Eight brewers were at the Mayenne’Bière Festival, this Saturday, May 4, which is organized until 8 p.m. in Saint-Jean-sur-Mayenne.

Charly Marteau and Anaël Morgant, from the Logres brasserie in Ernée, presented their creations for the first time: “We created our brewery in September 2023.” Anaël has been interested in beer making for six years. Both working at Rochefeuille high school, they decided to devote themselves to beer by opening the Logres brewery. “We offer draft lagers, dark beers, white beers and an English IPA (India Pale Ale). And we also have a brut beer to take away, halfway between sparkling white wine and beer. »

“We brew the English way”

Nicolas Lorent and Nicolas Leprêtre, from the Nico brewery created in Lassay-les-Châteaux, make beers that are light in alcohol, under the name Courbette. Clément Cousin and Julien Pinçon, from the Cousin brasserie in Pré-en-Pail, were there for the fourth time. “We have 26 references and we brew in the English style. » Indeed, it was during an internship in a printing house in Nièvre that Clément discovered the fermented drink. A brewing internship in La Manche confirmed his passion and he moved there in 2014.

The Oudon brewery farm, based in Méral, was represented by Bernadette Dumas Gaultier and Stéphane Gaultier. “We offer organic beers. Of the 38 hectares of the farm, one and a half hectares is devoted to the cultivation of barley, which is used for the brewery. All our crops are organic, so our beers too,” explains Bernadette. She specifies: “We are in a circular economy because we use wood from the farm for energy and all the waste is consumed by the cows. »

” The goal is reached “

Marine Gélinier and Maxime Ménard, from the Mont Hardi brewery in Château-Gontier, underline: “We have two ranges: a classic one and the other Craft, more elaborate beers. » Jean-François Guihéry, from l’Arborescence, a farmer’s brewer in Saint-Georges-Buttavent, offers artisanal and certified organic beers. Guillaume Mélin and Juliette Mottin, from the Guibs Beer brewery in Cigné, offer a drink labeled Nature et Progress. The festival’s neighbors, the BAM de Montflours, also had a stand. Jean-François Bodinier, co-president, underlines: “It’s a positive day with the welcome of a new brewer, the various activities which were well attended. It is an intergenerational, festive and musical event. The goal is reached. »
