The Trappist Brewing Heritage

Brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery, either by the monks themselves or under their supervision, is just one tenet governing which beers can bear the Trappist name. 

Just eight Trappist abbeys brew beer Orval, Chimay, Westvleteren, Rochefort, Westmalle, Achel, Koningshoeven and, more recently, Engelszell.
