Micro brewery in Chandres, France

La Microbrasserie de Chandres aka L'Eurelienne

The brewery goes by both names 

since they are the only brewers town.

French people haven't attached themselves to the life boat of beer loving just yet.

They drink a lot of wine

They are raising beer taxation a wapping 160% after January 2013
This French Micro brewery, was discovered by my partner and I while at a Food & Wine Festival in Orleans, France. Here is a bit of a vid that popped up on youtube shortly after the Festival. If you don't speak French then you get to see the head of the Brew Master and if you speak French, then you can learn a bit about the brewery!

Just before christmas we decided to take a slick stroll over to Chandres to get the grand tour.

L'Eurelienne is located in Chandres, which is outside of Chartes but actually in a smaller area called Sours. Took me weeks to realize that my web searching was telling me about the brewery location, not the beer flavor. They do not make sours.

L'Eurelienne isn't too keen on accessibility for reality handicapped people and haven't got much on the web to show off.

Facebook is a flop

.com is non existant

and searches come out with weak tourist sites

make sure your google translate is on


Thus, a pop video of me and the French man hitting up the brewery


Flashy box? That's guna cost ya
