At the end of the 19th century, a small group of Trappist monks fled from France to Berkel-Enschot. There, in the heart of Brabant, they found a piece of heather with some hooves and a sheepfold. They embraced this former country residence of King Willem II – the Koningshoeven – as their new home. They founded their monastery there and decided to brew ale. To this day they fill their lives here with prayer and work. In peace and quiet.
De Koningshoeven became the cradle of La Trappe Trappist. There, within the abbey walls, Brewery de Koningshoeven produces Dutch Trappist ale. Still under the supervision and responsibility of the monks and still based on the inner conviction “to do good”: part of the proceeds go to charities. These original principles provide La Trappe Trappist with the exclusive label “Authentic Trappist Product” from the International Trappist Association.
La Trappe Trappist is pure, honest, Dutch ale. If you taste good, you will discover what it is to enjoy. And discovers the most important ingredient that is inextricably linked to the monks: silence. (Copy from La Trappe – ‘About La Trappe’)
