Christophe Noyon's D-Day Ale has beaten 260
other beers to win the Gold Medal at Paris's
International Agricultural Exhibition 2014.
Brewed on France's Cote d'Opale, which looks north
towards the White Cliffs of Dover, the blonde ale has been
launched in Normandy where it is available at the landing
beaches and key points on the Remembrance Trail between
Cherbourg and Dunkirk.
Christophe and Alexia's story...
When my wife Alexia and I first married we lived in
Arromanche, overlooking Gold Beach and the D-Day
Mulberry Harbour nicknamed "Port Winston". It was here
that we learnt about and grew to appreciate the courage and
sacrifices made by the liberating troops. Our D-Day Ale
is a tribute to them and we hope it will help to keep
their memory alive.
With the growing interest in craft beers in France, the UK,
Canada and the US, where the market share is now at 15%,
we are sure that our D-Day Ale will have global appeal.
