In 1710, John Smithwick founded the Kilkenny brewery in the ruins of a 13th century abbey. It was commonly called St Francis Abbey and produced red ales with a bitter, acidic taste, mitigated by a few notes of caramel. Such was its success that Kilkenny beer became one of the reasons why everyone knew Ireland’s most medieval town.

Look up and enjoy it like a caramelised prayer.

Kilkenny draws on green Irish landscapes, criss-crossed by rural trails and wild waterways, for inspiration. The region’s undeniable charm and turbulent history have forged the character of this time-honoured ale, which cements camaraderie in tribute to Saint Canice, the abbey’s founder.

 Kilkenny is a deep reddish-brown ale with a subtle reddish sheen. Its foam is light and almost fruity, making it the perfect thirst-quencher. Its reputation illustrates its Irish origin with stunning landscapes. To taste it is to immerse yourself. Turbulent rivers and ancient green landscapes give it a wild character, steeped in history and bravery. 

It has become a “cathedral” beer, like the monument of its city of origin.

Découvrir le lambic

Connu dès le XIIIe siècle, le lambic était et est toujours brassé exclusivement dans la vallée de la Senne, plus précisément à Bruxelles et dans les environs.

Cette bière est la seule à avoir le privilège de porter une dénomination contrôlée (par arrêté royal du 20 mai 1965), et doit être brassée selon les normes fixées légalement.

Les brasseurs professionnels partageaient leur savoir avec les particuliers, dont l’installation de brassage se trouvait dans le séjour, avec les paysans, qui affectaient leur main d’œuvre au brassage lorsqu’il y avait moins de travail, et avec les religieux, qui prescrivaient même leur breuvage comme médicament.
