The Brasserie Dupont is a former farm dating back to 1759. In 1844, it became the Rimaux-Derrider farm-brewery, specialising in the production of honey and “Saison” (season) beers, so called because the farm-breweries produced this type of beer in winter for consumption on the fields in summer.
In 1920, agronomist, Louis Dupont, was planning to buy a farm in Canada. To dissuade him from doing so, his father Alfred Dupont bought him this farm-brewery. Louis Dupont gave us a new take on the basic “Saison” recipe, known today by the name Saison Dupont.
In 1942, Sylva Rosier left Aalst to settle in Tourpes and work with his uncle.
In 1945, Louis Dupont handed the Brasserie Dupont down to his nephew Sylva Rosier, brewing engineer and engineering consultant in Belgium and abroad.
After the Second World War, Pils beers became very popular. Many small Belgian breweries disappeared because they could not meet this demand. It was Sylva Rosier’s dynamism and technical knowledge that ensured the survival of the Brasserie Dupont with the introduction of Redor Pils.
Today, the Brasserie Dupont is owned by Sylva Rosier’s children and grandchildren. Sylva Rosier’s grandson, Ghislaine’s son, Olivier Dedeycker, joined the company in 1990 as a brewing engineer. In 2002, he took the helm of the family brewery from his uncle Marc Rosier. He represents the fourth generation of this family of brewers.
