If you think the craft beer trend isn’t going anywhere, you’re wrong. This year, too, sees the worldwide brewing movement continue – and it’s not only the “big names” who are involved. Hobby and professional brewers support regionality, transparency, and creativity. For three years now Luxembourg, too, has been enriched by a member of the beer brewing scene: Twisted Cat. Passionate doers with supporters from four countries conquer the global beer market from the Grand Duchy. Gabriel Boisante, the Franco-Luxembourgish businessman, is, as one of the six owners, part of the parcel.
“My partners Ray, Tom, and me unites, how should it be any different, a passion for beer and brewing. We’ve noticed, for a while now, that many people in Luxembourg have developed an interest in more original beers that are different to the classic varieties of the traditional brands,” so says Boisante. “Four years ago, we did a test run in the bar Urban on Luxembourg’s National Day, and that went so well that we decided to start a business.”
The smooth craft beer with the unusual name is to be fresh and quaffable and so is anything but tart. It is a truly fresh beer, and the aromas of mango and passion- fruit are liked by all. These days, Twisted Cat also offers an alcohol-free beer. But not only taste and looks are important, taking responsibility for sustainable think- ing and actions are priorities for the business: no excess single-use materials are produced. Twisted Cat Beer delivers only in reusable barrels and so reduces their and our CO2 footprint.
Further, the Twisted Cat team wants to create a community that extends beyond its core business by imparting their know-how to clients. As far as possible, courses for groups are being offered, and grains and hops sold to aspiring beer brewers. Beer lovers will find Twisted Cat at several petrol stations, in all major super- markets, and popular foodie places, such as Cocottes, Charles Sandwiches, Bazaar, Mamacita, The Tube, Come à la maison and many more. “We want to continue to expand our presence in the Horeca sector here; one should be able to drink Twisted Cat everywhere,” says Gabriel Boisante. “The name of our beer is recognisable: it has something mysterious; it induces questions. It fits with our thirst for knowledge that drives us. We want to continue to expand and make our beer – born & made in Luxembourg – known across borders.”
