Gosselin Brewery

at Havay

  • In 1890, the Gosselin family started to brew artisanal beer in Quevaucamps (Beloeil). 1906 saw the start of the new installations of the Gosselin Brothers Brewery. Unfortunately, in 1964, the brewery stopped its activities. In 2012, Fabrice & Sophie Gosselin-Buscain decided to revive this heritage. Relaunching this family artisanal brewery was a dream that also allowed the artisans of our region to be put in the spotlight. François Martin from Mons took care of the design of the new labels (with a little nod at our Lumeçon on the label of the "Coq"), the printing house Livin from Givry (Quévy) provided the labels, and the glasses were personalised in collaboration with the company Vieux Beau Dour SPRL of Dour. It’s obvious that the success of this family project implies 100% involvement of people from the region of Mons.

    In November 2015, the first bottles were finally produced, after more than 50 years of absence! Today, the Gosselin family, established in Quévy, is proud to let you (re)discover "Le Coq" & "La Vieille", two artisanal blonde beers, non-filtered and re-fermented in bottles according to tradition. These convivial beers remind us of the excellence of the products of old.

    -”Le Coq”: golden colour, floral lightly spiced nose; a cool and vigorous approach, balanced acidity, sustained bitterness.
    -”La Vieille”: original seasonal type beer, very refreshing. Fruity nose; starts off soft and light, balanced acidity, light bitterness.

    In 2016, close collaboration between the Compagnie Montoise des Hallebardiers, the designer Robin Livin and the Gosselin Brewery resulted in the creation of "La Vieille Hallebarde", a thirst-quenching golden beer, recognisable by it black and gold label, the colours of the chapter of Saint Waudru! This beer very quickly became the favourite drink of the Compagnie Montoise des Hallebardiers, whose role is to protect the relics of the body of the patron saint of Mons.

    Among other things, this vintage won the silver medal during the Lyon International Competition for the 2019 edition. As for the emblematic “Le Coq” beer, it won the gold medal for its first-ever appearance. To add, “La Vieille” won the silver medal at the 2018 edition. Only exceptional beers!
