The beer is over! Discover the 'vière', a drink mixing beer and grapes, all fermented thanks to the wine-making process, for an alcohol with a unique taste.
Not really from beer , not really wine, the ' lives ' is the perfect fusion of these two drinks. More than a simple mixture, as for a cocktail, this alcohol is a hybrid . Developed by a Gallia Paris artisanal brewery in Pantin, it aims to revolutionize the world of beer and give it a new, more modern image.
To obtain this drink on the borderline between beer and wine, the Gallia Paris brewery combines wine and brewing know-how. The brewer Rémy Maurin explains in a video on his account Instagram as it's about a ' fermentation mix '. He does ' ferment grape and beer wort together '. The grapes are therefore pressed and fermented for a few days, 3 or 4 in general, then the beer wort is added carefully so as not to rush the bacteria and the yeast. The mixture is then co-fermented for several weeks, even several years. So the drink is obtained thanks to ' aging in barrels and amphoras and processes inspired by winemaking 'as the site announces. The 'vière' is more alcoholic than a classic beer, around 10°.
Currently, ten 'viers' are available and come in different grape varieties , such as Merlot, Muscat, Pinot Noir or even Carbenet and Riesling. 75 cl bottles can be bought on the site from the Gallia Paris brasserie or directly in the bar in Pantin in Seine-Saint-Denis, they are sold at 44 euros for a pack of three.
