Authentic Trappist beers

Authentic Trappist beers

Chimay is an authentic Trappist beer. That means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery under the control and responsibility of the community of monks, and whose revenue is devoted to social service.

It guarantees the origin of the beer according to well-established principles.

The Trappist Brewing Heritage

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.
