One family, one village, one brewery

Bienvenue à Jenlain! The village of Jenlain in northern France is located in the Avesnois area, close to the Belgian border. The Jenlain brewery and its Bière de Garde have been the beating heart of the village since 1922.

It was Félix Duyck’s vision to create the brewery on his farm for future generations to follow in his footsteps, and each subsequent generation brought its own vision to the brewery. The idea to christen the beer Jenlain after the village came from Félix Duyck’s son, Robert. However, the man who started it all continued to oversee production, including bottle conditioning in 75cl Champagne bottles capped with a real cork.
In the 1990s, as part of his project to modernise the brewery Robert Duyck was inspired to create a range of new beers.

Today, the brewery is run by a fifth generation of brewers in the shape of Mathieu Duyck. The family and its brewery have withstood some momentous events and, thanks to their passion and knowledge, Jenlain has become synonymous with independence, dedication and perseverance, undoubtedly qualities inherited from Félix Duyck.

One passion, one yeast, one beer

The term bière de garde signifies that at the end of the fermentation process the beer has been aged in tanks for a number of weeks in order to prolong the work of the yeast. This allows the flavours to develop further, and gives Jenlain its well-rounded, harmonious taste.

Throughout its history, Jenlain has always used the same yeast, nurtured, preserved and reused from one batch to the next to give the beer its unique Jenlain flavour. Yeasts are living organisms with distinctive behaviour according to their environment. At Jenlain, it’s one of the key secrets to making our beer: a love story between this special yeast strain and the brewery.
