Brasserie au Baron
near Bavay

A "micro-brewery" on the banks of the river Hogneau

The smallest brewery in France?
You face a difficult choice at this country brwery near the Belgian border. Alain Bailleux and his family produce three remarkable beers: blonde, ambrée and brune.

Each bière de garde is made from traditional ingredients, unpasteurised and without chemicals. It's fermented in the bottle, so you need to be careful with the sediment when pouring.

They have a café-restaurant next to the brewery, where you may see the owner serve grilled meat and fish to accompany the beers.

Background information

..Good beer, nice atmosphere and nice grilled foods. The front room offers a very nice and classic brasserie atmosphere complete with a wood buring fireplace. The staff is friendly and a small tour of the brewing area is readily available if you ask. French helps (even just the basics), but you'll enjoy regardless...
