Vanberg and DeWulf's Coast to Coast Toast is just one
OK, so just what is this event? Well, it's a celebration of
importing Belgian brews into the USA for 30 years.
Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield, the husband
and wife duo that are Vanberg and DeWulf, first started
importing Belgian beers stateside in 1982.
They were the first to import Duvel, Rodenbach, and
many other hallowed beers from "The Beer Country"
to our shores.
Currently, Don and Wendy import several beers from Brasserie
Dubuisson, which are labeled as Scaldis in the USA, and Bush in
much of Europe. It's just about time for Scaldis Noel, and Scaldis
Prestige and Prestige de Nuits always hit the spot. Scaldis,
Scaldis Triple and Scadis Refermetee are also fine brews.
They also import the Witkap beers of Brouwerij Slaghmuylder,
as well as several from the new Brouwerij Dilewyns of Dendermonde.
Several other special brews, such as Lambrucha, Hop Ruiter
and Lambickx are also brought in.
Their best known brewery, though, is certainly Brasserie Dupont
of Tourpes, in Hainaut Province. With a dozen world-class Dupont
brews on their import list, including Saison Dupont, Moinette,
Cervesia, and Avec les Bons Voeux, Don and Wendy have an incredible
portfolio from this world-renowned brewery.
As mentioned in the previous post, here, I have produced a movie
and article about the brewery, which publicans can download
and show attendees next week.
In fact, I will be at The Brewer's Art in Baltimore next Tuesday,
where we will show the Dupont movie. And enjoy a few beers,
