Fermenté au Bost
Our micro-brewery is located in an old farm house, in Siorac-de-Ribérac (Dordogne), at the edge of the Forêt de la Double in the Périgord.
We brew in small quantities using traditional methods, and our beers are unfiltered and unpasteurised. The water we use for brewing is local and not chemically treated, unlike you’ll find in many breweries – we just boil it to reduce it’s natural hardness.
Double Entendre ale
This is our flagship beer – a typical British bitter with a little extra ‘je ne sais quoi’. This amber ale has a hoppy fragrance, yet is smooth and almost sweet to the taste and is dangerously drinkable! ABV 5%.
Double Entendre is an English expression made up of French words. We chose this name to represent its origins, in the Double area of the Périgord, where the English-French entente is thriving. As a bilingual duo with a double English-French culture, we feel it suits us well!
Our other beers
As the brewery has only very recently opened (January 2019), we’re only making one beer to start: Double Entendre.
In the future, and more specifically as summer comes back around, other beers will be available – follow us on social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) to make sure you don’t miss them!
