Profile of the brewers

The founders of the Maddam brewery are two cousins, Alexis and Vianney Madelin, both of whom grew up in Burgundy. Alexis had previously worked in the vineyards in Châteauneuf du Pape, in Australia and then in Chablis for many years, while Vianney, after completing his woodworking studies, turned towards artistic design and creation for famous Champagne houses and renowned distilleries. Driven by a determination to offer high quality, artisanal French beers, and by a desire to return to their native lands, in 2016 the two cousins decided to renew the Burgundian brewing tradition in a land where wine is king, in the very heart of Chablis! Their beers are modern, 100% artisanal and organic. They are brewed with various, hand-selected types of barley, all of which are grown in Burgundy, and using patiently elaborated and jealously guarded recipes inspired by refined and generous gastronomical brews. Maddam beers are all-natural, non-filtered and non-pasteurized, created by a unique brewing method of 60 days (fermentation in steel vats between 68 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit, bottling with a light addition of sugar and yeast, second fermentation at 77 degrees Fahrenheit lasting two weeks, labeling and ageing in bottle for two weeks before release). The finely crafted Maddam beers stand out from other French beers due a delicate head, their fine bubbles and their smooth and finely balanced texture on the palate
