Story
brunehaut_history

Founded in 1890, the Brasserie Brunehaut (brewery) blends tradition and modernity.
A century later, the brewhouse moved 2km (1.24mi) from the original site, remaining on the same water table with the same pristine water quality.

When a 2007 acquisition changed ownership, annual brewery production stood at 1000 hectoliters. Today, total brewery output has more than quintupled.
Nevertheless, Brunehaut remains an artisanal brewery, strong in its rich history and modern values.

OUR SECRET METHODS FOR

BREWING ORGANIC BEER

Eau Malt Houblon
Water, Malt, Hops

The brewer carefully selector 100% natural ingredients, from local farms. This is an essential condition for premium brewing.

con
Milling

Barley, malt and other grains are ground into a coarse flour.

Empêtage
Mashing

The flour is next mixed with water and precisely heated. At this stage, the heat transforms the brewing flour into a “mash” as barley enzymes turn starch to sugar.

drafff
Filtration

Next, our brewing mash is filtered and separated into liquid and solid components. The liquid, which becomes beer, is called wort. The solid, known as draff, is a brewing byproduct eventually reused for other non-brewing purposes, often as animal food.

Ebullition
Boiling

The must is brought to a boil. During and after boiling hops and spices will be added to infuse in the must.

la fermentation
Fermentation

Our cooled must is next transferred, with yeast, to a fermentation tank. For ten days, the yeast transforms all the sugar into alcohol, CO2 and esthers.

la garde
Maturation

After fermentation, the beer temperature is next brought to 0°C for a minimum of ten days. This guarantees maturation of the beer which is also refined and clarified.

Embouteillage
Bottling

Next, after light filtration, comes bottling. Brunehaut beers are bottled in 33cl and 75cl bottles plus 20 liter recyclable kegs.

Bottle Conditioning

Beer foam and bubbles are produced naturally by in-the-bottle fermentation. This a process is equivalent to the “secondary” Champagne method.
