Brasserie de Silly
Beers from Brasserie de Silly currently at the Mayor:
Last century saw large farms in Hainaut brewing barley and hops.
Silly is a village lying in the Ath, Enghien and Soignies triangle and is crossed by the Sylle, the river from which the village takes its name. Silly possesses a brewery that was founded in 1850 as Cense de la Tour, and that is today operated by the 5th generation.
From 1947 the Brewery became more prominent than the farm yet was still only producing top fermentation beer like Grisette, Saison and Scotch.
Several years later in 1950 when the Brewery already had a chain of bars, it began producing a bottom fermentation beer Pils as part of its product range.
1975 is noted for the purchase of the Tennstedt Decroes Brewery in Enghien which meant that it could add Double Enghien to its range, today available in two forms: brown ale and lager.
1990 saw the creation of a white beer known as Blanche Titje. This beer together with Saison de Silly, Double Enghien and Divine, have contributed to the growth of this independent and traditionally based family business.
But it doesn’t stop there! Research efforts have helped in producing the latest family beer, a pink grapefruit flavoured white beer: Pink Killer, with a bright promising future.
