Romain Chollet, is a wine merchant and agronomist who had the chance to carry out various trainings and internships in brewery, in particular in a Belgian Trappist abbey (Orval). Recently, he has found a magnificent place to brew a dozen beers (Aran, Bourg-en Lavaux, VD) that he offers you to discover. The brewery takes its name from Hordeum vulgare which means barley in Latin. Indeed, he pays special attention to the origin of raw materials. The brewery therefore uses a reconversion Bio Suisse malting barley malt (Explorer variety) grown on Vaud soil (Alexandre Pidoux, Forel-sur-Lucens). Hops are not to be outdone since they most often come from the market garden hops in Grandcour (Bio Suisse also). But to sublimate our heritage, he manages to ferment it with good yeasts. And what could be better than the ancestral yeasts of the Belgian monks of Orval or Westvleteren, eh !?
