Dubuisson has been brewing continuously since 1769—before Belgium was a country and even longer than the famous Trappist breweries. The brewery is run by Hugues Dubuisson, the eighth-generation family member to direct the business. Hugues has mastered the craft of brewing, which his family has dedicated themselves to perfecting over decades. In 1933, when British ales were popular in Belgium, Hugues’ grandfather Alfred Dubuisson created a Belgian beer in the English barleywine style. Called Scaldis in the US, this beer has become the flagship of the brewery.
Faced with a loss of quality and education from the quickly expanding craft brewing scene worldwide, Dubuisson has created the Belgian Family Brewers group. The group is devoted to preserving Belgian beer culture and providing education to consumers on where and how their beer is being made.
