La Cagole is a blonde Pilsen-style beer created in Marseille in 2003. It is the brainchild of two lifelong friends, who hit upon the idea while they were having a drink in a summerhouse, somewhere down the coast from Marseille.
The term cagole refers to a young lady from the Calanques area of coastline to the east of Marseille, renowned for their rustic charm.
The two creators, beer lovers nostalgic for the old Marseille, envisaged a beer that matched the colour of the masonry in the city’s old port, a golden beer with a Provençale accent.
The first Cagole beers were produced in a microbrewery in the city’s Panier quarter, homage to long-forgotten regional beers such as Velten, Phénix, and Marx.
