About Westmalle Trappist Brewery

The monastery - "Abdij der Trappisten van Westmalle" - is located in the village of West Malle, Province of Antwerp, Belgium, and was founded in 1794. The brewers take great pride in maintaining careful control over the brewing process - all hops are added by hand and no chemical additives of any kind are found in Westmalle ales: they are the flavor of nature, of tradition, and of dedication.

Brewing began soon after founding, and Westmalle Dubbel was first brewed for consumption within the Abbey around 1836; Westmalle Tripel was introduced in 1934. Both the Dubbel and the Tripel are considered by many tasters as the benchmarks for the style.

Westmalle is one of only eleven Trappist breweries in the world.
