When the Caussebinds with beer

KOS Brewery, Mas du Verdier EN

In the heart of the Causses du Quercy, on the edge of the typical paths of the GR65, is the brasserie KOS, Mas du Verdier, an authentic place where beers with a unique taste are made. Stop by for a few moments to meet Céline and Aurélien, two passionate enthusiasts who will share their love of beer with you.


and share

After several years in different jobs, Celine and Aurélien felt like having a common project of their own. Together, they wanted to create a business that resembled them. Passionate about pastry, Aurélien explains, “In beer, as in making a cake, you need rigor and to like sharing. The notion of quality process is also essential, I acquired it with my experience in the aeronautics industry and then adapted it to the brewery.” The location was quickly found, a restored family barn, surrounded by incredible wilderness. Creating, they both love it, so the ideas flowed and quickly the brewery KOS, Mas du Verdier was born!


organic and local

One of the strong values at KOS is the notion of proximity. The Bio, “it was an obvious choice, we wanted to offer beers in line with our values, our state of mind.” All raw materials are rigorously selected. The malted cereals come from the Occitane maltings. The raw cereals, on the other hand, are produced at a neighboring organic farmer. “Once the beer is produced, we give him back our waste, which is used to feed his pigs. We have an approach that aims to save resources.” The hops, less easy to find in France, are from Europe but Aurélien and Céline are looking to find closer. For special recipes, the melon comes from theCélé valley, the safran is grown at home… “We are in a continuous improvement process, we question ourselves often to have the most authentic tastes possible.” There you have the recipe for success: good local products, two creative minds and a rigor in the quality! Makes you want to taste, right? 400 hectoliters of beer are going to be produced this year, there is definitely one for you!
