La Trappe beers
An authentic Trappist product must be brewed between the walls of a Trappist monastery, under the supervision of the monks. Part of the profits is donated to charity. The Koningshoeven La Trappe beers include Blond, Dubbel, Tripel, Quadrupel, Witte Trappist, Bockbier, Isid’or and PUUR. Each beer has its own specific qualities. You can enjoy these beers, brewed the old-fashioned way, in the gardens of the Trappist monastery.
