The Stoquart team quenches its thirst for knowledge
As it cannot count itself among the ranks of distinguished beer connoisseurs, the Stoquart team is keen to demonstrate its curiosity and outward-looking attitude by constantly widening the range of subject areas in which its linguists work every day. It was with this in mind that a small delegation recently headed off to Le Roeulx – just a short hop from the Mons office – for a behind-the-scenes tour of the St-Feuillien Brewery.
From the history of the famous family business to the practical operation of current production technologies, the tour provided the perfect opportunity to discuss a number of topics which are often mentioned in the material we translate for this prestigious local client, for whom preserving craftsmanship is a matter of pride. Thanks to this short immersion in the brewing industry, our linguists were able to glean a wealth of information which will undoubtedly prove very useful to them in their future work: the cold hopping process, what a mash tun is used for, the difference between wort and draff, the process for cleaning out barrels before filling them…
And the all-round sensorial experience could only end in one way – with a chance to sample a few of the company’s products. Cheers!
