It's nearly impossible to talk about saisons without ending the sentence with "Dupont." And because we love Belgian-style beers, we picked up some Brasserie Dupont brews to remind ourselves of how good these beers can be.
Brasserie Dupont is located in French-speaking region of Wallonia in Belgium, not far from the French border, in the town of Tourpes. There has been brewing on the site continuously since 1844. After the DuPont family bought the brewery in 1920, brewer Louis Dupont established the tradition of re-fermenting all of the breweries offerings in bottles. Brewer and 4th generation Dupont family member Olivier Dedeycker took over in the 1990s. He has preserved its historic brewing traditions while upping production to more than 18,000 hectolitres. (Or 15,000 barrels, for you Americans.)
We tried the legendary Saison Dupont alongside three of the brewery's other offerings. Belgian beer-lovers, rejoice!
