Duvel Tripel Hop

Duvel Moortgat started experimenting with extra hop additions in their now famous brew “Duvel” prior to 2007.  The idea came from an old advertisement for Moortgat “Hopbier” from many years ago.   In 2007, this hoppy version of Duvel was released, and sold out in a matter of hours.  When the idea came up to brew it again, the brewery made this stipulation.  Their facebook page had to break 10,000 fans.

As you can probably assume, the 10,000 mark was exceeded and the beer has arrived.  3 varieties of hops were chosen for Tripel Hop.  Styrian Golding and Saaz are used in the original Duvel, with Amarillo joining the party in this beer.  Tripel is dry hopped with Styrian Golding.
