The Dupont Brewery was founded in 1920 when Alfred Dupont purchased as a gift for his son, Louis, a small farm and brewery in the town of Tourpes in Belgium. Louis, an agricultural engineer, proved a hands-on farmer and brewmaster and began producing saison and table beers for local distribution only.
The next decades, however, would see brewing operations expand, and by the 1950s the brewery was specializing in high quality, top fermented ales with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Dupont beers grew steadily in popularity and demand.
Today the brewery - still owned by the Dupont family and still a working farm that includes a bakery and an artisanal cheese making facility on site - exports award-winning ales to countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, and Italy.
