The Netherlands: La Trappe Trappist Ale
Brewed in the idyllic Dutch countryside since 1884, Koningshoeven is one of only a few authentic
Trappist breweries outside of Belgium.
Business at Koningshoeven is guided by Father Abbott
Bernardus, who oversees every aspect of the day-to-day operations. Bernardus' is the final
word on packaging, recipes, and image, and his daily involvement ensures that the entire
brewing staff remain mindful of the special place in which they work.
Being Dutch, you will find the beers of Koningshoeven to be crisp and clean tasting, two
hallmarks of beer from Holland. Malt, hops and yeast reveal themselves clearly and well, making
for a satisfying, "more-ish" ale that is drinkable and complex, uncompromised yet
approachable, flavorful and balanced. All are bottle-conditioned for maximum flavor.
