French Beers

France Beer MapPerhaps due to the national focus on wine, good French beer is something of a rarity.  Just 10% of French beer comes from small breweries with the remainder being produced by global brewing behemoths, so consequently there’s an awful lot of average industrial pilsner around.  Like Belgium, France used to have small regional breweries specializing in servicing the needs of their local populace but despite being nearly ground into the dust across the last 40 years, there are some heroes fighting back and standing up for French brewing traditions. 

At Beer Hawk we hunt out these small artisan breweries and refuse to sell the likes of Desperados or Kronenbourg as it simply isn’t good enough.  Genuinely good French beer is produced by the likes of the Trappist monks at Mont des Cats, by Daniel Thiriez at his Brasserie in Esquelbecq and randomly by Brasserie des Sources who produce Bellerose, which is partly owned by Gerard Depardieu!
