Belgian Trappist Beer

Trappist is not a beer style but is used as a designation of origin. Trappist are the members of a monastic order, called the Cistercians, and there are strict criteria to obtain the "Authentic Trappist Product" logo:

  1. All products must be made within the immediate surroundings of the abbey;

  2. Production must be carried out under the supervision of the monks or nuns;

  3. Profits should be intended for the needs of the monastic community, for purposes of solidarity within the Trappist Order, or for development projects and charitable works.
