Among the most forwardthinking of all the monasteries that brew beer, Koningshoeven Abbey has poured much time and effort into minimising the environmental impact of the beers whilst maintaining their quality. A product of this attitude, La Trappe Blond is a Single style ale which follows the recipe of the beers which are drunk by the monks in their own refectory during meals. The list of awards that this beer has won is extensive but includes multiple Golds in the Dutch Beer Challenge, Gold in the European Beer Star and Gold in the Brussels Beer Challenge, illustrating its towering reputation in one of the most discerning beer markets on Earth. Serving temperature 7°-10°C.
We recommend pairing with light fish dishes, veal fillet, young soft cheeses and cake.
The Trappist monks of the Abbey of our Lady of Koningshoeven live in one of the most picturesque of all of the Trappist monasteries. La Trappe’s motto, “Taste The Silence”, tells you everything you need to know of the monastic atmosphere. After their establishment in 1881, the first two beers the monks brewed came three years later; the proceeds of these early brewing experiments were used to build the famous neo-Gothic abbey. After decades of financial difficulties, the brewery started to thrive in the post-war years, after turning towards more sophisticated commercialisation. It was during this period that the La Trappe branding was developed in honour of the famous La Trappe monastery in Normandy. Today, the abbey uses the proceeds of its beers to support abbeys in Indonesia, Kenya and Uganda, alongside other charitable endeavours. Social responsibility and environmental sustainability has always been at the forefront of the abbey’s projects.
