Everyone knows some of our best friends are wine growers from the Libourne region in France, more specifically those who make Saint Emillion and Pomerol. They respect the tradition and let their wine ferment in a natural way.
Fermentation, origin and vintage are still kept up.
Our collaboration resulted in a product uniting the best of their wine and of our beer : the Saint-Lamvinus. The grapes, of the merlot and cabernet-franc varieties, are soaked in Bordeaux barrels containing two to three years old lambic. The beer is not blended before the bottling. The foam is caused by the addition of a liquor which starts the fermentation.

Arguably brewing the most sought-after beers in the world, Cantillon brewery's Jean Van Roy has near god-like status in the world of beer. Brussel's Cantillon is a lambic brewery, where the beer is exposed to natural yeasts in the air and left to ferment in small oak barrels for several years. Beers of different vintages are then blended to balance the sweetness and sourness.
