History of Dupont
Brasserie Dupont is a Belgian brewery founded in 1950 but operating as a brewing farm since 1759. Its first name was Rimaux-Derrider farm-brewery, producing honey and saison beers. The farm was bought in 1920 by Alfred Dupont, who gave it to his son Louis, who started to develop the saison recipe, and a few years later handed it to his nephew Sylva Rosier, who developed and managed to keep the brewery alive during WWII, and continuing the family tradition that lasts until today. Dupont is worldwide famous for their saisons, elaborated with a special yeast strain that allows them to ferment at unusually high temperatures (even higher than 32º).
