Located on the port, Monaco’s only brewery produces more than 100,000 litres of beer per year. Its four beverages, inspired by the original 1905 brewery, can be enjoyed on the terrace or at the foot of the brewing vats.

There was La Brasserie de Monaco in the Fontvieille district, from 1905 to 1972, then its rebirth, in 2008, on the Port of Monaco. For 15 years, Monegasque businessman Gildo Pastor has been perpetuating the tradition and spirit of the original Brewery.

The Brasserie de Monaco is one of the emblematic brands of Port Hercule. In the back of the room, behind the bar, this is where Valentin and Maxence produce the Blonde, the Blanche, the Ambrée and the star of the month of December: the Christmas beer.

Like all the ingredients that enter these places, the malts are organic, come from sustainable sources and are imported from nearby countries (in the same spirit, deliveries from La Brasserie de Monaco are made using electric vehicles).

In a decor combining stainless steel and raw wood, here, facing the sea, beer is made, but we also taste it! The atmosphere is refined, relaxed, trendy, cool and festive thanks to the evenings with resident DJs every day until 2 am.

“The place to beer’ is also the epicentre of the Principality’s major events, first and foremost the Formula 1 Grand Prix. To accompany its beers, the Brasserie de Monaco also offers quality, homemade catering, which emphasises regional specialties and promotes artisanal cuisine.
