DUVEL - mastery in beer
Just like a beer, Mastery itself has a recipe. Or rather, a set of virtues.
These virtues are ingredients with which mastery in brewing – or in any craft – is achieved.
Many years ago, Duvel boldly went where no other brewers had gone before. We invented our own category of Golden Ale. It takes confidence to stand out from the crowd. So thanks for doing you own thing by drinking our own thing.
If you've ever done something in a hurry, you know it often ends in disappointment - and sometimes a full vody cast. So here's to an unhurried pour. Not only will it release Duvel's essential aromas, you can use the time to write a short poem: "Pour slow, there you go." On second thought, no poetry, please.
The "D" at the bottom of every Duvelo glass doesn't just stand for "Duvel" or "Delicious" or even "Damn, you've got good tast in beer." This etched letter actually creates a slow release of carbonation, ensuring a full, creamy head. For eternal perfection of our beer, there's nothing we won't do.
Jan Leonard Moortgat founded Duvel in 1871 because he loved beer. Four generations of Moortgats later, nothing has changed. Except for cars. And airplanes. And computers. Ok so a lot has changed. But rest assured, we still love brewing the most angelic devil of a beer.
A Duvel is still seen as the reference among strong golden ales. Its bouquet is lively and tickles the nose with an element of citrus which even tends towards grapefruit thanks to the use of only the highest-quality hop varieties. This is also reflected in the flavour, which is beautifully balanced with a hint of spiciness. Thanks to its high CO2 content, this beer has a wonderful roundness in the mouth. A Duvel is both the perfect thirst quencher and the ideal aperitif.
