Trappist monks from France found a refuge in the province of Barbant (Netherlands) in the form of a sheep pen, a heather and a homestead. As a result, the Trappist monastery Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven was founded in 1881, whereupon the Trappist brewery was launched three years later.
Since the Trappists needed a source of income in order to be independent and to be able to fulfill their obligation to charity, they decided to brew beer.
In order to be able to build a new abbey, they then built a new brewery. Due to the great demand, they launched the La Trappe brand in 1980.
“A monk treats the gifts that God has given us well out of inner conviction, and not because it is a trend.” That is why it is important for the monks to stand up for people and nature for centuries, which is why you are also get involved in a very poor region in Uganda.
