Brewery Notes


In 2004, 35 years after the last brew, Jean's second son Laurent Agache, a civil construction engineer, got together with his cousin and friend Quentin Mariage, a chemical engineer, to relaunch the brewery.
The two of them bought some second-hand equipment from the North of England, carried out restoration work on the brewery buildings in order to bring it up to hygiene standards and came up with the formula for their first beer, Tournay.

The first brew took place on 1st May 2004 and, although it lasted for more than 18 hours, everything went to plan. The Brasserie was back in business, watched by an emotional Jean Agache, who had been in retirement since 1996: "To be honest, I was pretty sceptical about their plans to start with. But now, it really warms my heart to see the brewery working again..."


Since then, production has increased and is currently up to just over 450 HL a year. The aim of the Brasserie de Cazeau is to make high quality, traditional beers, while keeping up the style of craftsmanship associated with the family tradition.
