Vanberg & DeWulf | Brasserie Dupont's Next Big Breakout Beer - La Biere de Beloeil

12 September 2013

imageFrom Vanberg & DeWulf:

We're thrilled with the deft, spot on encomium La Biere de Beloeil from Brasserie Dupont received in Ken Weaver's tone poem on this "especially unique offering  from one of the world's truly inspirational farmhouse breweries - Brasserie Dupont" .  We know you are all busy, but please take 10 minutes to read this brilliant review - Feature this dazzling beer on your tap and bottle list of fall beers and make new friends and fans. Could this be the next great breakout beer from the legendary Dupont? Check out these excerpts and see if you don't think the answer is ... Yes.

"Brasserie Dupont is regularly cited as one of the planet's finest breweries. Offerings like the core Saisons, Moinettes, Avec les Bons Voeux continue to challenge American palates (via the spicy Dupont yeast) and American brewers (who make great efforts to replicate its effects here).  It's hard enough to say that we think as highly of any beer as we do Saison Dupont - at least it makes more sense when it comes from the same source. This could quite possibly be the most overlooked beer in Brasserie Dupont (sic Vanberg & deWulf's entire lineup) Whereas Saison Dupont leans towards a firm bitterness and yeast forward approach, La Biere de Beloiel opens up to something else entirely. While categorized as a strong saison - it reeminded us a great deal of those most layered, smooth and honeyed of quadrupels..It is a seemless nectar that is effortlessly light.... One could enjoy this beer endlessly. As one can tell I am pretty enamored of this beer.

Saison Dupont Cuvee - Dry Hopping 2013 Coming to U.S.

05 January 2013

imageFrom Vanberg & Dewulf:

After 5 years of making Belgians extremely happy with their special seasonal release a dry-hop version of SAISON DUPONT, Vanberg & DeWulf and Brasserie Dupont are now able to make American drinkers equally happy. Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping 2013 will be available this May only featuring the famous TRISKEL hop varietal from Alsace.

Triskel is bred from the French Strissespalt and English Yeoman hops. Dupont’s master brewer Oliver Dedeycker describes it as “combining the aromatic notes, mainly floral, of Strisselspalt with the fruity character of Yeoman.” The unusual name, Triskel, was apparently inspired by triskelion, the symbol of the Gauls, those beer drinking ancestors of the French, which represents the three elements: Earth, Air and Water.

Cuvee 2013 will be available in the following formats & pricing:

case 12x75cl
20L Microstar kegs
30L KeyKegs.

Distributors in the Vanberg & DeWulf network will be able to preorder their supplies of Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping only in January for delivery in April.



Described as ” very dense and persistent yellow-tinted head, leaving classical lacerings over hazy orange beer with a mossy sheen. Hop power – if a bit fleetingly – with white candi sugar, and very yeasty esters. Hop presence very clear – but no USA hops, mind you, not citrussy at all. Fresh cucumber flavour, as well as wheaty grain, and mild fruit acids in the finish. Extremely refreshing, well-carbonated, light to medium body.”

WILK Friday BeerBuzz Overextended Holiday Spectacular - Part 3 (Video)

WILK Friday BeerBuzz Overextended Holiday Spectacular 1- Hour

WILKFridayBeerbuzz2Xmas

Each year during the holiday season, the WILK Friday BeerBuzz team creates a very special holiday gift.  Since nothing says Christmas like over-extending yourself, each year we dive in to a 1-hour 4-segment holiday spectacular and each year we present this special program on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

Since this is our third annual holiday spectacular we decided to go big with multiple beers, multiple guests, food, video and even the triumphant return of our patented beer-cam.  For this years show we invited Chef Kate Gabriel from the Rustic Kitchen at the Mohegan Sun casino, we invited Jaime Jurado & Fred Maier from Susquehanna Brewing to premier a new beer and to round that all out we added in admitted beer-pragmatist WNEP weatherman Joe Snedeker.  Of course we insist everyone stays for all four segments and helps us sample each beer so be sure to tune in to the video and see how this all works out.
image
For segment # 1 we chose to feature Corsendonk Christmas Ale.  This classic Belgian brew was the perfect way to not only sample a great holiday ale, but also pair it with food prepared in the studio by Chef Kate Gabriel.  Kate created an amazing Porcini Mushroom Risotto and what's even more amazing is that she did it in the WILK break room.  Needless to say the combination of mushrooms, parmesan, spices and herbs was the perfect compliment to the Corsendonk Christmas Ale and Kate was even nice enough to tell us the recipe.  It was a lot of fun talking beer & food pairing with Kate and we’ll certainly invite her back again to talk beer and food.  Be sure to check out Chef Kate’s website where she offers cooking lessons…she shops, she teaches you how to prepare the menu in your own home and cooks it with you, she cleans up and you eat.  Not a bad deal and a wonderful gift too!  image
Kate is also working on the military cookbook project…a great project where she is collecting the stories and recipes that our military members miss most from home.  Check out the website and submit your stories & recipes to this great project.

