We were heading to a local beer brewery for a visit. The Philomenn building seat right by the River Jaudy once we cross the bridge. It is a small brewery. The brand was created by two brothers in 2007, the logo for the beer is an image of a woman wearing the tradition headdress call " Touken ", she was Marie-Louise, the great grandmother of the two brothers. The tour was simple and brief, with standard information about the company and their products, followed by a beer tasting section at the end. The beer ain't bad and quite a refresh in fact, each with its unique favour, I quite like the Tourbee that came with a touch of whisky taste. You couldn't find the beer in shop and market, they deal directly to the local pub and restaurant.

we were wandering into the town of Treguier, and find it dotted with half-timbered houses dating from the 15th century, one fine example is the 17th-century house where the writer and philosopher Ernest Renan once lived, now also acted as a museum. The main sight in Treguier is probably the Cathedral of Saint Tugdual which dates from the 14th century, the mix architectural styles building stood right at the town's main square challenged by the controversial statue of Ernest Renan and the goddess Athena. The Cathedral is a beautiful piece of art, especially those outstanding stained glass windows depicted many story of the bible.
