The excellence of Alsatian gastronomy in the Kaysersberg valley
In Alsace, gastronomy is an art of living! Quality products, respect for the seasons, the art of preparation, respect for traditions, creativity and rigour are the foundations of Alsatian cuisine, which many envy us.
As proof, our craftsmen and restaurateurs are recognised beyond our region, sometimes even internationally. Every year, numerous distinctions reward their know-how and their excellence. Let’s take a look at some of the titles obtained in recent months by our Alsatian craftsmen.
Best French beer for the Brasserie Bisaigue
The Brasserie Bisaigue of Kaysersberg had the honour of receiving a gold medal in the “Gose” category as well as the title of Best French Beer by the prestigious Brussels Beer Challenge, an international reference competition with 1800 beers tasted and 41 countries represented. The award-winning beer, Marius Beer, was created at the Chambard bar in Kaysersberg, with Jean-Baptiste Klein, sommelier at Olivier Nasti’s Table. A beautiful and successful collaboration, congratulations to them!
