Our Story

In 1993, a home brewing kit was purchased and the seed was planted for the bigger dream. Today, that dream is now Orléans’ local micro-brewery where beer is brewed with the best products possible.

Our ambition is to place the ingredients at the heart of our creative process and to let their characteristics express themselves simply and harmoniously. The malts and hops used are selected from the best varieties around the world, according to their aromatic and taste profiles. No additives, dyes, preservatives and extracts are involved in our production process.

THANK YOU for joining us on this ride.
