Traditional Organic Beer Made in the Gâtine


The micro-brewery was started in December 2014 by Jean-Marie Birtgue. The beer is made traditionally. Unfiltered and allowed to ferment in the bottles, it is 100% organic. There is a range of five varieties which are available all year round. In 2020 the brewery produced 38000 litres of beer!

La Gabarde Blonde 5°  : This is a traditional beer brewed with unroasted malts. Its taste comes from a blend of aromatic hops. This is a light beer which can be drunk at any time of the day and whatever the occasion.

La Gabarde Ambrée 6°  : This is a traditional beer brewed with a selection of caramelised malts. The coriander and orange peel flavours derived from special hops leaves a light bitterness on the tongue. This subtle mixture gives it a spicy, fruity character. Ideal for cooking, it is also great as an aperitif or with the meat or cheese course.

La Gabarde Brune 7°  : This is a traditional beer brewed with roasted malts which gives it that lovely dark colour. The subtle blend of malts used gives it a strong flavour of coffee and liquorice. Smooth on the palate and not very bitter, it is ideal as an aperitif.

La Gabarde Blanche 4.5°  : The use of wheat malt gives this traditional beer a unusual flavour. Elderflowers give it a lightly bitter taste. It complements fish dishes and is good in sauces. Chill it for a refreshing summer drink.

La Gabarde India Pale Ale (IPA) 6°  :  This is a light coloured beer developed by the British in the 18th century for export to India. The strong flavours of the different hops used give this slightly golden beer a taste of exotic fruit. Smooth and balanced this beer will enlighten your aperitifs.

La Gabarde de Noël 7° :  This beer is brewed to an ancient traditional recipe when the brewer emptied out his remaining stocks of malts, hops and spices and used them for the final brew of the year which was then drunk by the employees at Christmas. The result is a rich, spicy, slightly copper-coloured beer which will liven up your winter evenings.
