Beer connoisseurs hold the top-fermented, bottle-conditioned brown ales from this brewery in the highest regard – they are peerless.


About the Rochefort Brewery

The Abbey of St-Remy, in the southern part of Belgium, was founded in 1230, and the monks began to brew beer sometime around 1595. The beautiful small brewery in the abbey, Rochefort Trappistes, is one of only eleven Trappist breweries in the world and makes full-bodied, deeply flavored dark ales. They are bottle-conditioned and among the world's most highly-respected beverages.

Only beers made in a Trappist Monastery, under the supervision of the monks, can use the Authentic Trappist Product seal. There are only eleven Trappist breweries in the world.

Rochefort Beers

"6" or Red Cap

Reddish-brown color, with amber-gold highlights; soft body leads to earthy flavors and an herbal character.

"8" or Green Cap

Brown color with red highlights. The flavor is deep, vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength.

"10" or Blue Cap

Actually builds from the depth of Rochefort 8 - the great strength is balanced by a complexity of flavors and firm malt backbone.
