The Story of Merchant du Vin

Explore the Unmatched Flavors of Classic European Beer, Travel Not Required

We import some of the world’s finest ales, lagers and ciders, all from family- and monastery-owned breweries.


History of Merchant du Vin

Specialty beer importer Merchant du Vin was founded in 1978, a time when Americans could not buy the world’s classic beer styles – in fact, unless they had traveled to Europe most Americans had never even heard of pale ale, hefeweizen, or Trappist ale. MdV founder Charles Finkel realized that the flavors found in the great beers of England, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands were a universal pleasure that should be available to all adults.


The goal of Merchant du Vin is to enhance people’s lives via the unmatched aromas and flavors found in great beer. Merchant du Vin’s selling proposition is to educate the consumer and arouse curiosity as to the differences among the classic beer styles, and to make these beers available for purchase at stores, restaurants, and bars. Merchant du Vin’s portfolio of beers comes from the nations with deep, rich brewing traditions: England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
