Beer O’Clock: Duvel

Duvel is an incredibly delicious and strong golden ale made by the Duvel Moortgat brewery that was established in Belgium in 1871 by Jan-Leonard Moortgat. Duvel Moortgat was also one of the original investors in the small American brewery Omegang in Cooperstown NY. Duval Moortgat eventually took complete control of Omegang and established Moortgat distribution USA.

Like most Belgian ales, Duvel is high in alcohol and at 8.5% it packs a serious punch with in its complex flavors and wonderful golden color. We recommend drinking one of these with dinner. Enjoy it slowly as you’ll want to savor its yeasty and fruity aromas and flavor profiles and seemingly endless head in this new staple to our fridge.
