Duvel Moortgat Brewery, Puurs

4.6
Duvel Moortgat Brewery is a Flemish family-controlled brewery founded in 1871. Its strong golden pale ale, Duvel, is exported to more than forty countries. Duvel is Brabantian, Ghent and Antwerp dialect for devil, the standard Dutch word being duivel.HistoryThe brewery Moortgat was founded in 1871 by Jan-Leonard Moortgat, who was descended from a family of brewers that lived in Steenhuffel, Belgium. In the 1950s, the third generation of Moortgats took control of the brewery.In the early 1970s, when the company was struggling financially, Moortgat bottled and distributed the Danish beer, Tuborg. The two companies ended this arrangement in the early 1980s, but it did save the brewery who, by then, had managed to also set up massive distribution channels for their flagship beer, Duvel. In June 1999, Duvel Moortgat NV went public on Euronext Brussels.Duvel Moortgat was an original investor in the Brewery Ommegang craft brewery founded in Cooperstown, New York, in the late 1990s. More recently, the Belgian company took over complete control of the brewery and founded a stateside sales organization Duvel USA to handle both Ommegang and Duvel Moortgat brands and others.

  • A fun and educational tour. Nice regarding its conception, only on Saturdays not in operation. Then you just miss the bustling! But otherwise top! Thanks for the good care and great atmosphere!

  • Duvel and other beers. First a particularly professional film seen. Beautiful tour, discovery brought by very good guides. After great tasting, in a very nice area. To the brewery is also a terrace to sit outside when the weather is nice.

  • Awesome brewery and knowledgeable and enthusiastic personnel. This brewery has a bar where you can order all their drinks and also has a gift shop with tons of Duvel branded goodies.
  • I got a special VIP tour of the brewery with our zythology class so I can't comment on the standard tours, but Duvel is such a big name in the Belgian Beer Scene and the brewery is well worth a visit!
  • We went there for our wedding pictures and actually half way through our wedding shoot, we were more interesting in brewing process, so definitely a to do! And they gave us free drinks, so in the end we stressed our wedding photographer for not keeping the schedule. Go sit in one of the old delivery cars
  • Great visit wonderful beer
