We brew our beers in the heart of the Belgian Ardenne region, famous for its natural beauty. We want to preserve this landscape in a sustainable way, and play our part in caring for the planet and the people who live on it.
Drinking CHOUFFE definitely lifts your spirits! But did you know that by doing so you are also helping us support projects working towards greater social and environmental responsibility? A big CHOUFFY thank you! For us. For you. For our gnomes.
How about some deliciously eco-friendly Chouffe crackers?
The Chouffe gnomes certainly like their food, and they’ve discovered the most delicious way to enjoy their favourite drinks: with crackers! But not just any crackers: these ones are made with the spent grain that comes from brewing La Chouffe. Healthy, natural, and eco-friendly!
Spent grain is a by-product of the transformation of barley malt during the beer brewing process. It is rich in fibre, minerals, and protein.
At the end of the brewing process, some solid residue originating from the mixing of water and cereals is left at the bottom of the mashing vat. This residue is known as brewer’s spent grain.
For many years now, the gnomes in Achouffe have been reusing spent grain by reselling it to neighbouring farmers as food for their livestock. The cows in the Valley of the Fairies love it! And what’s more, this means the brewery is engaging in a short-circuit, local sales approach.
This summer, the gnomes in Achouffe decided to use a small part of the spent grain and make crackers to have with their drinks. A Chouffe-tastic idea, don’t you think? They’ve even made a little video to show you how these delicious Chouffe crackers are made:
