History of beer Chouffe
The history of this beer begins in the 70s when Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts decided to create their own beer.
With a low budget they managed to brew their first batch in August 1982. From that moment on, the beer started to be known and to be produced on a large scale.
A few years later, they founded the Brasserie d'A Chouffe adopting the red hat gnome as their emblem. They started to expand in their neighbouring countries, such as the Netherlands, and later on they did so at an international level, reaching more than 40 countries.
