La bière

Compound mainly of water, malt (barley and wheat), hops, yeast and sugar, the beer was sold in Touraine since the end of the 18th century. It disappeared during 1970s, further to the closure of the big brewery of Saint-Eloi (or Webel) situated in the middle of Tours. It come back in the department for a few years. Always elaborated according to the same process (crushing, pasting, brewing, fermentation, bottling), home-made beers are fermented again in bottles (with the deposit of yeast at the bottom). This process results to natural, fine and pleasant bubbles. So white beers, lagers, dark beers and amber beers are proposed to you.
