A place unlike any other in the world of breweries, since the goal here is to train young brewers and to provide them with the material they need for their trade. An audacious project that Rafael Tigel Gil decided to create in 2018. After 40 years spent in the brewing industry, he decided to share his knowledge with new enthusiasts.
A place that combines conviviality and discipline in the savoir-faire
The goal of the Cours du Malt (Malt Course) is to accompany each person in the process of making beer, whether it’s for profit or for pleasure. The classes are organised and adapted to the level of each group of participants. Then there are workshops on the production of beer, the opportunity to practice the knowledge learned and especially to allow the place for imagination by brewing from new recipes, and finishing with the packaging of the beer. The production material that is provided is simple to use and allows the production of up to 50 litres of beer. This material is available for sale in the shop, as well as the basic materials necessary for the production of beer (either in a package or loose) and the necessary materials for milling, brewing, fermenting and packaging your beverage. Note that after the theoretical and practical training, it is possible to further improve your knowledge of the art of brewing. You can use the workshop and its materials, you also have the opportunity to develop your own recipes. A confirmed brewer remains at your disposal if you so wish.
As well as being a place for training, the Cours du Malt also wishes to test new flavours and to offer a different experience. New beers are thus created, according to the mood of the moment, and those that are considered to be the best will be proposed to the general public. These recipes are, in all cases, developed without preservatives nor food colouring. They are non-filtered and, for the most part, re-fermented in bottles.
