Art Is An Ale Brewery is a craft brewery and taproom that is scheduled to open in Amboise on June 20th- just in time for Fête de la Musique! In order to learn more about this exciting project, I met up with Katie Peraudeau who is the co-founder of the brewery along with her husband, Matt.

We had so much to talk about and so much fun doing so that I decided to turn our interview into a two part series. In part one we learn about the background and idea behind Art Is An Ale Brewery as well as Katie’s thoughts on craft beer culture in France and the importance of bringing beer to the people!

There will surely be tons of news, events, and other exciting things coming from the brewery as they rev up for their grand opening and celebrate their first busy season in the charming town of Amboise. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram for more information and updates.

Thanks so much to Katie for taking the time to talk to me for this episode!

I’m excited to announce that a fully updated and expanded edition of My Paris Market Cookbook is now available for preorder on Amazon in the US and France. I’ll be heading to the States to spend time with family and tie in a few book events. If you’re in the Orange County area, I hope you’ll join me at my event at Laguna Beach Books where I’ll be talking about Paris food culture, signing books, and answering questions!
