This beer was initially brewed by the now defunct Seigneuriale brewery in Boucherville. Unibroue decided to revive it in 2012, in honour of its name and unique recipe.
The "Régime Seigneurial" flourished in New France until the mid-nineteenth century. In 1667, Pierre Boucher, Sieur de Grosbois, established a seigneurie in Boucherville on the South Shore of Montreal. The last three seigneurs resided in the sumptuous François Pierre Boucher manor of Boucherville, which was built in the 1750s and declared a historical monument in 1974. This ale is dedicated to these ancestral roots.
