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.

  • We have visited this location several times in conjunction with the annual Duvel on Tour happening. If the Duvel organization meetings is always in order up to the smallest details, during the tour word also everything step by step explained in details how the Duvel brewed word, if you do this for the first time this is really impressive. One was the last MSS Duvel on Tour 2016 they have for the first time in so many years there is a real disaster of made in terms of organization, signage, tender, ... for the rest TOP!

  • 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.
