One of our favorite breweries is having a landmark birthday this year. The mascot of Brasserie D’Achouffe is a little gnome that graces the packaging of all their brands and has quite an interesting back story. Chouffe actually can be translated as gnome from the Waloon dialect of the Belgian Ardennes region. According to local legend, there was a goblin brewery nestled in the woods that produced a river of beer that satisfied all of Belgium. The goblin brewery went dry and the river began to run only with water, but that is the water that is used by the Brasserie to this day! Austin and Addison celebrated this anniversary already, but keep your eyes open for another opportunity to drink in a gnome hat!
