Westmalle trappistenbier Extra, Tripel en Dubbel in café

Step into our brewery

Our brewery is very modern, yet completely adapted to the traditional brewing process. At Westmalle, we aim to achieve a balance between innovation and tradition. We use the latest techniques but still want to see, test and taste everything for ourselves.

The brewery is located within the walls of the Trappist abbey. The monks set policy and oversee its implementation. They use the income to live on and to reinvest in the brewery. Surplus profits are shared with other Cistercian abbeys and donated to charitable causes.

In Westmalle omarmen we het ritme van de abdij. Vanaf 4 uur 's ochtends, bij de start van het ochtendgebed van de broeders, wordt het brouwproces ingezet. Er wordt met toewijding gebrouwen tot 19 uur 's avonds, een uurtje voor de nachtelijke rust van de broeders begint.

Deze aanpak weerspiegelt de filosofie van de abdij, waarbij de brouwerijactiviteiten altijd harmoniëren met het abdijleven.
