Beer has been famous since ancient times
It was in Mesopotamia, in the sands of Sumer, then in Chaldea and Assyria that scientists discovered the first archaeological documents on fermented grain drinks. Later beer was adopted in Egypt. Beer became a national drink, dedicated to Osiris, God of the Sun. Egyptian brewers macerated a barley meal, topped with fermented bread crumbs and flavored with an infusion of lupine. Simple everyday beer was called Zythum. Double beer, drunk during religious ceremonies, was called Celia or Ceria. Rome, then later Greece, also enjoyed beer. It appeared in Gaul a century before J-C. The Celts called it Cervoise. The Chinese made rice beer 5,000 years before our era.
African peoples have been consuming fermented drinks made from cassava and millet since time immemorial. When Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean, he was amazed at the consumption of a corn beer by some of the indigenous peoples. The monopoly of brewing beer was granted to the monks by Charlemagne in the 9th Century. The Abbey of St. Gall in Switzerland, which dates from the year 820, had no less than three breweries and a malt house. In 1268, Saint-Louis defined the statutes of the Corporation des Brasseurs. The use of hops, as the main aromatic material of beer, was not imposed until 1435 following an edict by Jean-Sans-Peur, the Duke of Burgundy. In the XVIth Century, the popular Duke of Brabant, Jean Primus, known as Gambrinus, became in our regions the symbol of the brewery. But, for several centuries already, the breweries of Flanders and Lorraine have venerated Saint-Arnould as their patron. Today, tradition is respected at O’neil, with all its know-how and the respect due to beer.
Why make our beer on site?
So that you can taste a super fresh beer on site, because it has not undergone any manipulation intended to improve its conservation. It thus retains all its flavor (flavor + fragrance) and this is also why we can say that our beer is "Brute de Brasserie". On the other hand, our beers are "pure malt" and contain no substitutes (corn, rice ...).
All operations are, of course, subject to numerous checks, carried out in the laboratory by our "quality service" specialized in breweries in order to provide all the guarantees essential to a food product. It is important that our customers know all the care and love for the profession that we bring to the production of our beers. It is also a way to add a pledge to your quality. O’Neil beer, drawn directly from the tank into your glass, is a “fresh product” that is unpasteurized and has a high content of vitamins B12, B2 and B1.
