Ancestral know-how

Setting off from Lyon, in a people carrier with all the mod cons, discover the beer of the Pilat region: a product of the terroir and reflection of ancestral know-how.
This craft beer, brewed in keeping with age-old traditions, is made with local organic ingredients and mineral water of the Pilat region. Following a tour of the production workshop, you can taste the seasonal beers.

Next, set off to discover a stronger drink, pear brandy, another speciality of the region to the south of Lyon. French pear brandy was born here in the 1930s, a region where the terroir and climate are perfect for growing Williams pears. Discover a story and a passion, with a tour of the estate and a tasting of this exceptional drink.

Maison JOannès Colombier

French pear brandy was created in Villette-de-Vienne, by J. Colombier. In the 1930s, his friend, Fernand Point, a famous restaurateur at La Pyramide, was so enthusiastic about the delicacy and fruitiness of the drink that he asked him to reserve production for the restaurant.
