At the end of the seventies, two brothers-in-law, Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts, decided to create their own beer in their own brewery. With little money initially committed they started what fans of the brewery call a “Chouffe story”. From the small village Achouffe in the Ardennes this is a micro brewery success story.
So what is a chouffe? A red hatted, long-bearded gnome that’s a part of local folklore…
The spearhead brew golden ale, strong, spicy and lightly hoppy, La Chouffe is bottle re-fermented, unfiltered, unpasteurised and without any additives.
