The Brewery: The Cazeau brewery was founded in Tournai in 1753 by the Descamps family, and has seen 8 generations of brewers succeed one another. Since 2004, Laurent Agache, although committed to the traditional manufacturing process, has turned to innovation and the search for new tastes.

Origin: Stout beer is probably the most famous black beer style. To understand its name, we need to move back to England when Porter beers emerged. This light but dark beer was served to people working in the harbor’s docks (moving crates, « porteur ») before a new style, stronger, appeared bearing the name Stout Porter. At the time, Stout only meant « strong beer » but the name quickly became connected to dark beer. Porter did not fade away but is still used by brewers, sometimes to display a difference of alcohol volume or of used ingredients. 

Food: Ideal with carbonates or as a dessert with speculoos ice cream.