imageSegment # 2 featured a perennial favorite Christmas Ale called Delirium Noel.  Coming to us from  Brewery Huyghe in Melle Belgium, this classic brew celebrates the season with a robust Belgian dark ale.  Delirium features the pink elephant which according to them is one of their “states of mind” of Delirium and after seeing the alligator, dragon, and Hitchcock birds…I’ll take the Elephant.  Delirium Noel is 10% ABV and is a holiday beer you must try for yourself.  Dating back to 1650 and recently celebrating their 350th Anniversary, Brewery Huyghe makes some amazing beers, and if you’re ever in Brussels, be sure to check out the HUGE selection of beers at the Delirium Café.
image
For segment # 3 I selfishly chose to feature one of my all-time favorite holiday beers…Brasserie Dupont Avec les bons Voueux.  This specialty seasonal Saison starts with a classic Saison style and bumps it up to make a very special 9.5% ABV holiday Saison.  Dupont is know for making one of the best Saisons in the world, so it is no surprise that their holiday beer is extra special.  Avec les bons Voueux translates to “With best wishes” as this beer was originally a specialty brew given to clients, customers and family members at the brewery.  With increasing demand, Dupont decided to make it available to the world and we’re thankful they did.  Known for having an amazing and secretive yeast strain, Dupont is believed to use several strains of yeast for primary & secondary fermentation as well as a 3rd strain for their bottle-conditioning.  Try this beer and see for yourself why Dupont makes some of the best beers in the world.
image
For segment 4, Jaime Jurado and Fred Maier from Susquehanna Brewing Co joined us to sample three different SBC beers.  We all enjoyed their Pils Noir, regarded as the world’s only jet black pilsner-style beer.  This beer is infinitely drinkable and the play of beer color and beer style will leave you wanting to try more and more.  Next up Jaime was nice enough to bring us some of SBC’s fresh-hop beer called Centennial Helles.  This beer uses Centennial Hops in the brewery’s hopjack to impart a wonderful hoppy flavor into this traditional Helles-style beer.  I really liked this harvest beer and I look forward to trying it again.  As a special surprise, Jaime and Fred were nice enough to share with us a new beer with the premier of Susquehanna Brewing Co Hopfive IPA.  Keep in mind this program was recorded in early December, and while Hopfive is available now, we were lucky enough to try a pre-release sample on the show.  Coming in at 6% ABV and using 5 hop varieties, this is a tasty IPA and one I think will become an SBC best-seller.


fbbXmas2012SnedTo add to the fun, we invited in our pal and WNEP weather-dude Joe Snedeker.  Joe will admit that beer is just beer to him and a means to an end more than anything, so we had our hands full trying to convince him beer can be something more.  Joe was a really good sport as he sampled all of our beers, kept an open mind and gave us his honest opinions as we sampled each.  In the end I’m not sure we won him over as a craft beer convert, but rest assured we’ll certainly keep trying.

Dupont / Iron Hill Spéciale Belge For Philly Beer Week (UPDATE)

03 March 2012

image


Courtesy of Jack Curtin…here’s a peek at the Brasserie Dupont / Iron Hill Maple Shade called Spéciale Belge or Belge Dupont Spéciale …brewed as the first co-brew from Dupont in 166 years….this will premier @ Philly Beer Week 2012 in 750ml bottles and come in at 6.75% ABV.  Coming to you from Brewmasters Olivier Dedeycker  & Chris LaPierre, this one should be one of the most special Philly Beer Week beers.

From philly.com

TOURPES, Belgium - Frost lingers in the Wallonian morning air as a group of sleepy Philadelphians arrives early to the cobblestone courtyard of Brasserie Dupont.

The legendary farmhouse brewery, in the Belgian countryside a few miles from the French border, has agreed to collaborate on a special brew with a contingent of brewers and bar owners representing Philly Beer Week. To be poured at the Philadelphia festival this summer, it will be the first collaboration in the brewery's 166-year history - a fact that speaks both to the prominence of the city's annual beer celebration and its special relationship with Belgian producers.
