Brasserie Rochefort

Beer-brewing monks were not uncommon in the Middle Ages and even today you can find monasteries in which monks are actually still brewing. Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy Abbey is such a monastery that has been producing the most delicious beer for more than 400 years. And not just during Lent.

Tradition and quality

The brewery of the Trappist Abbey Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy in Rochefort is located in the south of Belgium. The location of the monastery is ideal for brewing beer, as there is a source of excellent quality in the immediate vicinity. The water for brewing is obtained directly from the source of the Tridaine and processed further without chemical or physical treatment. This gentle handling ensures an incomparable natural freshness. In addition to the special water, a special yeast is used that has mutated over the centuries of brewing and gives the beer an extraordinary taste. The Trappists have cultivated the craft of brewing since the Middle Ages and work according to traditional recipes and guidelines. You can taste this wealth of experience: Beers like the Trappistes Rochefort 6 or Trappistes Rochefort 8 impress with a rich palette of flavors, a wonderfully strong color and a dimensionally stable, fine-pored foam.

Everyday life in the monastery

The work of a monk is divided into two areas. The highest priority is the spiritual work and the cultivation of the relationship with God. But the world in which you find yourself must not be forgotten: The Cistercian monks, above all the Trappists, keep the tradition of the handicraft very high. In addition to their charitable work with social and cultural institutions in the area, the monks of the Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy Abbey were active in agriculture until 1960. After the abandonment of agriculture, all labor now flows into beer brewing. The Trappists are proud of their centuries-old craft and the tradition that is still brewed. To protect and unequivocally identify the products, there is a seal that is awarded according to strict specifications and may only be used by seven abbeys in Belgium and the Netherlands.
