Fantome

Location: Soy, Belgium

This small and idiosyncratic craft brewery is located in the part of Wallonia known as the Ardennes, a French-speaking area of south-eastern Belgium. Situated at the northern edge of the tiny village of Soy in the Marche-en-Famenne district of Luxembourg province, it occupies a modest stone farmhouse on the main road through the town.

Founded in 1988, Brasserie Fantôme has gained international renown and a cult following among lovers of craft beers. Owned and run by the unabashedly quirky Dany Prignon, Fantôme is known for its unique variations on the Saison style of farmhouse ale, often involving the use of herbs, spices or fruit juice. Although their products are famously variable in quality and availability, many beer lovers consider them highly desirable and they have developed a significant audience in the United States and United Kingdom. While their complex earthy, herbal and sometimes sour flavors have caused them to be sought out by connoisseurs outside of Belgium, Fantôme's products are difficult to find and not well-known in the country of their origin.

The name of the brewery stems from a legend of the nearby town of La Roche-en-Ardenne, which asserts that the ghost of the long-dead Countess Berthe de La Roche can still be seen walking amidst the ruins of the town's castle.
