The Féculerie farm is now an idyllic place for beer in Belgium.
It is in the village of the same name that the Jandrain-Jandrenouille brewery was born in 2006. Historically two beer-loving friends with the university knowledge to understand brewing joined forces to open the brewery.
In the summer of 2007, the first beer was born. The fourth season is innovative at the time as it is hoppy. It was also a bias on the part of the two friends.
Since then, other beers have been added to the range and the brewery wanted to work closer to its customers.
This is why other beers from the brewery exist. They brew beers for bars, cultural venues and associations. You may have already had a beer from them without knowing it.
The duo ended up separating, Alexandre finally continued solo but that does not change the philosophy of the brewery.
Located in a small village, today it also gives way to younger brewers who can come and brew there before they can have their own brewery.
It also wants to be more in tune with the environment and to do this, it pumps water from the village source, the malts used are also produced in the region by a malting plant in Corroy-le-Grand and the solar panels installed recently enabled the brewery to be 80% energy self-sufficient. Only the hops come from the United States, but this is often the case for brewers making hopped beers.
