CRAFT BREWERY OF THE MONTH
DO YOU KNOW THE BREWERY DE BOUILLON ?


Brewery De Bouillon

The story (or prequel) begins in October 1994 at 22 Grand Rue in Bouillon. The building in which the future brewery will be installed is home to Nathalie Pougin’s homonymous grocery store “Marché de Nathalie”. The grocery sold basic items such as vegetables and fruits, but also cheeses, wines and just 13 beers – Belgium’s most known and established beer brands.

A few years later, Nathalie and her husband Jacques decided to increase the small store’s beer selection to 50 in 1995 to finally 250 beers by the end of 1996.

The Pougins however, were just at their beginnings and had a vision: restoring a brewery in the heart of Bouillon which had been missing for decades.
