The Brasserie Dupont is a former farm dating back to 1759. In 1844, it became the Rimaux-Derrider farm-brewery, specializing 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 Dupont bought him this farm-brewery. Louis Dupont gave us a new take on the basic “Saison” recipe, known today by the name Saison Dupont.
