The sleepy green L’Hogneau river valley is home to the village of Gussignies, literally meters from the Belgian border. This is the French border region of Bavay, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, home to Brasserie Au Baron, makers of the classic French pale Biere de Garde Cuvée des Jonquilles. In addition to the Jonquilles, bottles of the Medard Ambree and Medard Brune are available at the brasserie, for takeaway or to sit and enjoy streamside.

The servers are young and take no care in pouring bottles, so if you prefer a clear pour and do not have a taste for paint in your beer, either be mindful of their handling or ask to pour for yourself.
