The cheese selection The discovery of high quality cheese is the base of the work of a “refiner”.
Jacquy Cange goes through Belgium, France and other countries, to find the small farm, the good producer who can bring a new taste to its assortment. Jacquy often compares its cheese-board with “painter’s pallet” where every taste must be present in different and additional nuances, with a touch of personal innovation.
The cellar maturation In four cellars, the Refiner lets rest its various cheeses which need humidity, ventilation and a temperature adapted to the evolution of their dough. Rinds are carefully brushed, washed with delicacy. A thoughtful glance allows the slow and sweet evolution of these treasures…
Next to his traditional work, Jacquy Cange specialized in the taste harmony of cheeses with solid and liquid ingredients to be able to realize creative refining, unseen taste harmony for an exceptional delight… in the wine, in the beer, in spices, in the truffles and some other exclusive specialities…

L’ECOPAIN D’IGNACE stands for authentic, distinctive and ecological. Every single day, with all our heart, we show respect for the environment and top quality products go hand in hand. Our deluxe breads, Viennese and other fine pastries contain no coloring, flavour enhancers, preservatives and other additives. All are made with the finest ingredients, chosen for their pure, honest and healthy character.
L’ECOPAIN D’IGNACE combines traditional methods passed on through the generations with an absolute passion for perfection.
The "Brasserie Ellezelloise" is a young company created on the first of January 1993. The first beer was brewed in the month of July of that year.
The small farm where the brewery is established was purchased in 1985 and the preparation of the buildings and acquisition of second hand equipment took 8 years.
The success of this project is the result of the passion of Philippe Gerard, the Master Brewer which has been forged over 25 years of experience in beer making in several breweries, and the advice of his father, himself a brewery engineer. Philippe Gerard named his beer "Quintine", after a witch of Ellezelles, in keeping with its rich folklore.
Traditional brewing techniques have been preserved. The mash tank, the grist filter tank and the flame heated hop kettle are in copper. The wooden crates contain 12 or 24 swing top bottles with porcelain stoppers. The brewing method is by infusion, which is the oldest technique. Only basic materials are used: water, barley malt, bitter and aromatic hops, pure yeast base and dextrose. No other ingredients enter into the beer's composition.
Quintine, is a top fermented blond beer, not centrifuged, filtered or pasteurised. It has an alcohol density of 8%.
The product range of the Brasserie Ellezelloise is completed by "Quintine Ambrée" at 8,5% made with caramel malt and "Hercule" a stout at 9%, based on roasted malt.
Tasting room (+/- 70 people)
Terrace (+/-120 people)
Guided tour; further information at the brewery
From Monday till Saterday from 8 a.m. till 7 p.m.
On Sundays from 9 a.m. till 12.00, from 3 p.m. till 7 p.m.
Ellezelloise produces five regular beers, a blond and an amber ale, and a hardy Belgian stout. All of them are made in small batches and are lagered for ten days in German oak casks. They are strong, full-bodied, and very satisfying. The Quintine Amber and Blond are named for a witch of local legend. And Agatha Christie’s Detective Hercule Poirrot (probably Belgium’s best-known citizen and a native son of Ellezelles) is the namesake for the “Hercule” Stout. It is the only distinctively Belgian stout, and every bit as sturdy and dapper as its namesake.
The Brasserie Ellezelloise (pronounced “EL-ZEL-WOZ”), is located in the town of Ellezelles in the gentle “hill country” of Belgium. Founded in 1993, the tiny brewery manages to produce 1000 hectoliters per year - the most of any brewery of the Belgian Artisanal Brewers Guild. Housed in a picturesque converted barn in French-speaking Belgium, the brewery includes a cozy café to which the local folk and connoisseurs from Brussels love to repair on weekend afternoons. There you can enjoy a wonderful Ellezelloise brew, served by the brewer.
