Polish IT engineer Jacek Korczak has won the French Agriculture Ministry's top award for his achievements in brewing.
Together with his French wife Anne, also an IT engineer, Korczak runs a brewery in the small locality of Mattenheim, near Strasbourg, which annually produces 70, 000 litres of Matten brand beer.
Korczak told Polish Radio that he took up brewing six years ago when he became fed up with the IT sector, adding that his recipe for success is straightforward. “Brewing has to be your passion, other than that you have to read a lot and talk to people. Then it’s all very simple”, he said.
The French ministry’s Prix d’Excellence is awarded in 34 categories covering a wide range of food and alcohol production. (mk/vb)
