Loirette 5.5 : The most refreshing, simple farmhouse ale.Salamandre : A pale blonde made from 100% Barley.Biere du Chameau : Their wheat beer.
It seems that one of the best ways to judge a wine is by the way real winemakers speak of them. But very few winemakers are held in quite the same esteem as these two goofy brewers from Touraine, Stephane and Ludovic Hardouin at Brasserie de la Pigeonelle. If there is a beer at a natural wine bar in Paris, it is inevitably La Loirette. Tastings are often started off with a bottle, and at every natural wine fair, Stephane and Ludo command the biggest crowd, dutifully pouring keg after keg for people whose palates are dead from too much wine. This is a winelovers beer. The Hardouin brothers started off as beer distributors in Paris, and after years of working with the likes of Cantillon and Dupont they decided to start making it on their own. So they started experimenting with beer, and moved into a family property in Touraine. They had a deep love of the beers of Belgium, from the heavily sour styles to the lighter farmhouse ales. So they started looking around for ingredients. Being the Loire, they naturally found a number of good, honest certified organic growers doing everything they needed so they could make a completely organic beer. So they started off with "La Loirette", a farmhouse style ale made as simply as possible. The result is a beautifully light, unfiltered beer. It’s a thirstquencher, it’s not hoppy or sour at all, it isn’t lambic like the beers they were working with in Paris. It’s a beer made to drink like the wines we bring in. It’s the type of beer to start the night. Or end it. Or maybe sometime in the middle.
