Drinking Local Beer In New Caledonia
New Caledonia is not only blessed with sun, sea and great food, but it also offers some of the best natural water in the Pacific Ocean!
No wonder this island has been settled for millennia as the water is slowly filtered through rocks before to gush out at the feet of pretty high (over 2,000 metres in some cases) for such a small island!
A benediction for beer Brewers and beer lovers!
There are two distinct microbreweries in New Caledonia:
The first one, 3 Brasseurs, is actually a branch of a great microbrewery in France, which uses only local water.
It not only offers a range of four different beers, all made from pure malt and hops, unpasteurized and unfiltered:
Blonde (lager), Ambree (red ale), Scotch (porter) and Blanche (weizen)
but they also include a restaurant where you can eat all typical Alsatian Cuisine.

The other Brewery is the Grande Brasserie Neo-Caledonienne, a 100% local micro-brewery:
Great beer in a great hot spot in the Pacific! What else could you need?
