Rulles (Rura, 1056; Ruris, 1097; Rura, 1158; Rure, 1193) : river ributary of the Semois, peaceful village in the South of Belgium, craft brewery.
Welcomed from the start by the greatly missed Michael Jackson (author of reference works on whisky and beer), Grégory Verhelst has been on a quest for taste, his vision of THE good beer since 2000. As a pioneer and against the stream.
La Rulles brewery currently produces approximately 3,000 hectolitres per year, with premium quality ingredients and a unique brewing process in open fermentation tanks.
I like Grégory Verhelst’s style...
he acquired the sense of curiosity...

Marcel, he is way more than just the brewery’s mascot.
He's the good friend you go fishing with, bare feet in the river on a sunny afternoon (and with some cold bottles of Estivale on hand).
He's the good ol’ grandfather from our area (La Gaume), a little grumpy but who cannot refuse anything to his grandchildren (and definitely not a small glass of Saison during a family party).
He's a gentleman farmer, strong and solid as a rock in his youth, still in pretty good shape these days even if he put a little on weight (he can’t resist a delicious pâté gaumais along with a Brune).
Marcel, he is what we all aspire to : a real man enjoying life and simple pleasures, a good glass of Blonde in hand.
All our beers are brewed with these ingredients only : water (coming from the Forêt de Rulles - Natura 2000 preserved area), barley and wheat malt, hops, yeast, sugar. No spice at all.
