Beer, gin and vodka.. made in Lebanon!

Meet Jamil Haddad.

In 2013, he decided to quit his job and move back to Batroun to start his own microbrewery. Colonel Beer

The windsurfer turned entrepreneur tapped into a difficult market full force, with passion and perseverance.

Today, in an eco-friendly environment made of upcycled wood pallets and green walls, his project consists of a microbrewery, brewpub, restaurant and beer garden, which hosts events all year long.

Not only does he produce a variety of high quality craft beers, he also recently started producing gin Gata Gin and vodka Secreterre Vodka (using Lebanese grains provided by local farmers).

Make sure to check out ColonelReef, the beach adjacent to the brewery where Jamil also opened a surf school in collaboration with the municipality of Batroun.

At BBS, we support Lebanese entrepreneurs!
