We can tell you about it, but you actually have to experience it yourself; the abbey and brewery of La Trappe have a rich history and are characterised by a great beauty. Since 1884, we have brewed our beer within the walls of the abbey and still do so under the supervision of the monks who fill their days with work and prayer. In peace and quiet and with a lot of dedication. This guarantees the authenticity and high quality of our beers. The monks happen to be the owners of the recipe and the La Trappe Trappist brand. Those with a good sense of taste will be able to discern the most important ingredient that is inextricably linked to the monks; the silence.
