Benoit Johnen became a hard-working bierophile during his first job at the Piron brewery in Aubel. He brewed there several years and, leaving the brewery in 1996, he knew that one day he would brew again. In 1997, he took over the pub of his village and made it a friendly and warm place. The years that followed were prosperous, but in the head of our brewer, this microbrewery project was still fermenting. It was in 2000 that he started to work: demolition of the annex and construction of the brewery, purchase of equipment from the breweries 'La Magonnette' and 'Ruwet', adaptation and installation of equipment, layout of premises . . . The first wort was finally subjected to the voracious appetite of yeasts in January 2002.
