The Moinette Blonde is a top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle.
Ever since its creation in 1955, this beer is considered as “the showpiece” of the brewery Dupont on the Belgian market.
For centuries, the region where the brewery is situated, was pretty swampy, (swamp = marais (français moderne) = moëne (français ancient), so the name Moinette was linked to this “moëne region”.
In the little village of Tourpes existed also a mill and a “Cense de la Moinette”, both belonged to the Dupont dynasty. (cense = farmstead).
Originally, the name “Abbaye de la Moinette” was used for this beer, but since 1980 the name “Moinette” has become the commercial name.
Coppery blond with many fine hop aromas, the Moinette Blonde is a very refreshing beer, thanks to its subtle balance between sweet, bitter and fruity.
The selection of our yeasts gives this beer its typical aroma and taste.
A real refermentation in the bottle, which continues for a long time in your cellar, results in a complex taste and harmonious bouquet.
The Moinette Brune is a top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle.
Since its creation in 1986 this beer becomes more and more famous.
A melange of 4 special malts results into this unusual colour, light darkbrown going into russet. The aromas of hop and special malts are creating the dominating taste in this beer.
The Moinette Brune combines a slightly bitterness with a fruity touch.
A real refermentation in the bottle, which will continue for many months in your cellar, will transform this product into a quite surprising beer.
The Saison Dupont is a top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle.
Since 1844, this beer has been brewed in our 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.
Surely therefore, our Saison Dupont is considered as “the classic” among the Belgian season beers!
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.
Our 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 Bons Vœux is a blond top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle.
Since 1970, the brewery has been brewing a special beer to give as a new years present to their best clients. (the name of this beer “Avec les bons Vœux de la brasserie Dupont » means « With the best wishes of the brewery Dupont » ).
Because of the increasing success, they started to commercialise this “cadeau” but kept the name. Although the demands were considerable, only a small quantity was brewed, so they had to make a reservation list, even months before new year.
This Bons Vœux is coppery blond, has very fine hoparomas and tastes bitter, fruity and mild.
Our selection of yeasts, in combination with a longduring riping process, on a “dry hopping” base, are creating a typical and complex aroma and taste.
A real refermentation in the bottle, which will continue for a long time in your cellar, result in a harmonious and well-balanced beer, full of unexpected and complex aromas.
Moinette Ambrée is a top-fermented amber beer, refermented in the bottle.
First crafted in 2016, Moinette Ambrée enables us to present a trilogy centred on one of our star products, La Moinette.
Its colour, flavour and aromas result from brewing a blend of five different malts.
When tasting this beer, the aromas of special malts and fine hops dominate: the combination of fruit and bitterness give Moinette Ambrée its beautiful balance.
Genuine refermentation in the bottle, which may be extended by several months in your cellar, creates this harmonious and refreshing beer.
Saison Dupont Dry Hopping
Saison Dry Hopping was first brewed in 2010. In line with the Dupont tradition, this is a top-fermented blond beer, refermented in the bottle. The special feature of this beer, which is produced in limited quantities, is that the hops used for the “dry hopping”1 are different every year. This year, three distinctive hop varieties were selected. For the dry hopping, brews were made from the “Styrian Eureka” variety, grown in Slovenia. The result is a coppery, blond beer, dry and refreshing with sustained bitterness. The use of Styrian Eureka in Dry Hopping intensifies the fruity notes (mainly white fruits and citrus - mainly grapefruit) and gives the beer a perfume of fresh hops. Our selection of yeasts gives the beer very specific aromas and flavours. The genuine bottle refermentation, which may be extended by a long period in your cellar, produces a complex and highly aromatic beer.

Monk's Stout Dupont
The Monk’s Stout Dupont is part of the Brewery Dupont’s history. Indeed, it was produced in the 50’s. The aim is to revive this stout while maintaining the name and the design of the time.
Created in 2011, this dark beer is characterized by a dry and bitter taste. The use of roasted malts lends a well-pronounced taste of coffee and chocolate. The hop flavours remain perceptible though.
Top fermentation beer with a refermentation in the bottle.
The only exception in our range of beers is the Rédor, a bottom fermentation “pils” beer, filtrated but not pasteurised.
Indeed, although we are specialised in the production of top fermentation beers with refermentation in the bottle, the brewery has chosen to keep the production of a “pils” beer.
The Rédor is a pure malt “pils”, which means we only use the barley malt as starch.
We do not add grains, so the Rédor becomes a tasteful “pils” with a real bitterness.
A seasonal beer brewed using the Vieille Provision method (Saison).
Brewed using malted barley and malted spelt.
Exclusive use of Savinjski Golding hops, grown in Belgium.
A rustic, dry, refreshing amber beer.
Aromas of malt (biscuit, hazelnut), hops and citrus fruit.
Fruity notes and a hint of sustained bitterness.
This beer is a nod to the regular occupation (over decades) of some of the Brasserie Dupont buildings by a number of pairs of swallows.
