Over 400 years of brewing tradition at the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy which brews the Rochefort beers is under threat.
They have been drawing their water from a well on their site for centuries. This is now under threat as a nearby quarry wants to dig deeper. This will dry up the Tridaine, an underground spring and the source of their water. It will also have a knock on effect for local flora and fauna.
Yes, an alternative water supply will be supplied but it will certainly change the character of the beer.
Please sign the petition.
It will only take a few moments of your time but could possibly save hundreds of years of tradition.
