Built on the foundations of the city’s former Benedictine abbey, the VIVAT brewery bears a proud brewing heritage. Destroyed, rebuilt, then abandoned for 75 years, it was saved in 2000 and it is in 2004 that the first drops of VIVAT are released, giving a new dynamic to the site. The beer is made in open fermentation tanks allowing the hops to release all their aromas perfectly.
Open to visitors, the brewery is a real place of life and conviviality, like a living open-air museum, accessible to all, where tradition and innovation reign in harmony.
The restaurant installed in the old malthouse allows you to taste our beers around a regional, fresh and local dish. The project is to keep alive a place rich in history, to continue to renovate it into a place of welcome and sharing by promoting our regional know-how.
