We are just back from our holidays in the South of France (for the curious people, we stayed in a little village called Vacquières). And what did we see? In EVERY bar or café there was Heineken on draft. Let’s say, 5 years ago, that wasn’t the case at all. I thought the French were quite chauvinistic? It used to be 1664/Kronenbourg.. And to be honest, I liked that a lot more.
I must say I silently hope that it changes again and that France can be proud of it’s own beer…
Or am I wrong? Are there any french bloggers here that know more?
Bye the way, you mustn’t be fooled by all the mass production of beer (and wine ;-) in France. You can find a lot of variety beers there too. For example the Ch’ti beer, that is now well-known thanks to the film ‘Bienvenue chez les Ch’ti’s‘. If you like French films, you should definitely put in on your list!
