The history of...Brasserie d'Achouffe
La Chouffe is an award-winning beer, brewed by Brasserie d’Achouffe in Achouffe, Belgium.
This now iconic beer has a charming and inspiring history. Founders and brothers-in-law, Chris Bauweraerts and Pierre Gobron, brewed their first batch in 1980 with a starting capital of just €5,000. They set up shop in a small shed. Only after three years did the beer finally get its name: La Chouffe. Currently, Brasserie d’Achouffe brews several thousand hectolitres of beer per year and the iconic gnome logo can be found in more than 40 different countries.
