The Saison Dupont is a top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle. Since 1844, this beer has been brewed in a farm-brewery, during the winter time. Then this beer became a second refermentation in the barrel. During the next summer, this very thirst-quenching beer was served to the “saisoniers” which were working on the fields. Coppery blond, the finest aromas and a strong bitterness transform this beer into a thirst-quenchener with no equal, just the way it was created. The selection of yeasts is the perfect base for these typical aromas and ditto taste. A real refermentation in the bottle, which will continue for a long time in your cellar, result into this complex and particular aromatic beer.
The Brasserie Dupont is a former farm dating back to 1759. In 1844, it became the Rimaux-Derrider farm-brewery, specialising in the production of honey and “Saison” (season) beers, so called because the farm-breweries produced this type of beer in winter for consumption on the fields in summer. In 1920, agronomist, Louis Dupont, was planning to buy a farm in Canada. To dissuade him from doing so, his father Alfred bought him this farm-brewery. Louis gave us a new take on the basic “Saison” recipe, known today by the name Saison Dupont.
