A beer brewed by women, for the pleasure of all!

This beer is the first of its kind, brewed by a community of women brewers in France. We introduce to you this beer and its producers in our article.


Bierissima is the name of the first beer brewed by a community of women brewers and wine merchants. Elisabeth Pierre, internationally renowned zythologist, at the origin of the Club Bierissima and this collaborative beer, explains that the link between women and beer is very close. And yes, the first brewers were actually women brewers!

Looking back 9,000 years before our era, crafting beer might have been a women’s business. In fact, beer finds a link through cereal harvesting. And also, the making of the bread for which they were responsible. Women would even have a particularly developed sense of smell in the field.

The recipe for this new beer is a collaborative one, everyone has put their own little touch: yeast, special malts, cereal, all organic.

It was with Elisabeth that four brewers and four wine merchants created this beer. Right before meeting at the Brasserie de la Loire (in Saint Etienne) on July 2 2018 to brew it. The wine merchants worked on the tastes. It has been designed and created to perfectly match cheese and bread. It makes you want to !


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
