The history of...Brouwerij Dilewyns
Brewery Dilewyns was founded by Vincent Dilewyns in Dendermonde, East Flanders. Vincent started out at home in Grembergen as a hobby brewer. The brewer's blood runs in the family: Vincent’s ancestors have been brewing beer in Grembergen since the 19th century. When Vincent was asked in 2005 to donate his Vicar Tripel during an exhibition on the brewing history of Grembergen, the ball started rolling: as early as 2006, the Vicar Tripel was winning its first prizes. The Vicaris beers are high quality Belgian beers which embrace innovation. The Tripel-Gueuze is a good example of this: a special mix of freshly sour Geuze and a soft, fruity Tripel.
