Duvel Moortgat Brewery, Puurs

(4.8/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.HistoryMoortgat brewery 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, NY, 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.

  • This local brewery is the home of the "Duvel", one of the best beers in the world. You can visit the brewery, but need to make reservations. In the shop you can buy some exclusive gifts.  more »
  • Pre-planned visit to Duvel brewery. Very well organized tour with the valve and tasting of your choice, with regard to the visit in the week end we had planted thereby one can see the bottlings and operation not. But sure and must be repeated.

  • Fun tour, but the process is not too much to see. It is also interesting to be able to go on a weekday because the bottling plant then it works.
