History of Brasserie d´Achouffe
Brasserie d´Achouffe is a Belgian brewery founded in 1982 by Christian Bauweraerts and Pierre Gobron. Its name comes from the word chouffe, which means gnome in the Walloon dialect. Legend has it that in the time of the Templars, in the forests of Cedrogne, a colony of gnomes produced beer for the whole country until a landslide buried them alive, so the Belgians had to start producing their own beer. But in 1978, the surviving gnome visited the founders, teaching them the recipe for their first beer, the Golden Chouffe.
