The ancestor of soft drinks, a small beer is a sparkling drink created via fermentation. Back in the day, those in the colonies as well as in Europe took the malts from regular beer, and recycled them to brew a sparkling beverage low in alcohol. In New France, it was usually made with molasses or brown sugar. This thirst-quenching drink was often reserved for workers and children.


Traditionally, Americans drank root beer, while British leaned more towards ginger beer. French settlers preferred spruce beer. All theses rich traditions are what inspired our brand name: LA P’TITE, the grandest of all small beers!
