Bierbrouwerij de Koningshoeven - La Trappe Trappist
French Trappist monks found refuge in Berkel-Enschot in the province of Brabant but needed a source of income to support themselves and fulfil their charity duties. That is why they decided to brew beer. La Trappe Trappist ale has been brewed by the Koningshoeven brewery at the Cistercian abbey of Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven since 1884. Koningshoeven brewery is one of the few Trappist breweries in the world that may use the ‘Authentic Trappist Product’ logo. The best guarantee of authenticity, recipe, tradition, and quality. To this very day, beer is brewed according to the rules of the Trappist within the walls of this abbey.
