Belgh Brasse MicroBrewery is proud to add three (3) new medals to its honor roll. At the Denver International Beer Competition, which took place on April 13th and 14th, the MONS ABBEY WITTE won the bronze medal in the Witbier category. At the Canadian Brewing Awards on May 11th, held in British Columbia, the judges awarded the bronze medal to MONS ABBEY WITTE in the Wheat Beer - Belgian Style (Wit) category and the MONS ABBEY DUBBEL in the Belgian Style Abbey Ale category.

Belgh Brasse MicroBrewery is located in Amos and is owned by Ms. Linda Geloso. Ms. Geloso is a member of a family of bottlers specializing in activities related to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Her expertise, combined with the expertise of its brewmaster Jean-Louis Marcoux who is from Belgium, has developed a Belgian-Style Ale beer, and in January 2012, unveiled the MONS beer. His country, considered the cradle of the greatest beers in the world, has inspired this brewmaster who, passionate about his craft and his country, took with him all the Belgian tradition of double fermentation. This world-class beer is brewed with carefully selected hops and yeast from Belgium and filtered in naturally pure water from the Abitibi eskers.

Following the first brewing, MONS ABBEY WITTE participated in the Canadian Brewing Awards 2012 contest and won a bronze medal. In October 2012, the MONS line of products officially entered the Quebec market with MONS ABBEY WITTE and MONS ABBEY BLONDE. Recently, MONS ABBEY DUBBEL was added to the list of products.

In conclusion, the Belgh Brasse MicroBrewery is proud to have participated in the filming of Ça va brasser which will be broadcasted on June 29th on V. Jean-Louis Marcoux specially brewed a beer branded under the show's name and will be on shelves later this summer in limited quantities.
