our springs : a matter of pride since 1820

At the foot of our mountains

Thermal center in 1910
The story began in 1820 in the heart of the Pyrenees. Ogeu Group's great adventure started when a thermal cure center was created right at the springs location and later when a mineral water bottling plant was set up there. Ogeu Group has now become the leader of the regional water market in France.
Since it was founded, the company has been ruled by the same family. Today the company's CEO Jean-Hervé Chassaigne and his sister Pascale Lapassade go on writing the story of the Group's great adventure which began nearly 200 years ago at the foot of our mountains.

We are proud to keep the strong distinctive quality of our springs alive in the heart of our territories.

This pride also derives from the conviction that our natural, still and sparkling waters give testimony to the varied and interlinked cultures of the Pyrenees, Britany, Ile de France and Provence. There lie the strengh of our involvement and the root of our pride.

Quezac
Natural water
from a genuine land
In the heart of the Gevaudan province juts out the Causses plateau, a wilderness where weather elements fight each other unrelentingly, where rocks battle the wind, where plants take root in the heart of the rocky massifs.

Waters seep into this steep landscape and give birth in their midst to Quezac water. Its decades-long journey gives the water its legendary strength and makes it sparkle with millions of miraculous bubbles.

In the flourishing environment of regional beers, Ogeu intends to play a leading role in South Western France as a brewer.

Our company Brasserie des Pyrenees is a subsidiary of OGEU Group. Our beers are conceived and produced by our on-site brewers and we take care of the bottling process.
  • Sarriat, Beer from the Pyrenees
  • Hapchot, Beer from Landes
  • Belharra, Beer from Pays Basque
A local business model

Unlike some so called "homemade" beers which are produced far from the location they refer to, Ogeu has an ambitious plan :

  • Brew its craft beer in the south western of France
  • Bottle its craft beer in Ogeu Les Bains
  • Enhance local links by actively promoting the richness our Basque, Landes and Pyrenees lands and cultures, while proposing an economical model where proximity is the key word
Sarriat
Sarriat, beer from the Pyrenees
In the Pyrenees, we have our mountains, our streams, our protected areas, cheeses and marmots. We needed a beer as fresh, distinctive and dynamic as our izards.

Here is SARRIAT. What does Sarriat mean? It means little izard, an elusive and free animal in love with its Pyrenees. Leaping and curious, unfazed by heights and conventions, it is proud of its mountains and the treasures they hold. Water is one of the best treasures in the Pyrenees. Pure, with a neutral taste, enriched by the landscape it has crossed, this water had to be joined to a beer

Your beer.
In a flourishing environment of regional beers, Ogeu intends to play a leading role in South Western France as a brewer.

Hapchot
Hapchot, beer from Landes
Born in 2012, our craft beer is brewed according to a traditional process in our "made in South-Western France" HAPCHOT factory.

Our brewer Maylis has designed a beer in harmony with the Landes spirit : it is simple and refined. Light and refreshing, it will astonish you with its large flavour range in harmony with its sweet bitterness.

Belharra
Belharra, beer from Pays Basque
As we told you, with the pure water flowing from our mountains, our brewer's caring and passionate energy, the watchful eye of the Atlantic ocean and Bayonne battlements ensuring our protection, we had better achieve a great beer. This beer belongs to you : it tells the story of our land and our land is Basque.

Far from being a stereotype, this beer is like you. Our pride resides wholly in the name we gave it : Belharra, meaning hay, grass in the basque language, as the simple tribute we owe to our land, our roots and what we deeply are.
Extean Egina means home made : it is a strong promise not to be trifled with. Belharra is a beer of friendliness and exchange. But is it like the others ?

Beware of fakes : this beer is as magical and sparkling as the golden hues of our mountains and the crest of our waves. This beer is our beer, you were warned. Welcome to the Basque Country.
