Dupont Spécial Belge: collaboration brings together Belgian, Philly beer cultures

A four-page piece on the Philly and Belgian beer scenes aired last weekend. Here is a snippet…

As is the Spécial Belge, the collaboration that is simmering away next door. Coordinated by Dupont’s pioneering importers Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield of Vanberg & DeWulf, it is the product of two years of conceptual discussions with Peters, and LaPierre offering fine-tuning input, too. The collaboration beer is roiling inside the kettles, a rich and biscuity foam rising nearly to the top. It is time to add the finishing hops so this Spéciale can begin to cool and start its fermentation. About 200 kegs and 1,300 bottles are to be shipped in time for a June 1 debut at Philly Beer Week’s Opening Tap.
