Trappist Breweries

Trappist beer is brewed by Trappist monks. Thirteen Trappist monasteries—six in Belgium, two in the Netherlands, and one each in Austria, Italy, England, France, and Spain—currently produce beer,[ but the Authentic Trappist Product label is assigned by the International Trappist Association (ITA) to just ten breweries which meet their strict criteria. Though I have enjoyed all these beers, I still have more than half to visit.

    I was fortunate to have this beer on many occasion and found it delightful. Found multiple cases of bombers for $2.00 a bomber when it first hit the marker due to some distribution changes.
