The Microbrewery

Originally a Belgian stonemason, Renaud moved to Cotignac in 2008 to try to make a living from crafting with stone, his passion since childhood.  Also close to his heart was his love of beer, boosted by the centuries-old tradition of beer brewing in his native country. Renaud first tried his hand at beer brewing in the privacy of his garage. A few years later, thanks to coincidences and the right encounters, he became the tentative manager of the ‘Tailleur de Bière’ and set up a micro-brewery in the former laundry of the Lou Calen hotel. It now welcomes patrons from all over Provence and the local region. The name of the brewery is a play on words, since Renaud was originally a ‘Tailleur de Pierre’ (stone crafter) but it now has a nickname, Le Tuf, as a nod to the limestone rock typical of the region and of course the rock that makes up the majestic cliffs of Cotignac.
