Enghien and Soignies triangle and is crossed by the
Sylle, the river from which the village takes its
name. Silly possesses a brewery that was founded in

by the 5th generation.
From 1947 the Brewery
became more prominent than the farm yet was still only
producing top fermentation beer like Grisette, Saison

range, today available in two forms: brown ale and lager.
