TRAPPIST ALES

Basically the same as Abbey Ales, but not quite. Only six Belgian Trappist monasteries still brew and market their own beer and, by Belgian law, they are the only breweries allowed to call their Ales Trappist Ales. (FYI, they are Achel, Chimay, Orval, Rochefort, Westmalle and Westvleteren.)

Think that’s clear? Well, there is one other Trappist monastery brewing beer that doesn’t fall under the evil eye of Belgian law. It’s Tilburg brewery in The Netherlands
