Huyghe Brewery (Dutch: Brouwerij Huyghe) is a brewery founded in 1906 in Belgium by Leon Huyghe in city of Melle in East Flanders. The site of the brewery has been in operation since 1654. However, the brewery has been modernized and expanded on several occasions since the founding of Huyghe. The brewery's most well known beer is Delirium Tremens, a blonde, Belgian-style trippel.
In January 2012 brewery Huyghe received a medal of honour from the Province of East-Flanders, as a recognition for their merits in the region. In July the beers Floris Kriek and Delirium Tremens won medals at the International Beer Challenge in London.
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Delirium Tremens, the beer masters of Brewery Huyghe have developed a special limited edition of the beer, which will only be available for a very short period in time.
