Beer runs thicker than blood.


Those who grew up with siblings, you know one thing to be true: that fierce competition and unwavering support can come from the same source. When it comes to sister breweries, beer runs even thicker than blood. Such is the case in the Duvel Moortgat family.

The Moortgat family of breweries began in 1871 in Belgium. Destined for greatness, we planted American roots in the 1990s by investing in the opening of Brewery Ommegang. Adding to the family, more Moortgat sisters followed soon after, including; 300+ year old Liefmans (est. 1679) in Belgium, Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri, and Firestone Walker Brewing Company in Paso Robles, California.

Occasionally competitors on the shelves, we are always collaborators behind the scenes. We share knowledge, equipment, storage space, and sometimes, in the case of our Blenderie program, beer. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship that propels each brewery to new heights.

Success requires support. Nobody, and no brewery, can do it alone. In good times and in bad, hoppy waters are much easier to navigate when you have a supportive family behind you. The breweries of the Duvel Moortgat family know this well. We work together to help each other succeed and to give every customer an unparalleled beer experience
