MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. — One of the oldest and most respected producers of Belgian farmhouse ales, Brasserie Dupont, along with award winning brewery Lost Abbey, is proud to announce the release of a new collaboration, Deux Amis, in the U.S. this summer.
French for “Two Friends,” Deux Amis brings together two esteemed brewers who have long admired each other’s work—Olivier Dedeycker, fourth generation Master Brewer at Brasserie Dupont and Tomme Arthur, acclaimed Brew Master of Lost Abbey.
“I wanted to work with Tomme,” explains Dedeycker, “because I felt we had a similar love for Saisons, and with his American hops expertise, we could really create something incredible.” Tomme Arthur adds, “I fell in love with Belgian beers back in the middle 90’s and Dupont was one of those beers. The yeast character is just striking.”
Brewed in Belgium using Dupont’s 172-year-old brewing equipment, techniques, and its revered yeast strain, this collaboration marries the two brewer’s Saison styles and adds American Amarillo and Simcoe hops. The result of this kinship is a dry, refreshing Old World Saison full of peppery spice that finishes with New World flavors of floral orange and earthy pine.
Deux Amis will be available in kegs and 750 ml bottles. US Importer and Supplier, Total Beverage Solution, is proud to represent the brand in the US beverage market. Deux Amis is now available for pre-order by e-mailing BelgianExperts@TBSBrands.com.
