand beer in France. In Paris, establishing a craft brewery is more daunting than in other regions, but a few irreducible are testing their odds. For the team at Brasserie de l’Être, the choice of Paris results from both profound love for the city and a desire to revive the industrial and community threads of the capital. As passionate and proud Parisian craftsmen, our idea of beer – a lifestyle and knowledge to share – will be for us the occasion to defend the values of the capital: diversity, culture, friendliness, and “joie de vivre”. The product we offer is a beer, conscious and respectful of your palate and the environment. It is destined to become a symbol of local culinary quality, a reflection of the quality of life of the region, and the pride of its inhabitant.Site web
Between 2011 and 2013, the adventure of Grand Paris Brewers started on the 5th floor of a building (without an elevator) of Levallois, from the encounter between Fabrice (a Breton in Levallois) and Anthony (an American in Paris), both passionate of craft beer. An old office transformed into a small brewery allowed us to perfect our art, to develop our recipes, and to commercialize our first range of craft beers (La Levalloise, IPA Citra Galactique, Smoke On The Water, Porteur Gourmande…).
In 2013, with the help of Emmanuel Rey (Brasserie de la Vallée de Chevreuse) and of the teams of Parisis and Rabourdin Breweries, were able to develop our activity in the region south of Paris and perfect our products. In September 2016, we left our respective jobs and established our brewery in St-Denis. We brewed our first beer there in February 2017.Site web
Haute Rive Brewery was established in 2008. It is located in a unique 13th century fortified farm in the “commune” of Cuvry.
At Haute Rive, we know that a good beer requires quality ingredients. That is why, along with our commercial grain activity, we have developed a hops farm with the aim to re-introduce this crop in Lorraine. Thanks to the techniques we have acquired during the past 10 years, we can now offer you a range of quality craft beers picked from our very best experiments!Site web
HEXAGONE & ALES is a craft brewery from Burgundy, located in the French department of Nièvre. Our specificity is to favour ingredients of French origin (Malt from Northern Burgundy, Hops from Flanders) and to brew fine and refreshing beers of French and Anglo-Saxon inspiration. The latter generally present distinctly hopy flavours. Only four main ingredients are used (water, yeast, cereals, hops) and most of our beers put forward a specific hops on top a pale ale/pilsner malt.
We offer 3 beers year-round: Golden Ale, Pale Ale and IPA, a different season beer for fall-winter (Winter IPA) and spring-summer (White Ale), as well as special beers (UK Pale Ale, Best Bitter, East India Porter…). For the festival, we will offer amongst others, the Cool Kid (a light and hopy pale ale) and a Best Bitter (a typically British styled beer, brewed only with British ingredients).Site web
Who are we? We are two epicurean brothers, grand sons of farmers and Parisians. Animated by the flavours our land has to offer, we love quality products. After ten years working in catering in France and abroad for Nicolas, and ten years in the agri-food sector for Hubert, we decided to jump-in the the great brew.
Why craft beer? Beer lovers since our youth, we appreciated discovering the varieties of beers around the Hexagon and the world. The taste of craft beers quickly enchanted us and we then started our journey of discovery of recipes and brewing techniques to our great pleasure. We ended up testing 20 litres recipes in our parents garage, then a year later, pushed and motivated by our friends and family, we decided to start brewing on a larger scale. After various tests and recipes, we were ready! La Bouledogue Brewery was born in 2015.
Why “La Bouledogue”? A simple evidence to us: our French bulldog (i.e. bouledogue), Earlie, was always there with us while we brewed. Whenever a grain of malt would fall on the floor, she would devour it. She loves quality products as much as we do… So we brewed together the three of us. We wanted to honour her for her patience and support. Furthermore, we found that this dog of character represented well our beers with character!
La Bouledogue, craft beer brewery, is located in Villebon sur Yvette in the Essone region, one of the originating places of the Parisian craft beer. All of our recipes are developed and brewed there by our own care.Site web
The brewery was created at the “ferme de la Tuilerie” in Mortcef. In 2012, Baptiste and Timothée started local brewing sessions to spend good moments amongst friends and family, while perfecting their recipes!
Truly passionate with malt and hops, they then decided to quit their jobs and to take on the brewing adventure, with a few recipes in store. After spending some time in the Fensch Valley, the brewers finally laid their boxes and fermenters at the heart of Metz, as they started production right under the centrally-located “Pont des Roches”.Site web
Good beer makes good people.
We love beer… Pretty obvious, right?
But OK, let us start where it all started: Once upon a time, in a cold
summer day in Luxembourg City, two lads sitting around a wooden table
were chatting, grilling and drinking their own brews. After massive blah
blah blah, the clever one proposed a wild idea: to share the brews (and
the fun) with the rest of the world. Then, the meat was ready, more
beers were poured and Nowhere Brewing was born.
The philosophy of Nowhere is simple: respect for the ingredients,
respect for the process, and the will to provide our customers with a
great drinking experience. Nowhere Brewing is based in Benelux: we
design our beers in the Netherlands, and market them from Luxembourg.
We breath beer, we live beer. We dare you to joining us in the exciting
road to Nowhere.
The indie brewery was founded in 2015 to kickoff the craft beer scene in Luxembourg.
We set up our own nano brewery in the hope to open the gateway for other small breweries. Lots of small breweries mean better quality, more flavourful and exciting beer on the market!
After a lot of experimenting and refining of our recipes you will see us in all the top bars and restaurants of Luxembourg!Site web

Home of the only female Head Brewer (Brewster) in Cornwall, Padstow Brewing Company is run by husband and wife team Caron & Des Archer. It was founded in 2013, using a tiny 100 litre kit in an old surf-shower. It wasn’t long before the beer was being sold in Cornish pubs and more space and capacity were needed.
We have grown quickly and are now able to brew around 9000 pints per week on our custom-built brewery on the outskirts of Padstow, Cornwall. We have a small dedicated team who help with brewing, hand-bottling and distribution.
We’re small, passionate, focussing on the highest quality and the best service. And we plan to stay that way.Site web
