The Caracole brewery was born in 1765 at a time when it was not yet called Caracole.
The brewery was active until 1939, when a violent storm destroyed the chimney which collapsed on the buildings, leaving only ruins on its fall. After this incident, someone exploited the premises for another activity.
In 1971, a young man from Namur decided to relaunch the brewing activity in this place steeped in history.
At that moment, everything had to be redone and François made an important decision which became the hallmark of the Caracole brewery. He heats the wort over a wood fire as before.
The facilities were built accordingly, and even today, the brewery operates on a wood fire. As technologies have evolved, this method has been perfected over time.
The range of the Caracole brewery focuses on four beers in particular: Caracole, Nostradamus, Saxo and Troublette.
It is from this range that Caracole decided to launch into organic beers. In addition to the European organic label (little green leaf), the Caracole brewery also obtained a second label, the "Nature & Progrès" label. The latter is a label created in 1964 for agriculture and cosmetics, requires even more restrictive specifications than the classic organic label.
The Caracole brewery therefore stands out from other breweries by its choice of productions and its atypical history.
