Brasserie de Bretagne
We created our first beer in Trégunc in 1998.
It was the first recipe in a long line of
traditional Breton beers.

The story of Brasserie de Bretagne

This was our starting point, driven by a real passion for brewing and our region. Over the years, we have extended our range of products and the flavours that evolved under the name of “Brasserie de Bretagne” replacing the original “Brasserie BRITT”. With a culture and a regional heritage of international renown, our Brewery is aperfect ambassador for our region with a pinch of avant-gardism.

Since 2020 our team has moved a few kilometres from Trégunc, to a new production site of 8500 m2, located in the coastal town of Concarneau. Here, our brewers continue to develop quality brews, made from local products and know-how inspired by artisanal techniques, to offer you 4 signature beers and more than 21 recipes with distinct and strong characters.

Our Values

Passion, humanity, commitment and humility

This culture of innovation fuels all our projects on a daily basis, providing our brewerswith a limitless playing field and regularly offering you new experiences, never ceasing to surprise you.
Although we have a strong traditional base, we also look to the future.

Factory & behind the scenes

Our brewing process

The making of our beers goes through several different stages :

1. Malting

of organic barley by our local malt-makers. This malt determines, according to time and cooking temperature, the future colour and intensity of our recipes as well as the toasted, roasted or biscuited notes you can find in them.

2. Crushed

This malt is crushed until the right grind is obtained, providing the basis of our beers, which is then mixed with water and heated. This stage is called the mashing stage (this is where the degree of alcohol and the roundness of our beers are determined).

3. Brewing

in our vats we then bring to boiling point a mixture resulting from the mash to which we add water, spices and hops that bring the required level of bitterness.

4. Fermentation

this must is then lowered to a chosen fermentation temperature, and it is at this stage that the yeasts are added. They are crucial because they are the ones that transform the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide (the magic yeast). Our brewery uses an elaborate brewing process and a top fermentation temperature of between 18° and 25°. Our beers reach maturity after 7 days of fermentation in vats.

5. Bottling

then natural refermentation in the bottle.

6. Tasting

of course, we always save the best for last.
