Rochefort

The abbey of Notre-Dame-de-Saint-Rémy near Rochefort was founded in 1230 and has been producing beer since the sixteenth century, but only for months. The current brewery has been into use since 1907 but the beer was introduced later. The existing installation dates from 1960. The brewery is not accessible and follows very strict rules. Remarkable are the labor hours, as the mash is boiled at 3 :30 in the morning. At about 7 :00 the hop is added and at 12 :00 the wort is filtered. At 17:00, the brewing process comes to the end after which fermentation can start at a temperature of 25°c. Bottling takes place at 28°c so that secondary fermentation on the bottle can come into action much quicker.
