Brasserie Thiriez is a small craft brewery located in Esquelbecq, a town in the Arrondissement of Dunkirk in the Nord d├ępartement, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais r├ęgion of France, quite close to the Belgian border. It is situated on the grounds that formerly housed the Poitevin farm brewery, which was active and served the local area until 1945. The current brewery was founded in 1996 by Daniel Thiriez, who had become interested in homebrewing as a college student, and later left his career as a "human resources professional for a large supermarket chain" in the interest of reviving the tradition of the small village brewery.

It exports beers in Europe, and the USA.
The brewery's focus is generally on light to medium-colored top-fermented beers with a pronounced hop presence, reflective both of some of the historic beers of the region and the owner's personal preference. There is a tasting room and tap on the brewery premises, at which bottled beer can also be purchased. The products are available in 33cl and 75cl glass bottles, large 2L growlers and on tap.

  • Authentic brasserie nestled in the beautiful village of Escquelbecq right next to the chateau. The beer is very good and the owners have 2 "chambres d'hotes" that are nice and comfortable.  more »
  • La petite princess is the best table beer/saison in the world. Daniel Thiriez is a great host with awesome English, don't be shy!
  • My wife and I had a great time. We don't speak French but the people were very hospitable and the beer was excellent. If I was going to start a microbrewery, I would model it after this one for sure!
