BELGIAN CHALICE BEER GLASSES/PAIR
de la Brasserie Dupont
The Dupont Brewery (in French: Brasserie Dupont) is a brewery located in Tourpes (Leuze-en-Hainaut), in the centre of West-Hainaut, Belgium.
The current brewery, founded in 1950, is located on a working farm which dates back to 1759 and has significant brewing history.
Historically, their best-selling beer was the Moinette Blonde. However, the popularization of the Saison Dupont by their American importer in the 1980s has led to great international popularity for this beer, which provides a link to the historic farmhouse ales of the region.
Since 1970, the brewery has been brewing a special beer to give as a new years present to their best clients.
(the name of this beer “Avec les bons Vœux de la brasserie Dupont » means « With the best wishes of the brewery Dupont » ).
Because of the increasing success, they started to commercialise this “cadeau” but kept the name.
Although the demands were considerable, only a small quantity was brewed, so they had to make a reservation list, even months before new year.
