The Route du Malt 2021 proposes a tour of the Hauts-de-France region to discover 7 distilleries and a dozen breweries. This 550km route links Lille, Valenciennes, Noyon, Amiens, Saint-Omer, passing through Arras and Lens.

A dozen hotel-restaurants are partners of this first edition and offer malted moments. Tourists can continue their tasting experiences of Hauts-de-France with beer and food menus, tastings of spirits produced in the region

What are the targets?
