Just outside of Geneva in the Haute-Savoie department of France lies the commune of Lucinges. It is here that La Brasserie de Voirons calls home. Started by Christophe and Barbara, who draw on wide and varied experience in the restaurant industry, wine importing, and even ballet, the brewery opened its doors in 2013. They are committed to using only the highest-quality ingredients, such as certified organic hops, barley, and wheat from Germany and Belgium, with water sourced from 710m above sea level in the French Alps.
The grains are allowed to germinate, so that the sugars concentrate to optimal brewing levels, and the degree to which the grains are roasted before crushing and mixing with hot water to create the wort will ultimately determine the style of beer.
