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 monks' 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.

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.

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.

The best!
After being fortunate enough to try La Trappe at my local WerstKüche Restaurant, I knew I needed to grab these frat-tastic chalices. Now I get to walk around the party like a true Boss. Best purchase of the year, yo.

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.

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!
