International Breweries & Beers (IBB) was created in November 1991. It aims to import and distribute beers and waters of all around the world for the French Market. Thanks to a great vision, a good team performance and the use of appropriate strategies, IBB is nowadays one of the leader beer distributors on the French market. IBB used his advanced knowledge on beer; to create his own home made speciality beers. To make this dream possible, IBB has made heavy investment for the acquisition and rehabilitation of two breweries:
- Brasserie Historique de l'Abbaye du Cateau
- Brasserie des Sources

In the Heart of a beer region
Contrary to common thoughts, France is not only producing wine & champagne. Indeed Northern France is ideal for the brewing activity as it shares Belgium beer and brewing passion and tradition adding the French touch. This part of France is producing famous "Bière de Garde" and so has it own type of beer.
"The Flemish corner (northern France) specializes in top fermented beers" by the famous expert on beer: Michael Jackson (1991).
The originality of our recipes added to a real "savoir-faire" (expertise) of our master brewers give to our beers incomparable flavour richness. All our beers were inspired by the most famous Belgium beers. Our beers are all top fermented which bring rounded and full bodied and so, can be described as "Ales". Most of them are fermented in bottle which ensure foam quality, natural gas production and taste complexity.
