Truly artisanal Brasserie La Caracole is located in a small village Falmignoul, Province of Namur, Wallonia in southern Belgium, close to the French border. Their products are being distributed in Belgium, Italy, France, Holland and Switzerland.
Their portfolio consists of three stock ales; Caracole Troublette 5% alc./vol. (wheat ale), Caracole Saxo 8% alc./vol. (blond ale) and Caracole Nostradamus 9.5% alc./vol. (special brown ale).
All beers are presented in 11.2 fl. oz. bottles as well as in 25.4 fl. oz. / 750ml champagne bottles with cork and metal cage. All styles are bottle conditioned (second fermentation with yeast in the bottle), unfiltered and unpasteurized.
The recurring theme on each label is that of spiral snail shell from which the brewery takes its name. Apparently the snail is the emblem of Namur and the word for a snail in local Namurois dialect is "Caracole".
