Of all the beers in the world, only 12 are allowed to be a called an “Authentic Trappist Product”.
The name comes from the French abbey of “La Grande Trappe” where the religious Order of Trappists or Cistercians was founded.
Since the trademark is protected, a beer can only be associated with the International Trappist Association logo and therefore be labelled as “Trappist” if it meets these three criteria:
- The beer must be brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey
- The brewery is directly linked to the monastery and the beer is brewed by the monks or under their supervision
- The brewery may not seek profits. All profits are intended for the needs of the monks, the maintenance of the abbey and its surroundings. The rest is donated to charitable works, social projects and people in need.
