Authentic La Trappe Beer Glass

This Trappist beer glass has the La Trappe logo on the front. This is a rare gold rimmed glass and comes directly from the Trappist abbey in Holland and supplies are very limited.

Features

  • Brewery: De Koningshoeven Brewery (Brouwerij de Koningshoeven)
  • Country of Origin: Berkel-Enschot, Holland
  • Beer Glass Type: Goblet
  • Size: .25 liter or 8 ounces
  • Dimensions: 6 inches high

About the Beer: Of the seven trappist breweries, Koningshoeven is the most commercialised. The brewery is currently operated by De Koningshoeven NV, a subsidiary of the Bavaria Brewery, but the buildings and equipment are owned by the abbey. The monks of the abbey are the ultimate authority on the brewing process. However, the secular company runs the business operations. The abbey also houses a bar and shop/museum, the latter of which is staffed by a monk.

At times, the brewery has allowed its spare capacity to be used for brewing of other beers. Wieckse Witte and Chimay have at one stage been brewed in the abbey. As with all other Trappist breweries, the brewery only exists in order to finance the monastery, not for profit or any other commercial reason.

Originally the brewery was called De Schaapskooi, and this name is still used casually especially around the region. The beers and the brewery are usually marketed under the name La Trappe. However, in some markets, such as the USA, the Koningshoeven name is used. It is the only producer of Trappist beer outside of Belgium, and produces four regular and two seasonal beers:

  • La Trappe Blond (6.5% ABV)
  • La Trappe Dubbel (7% ABV)
  • La Trappe Tripel (8% ABV)
  • La Trappe Quadrupel (10% ABV) (Seasonal)
  • La Trappe Witte Trappist (5.5% ABV)
  • La Trappe Bockbier (7% ABV) (Seasonal)

The Blond and the Enkel are the monk's table beer, but on certain holidays they may drink any of the varieties.

Apart from the La Trappe brand, the brewery produces Tilburg's Dutch Brown Ale mainly for export.

The water for the beer is drawn from five 200-metre deep wells on the abbey grounds, and all beers except the Blond are bottle conditioned. The spent grain remaining after the wort is filtered from the mash is used to feed the abbey's own herd of cows.

Nice Chalice
This is a very nice glass. There is a hexagon etched in the bottom of the glass that acts as a nucleation point to keep bubbles (head) on the beer. There are also nice details in the glass that you really can't appreciate in the picture. Very nicely packed and arrived within a week.

The wait was worth it
I wanted to order these awesome chalices a few months back, but they were out of stock here, and I couldn't find another site that either had them, or would ship them to the US. I chose to have TrueBeer notify me if the chalices came back in stock, assuming I'd never hear from them again...but to my surprise and delite, I received an ema just a week or two later. I place the order and the chalices were mine within the week! I was also extremely impressed with the care TrueBeer takes when shipping their glassware...they really do make sure you receive your items in one piece.

Yay!
We went to Holland this summer and actually visited the La Trappe Brewery. We fell in LOVE with the beer and the neat glasses they came in - but didn't want to buy them in case they broke in our luggage. After searching tons of websites, we finally found them! They arrived quickly and in perfect shape. Now I feel like I back in Holland every time I have a beer. Great buy!

Great Glass
My husband has gotten so that he cannot drink a beer unless it is served in the correct glass. He has recently become obsessed with Trappist Beers, so of course, he had to have the right glass! It's really pretty - and he's very happy!

La Trappe Glass
I've ordered from True beer twice. On both occasions the products were shipped promptly, extremely well wrapped and arrived in perfect condition. In one instance a product arrived with a slight manufacturers imperfection. True Beer quickly sent a replacement without cost to me. Would not hesitate to order again or recommend to a friend.

Love this glass!
I had first tried this beer when I was over in Italy. When I saw the glass was available for purchase I became very excited, quickly ordered the glass, and went out to hunt down if La Trappe was even available here in Michigan. Fortunately, it was! It brought me right back to Italy where I had Initially tried it in Venice at Il Santo Bevitore.... The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. I had a small mishap with receiving the glass - which ended up as a miscommunication from my apt complex, and the staff handled my problem very well. We were able to get the problem figured out and taken care of very fast, and effortlessly. Thank You.

Great beer glass
We are big Belgium beer drinkers, La Trappe dubbel being one of our favorites and when drinking a specific beer we now like their glasses, makes beer feel even more special and delicious.
