The ultimate beer for natty wine fans everywhere.
It’s pretty clear we’re fans of the Loire, and we’ve written numerous love letters to the region. But this talented swath of land can do more than produce stunning - and good value - wines. Turns out the Loire Valley has a pretty strong beer game, and the Hardouin Brothers know what’s up when it comes to crafting farmhouse ales. This one is inspired by the Saison, one of our favorite styles. Tart, fresh, and beautifully simple.
- Brasserie de la Pigeonelle was started by the Hardouin brothers, who initially had careers as beer distributors in Paris.
- They worked with breweries like Cantillon and Dupont for many years prior to stepping out on their own and starting their brewery in the Touraine.
- Loirette is their flagship beer.
