Westvleteren the best beer in the world served here

Have a look at our Imported Bottle menu. We Serve Westvleteren at a price exclusive to our patrons

The brewery’s three beers have acquired an international reputation for taste and quality, Westvleteren 12 being considered by some to be the best beer in the world. The beers are not brewed to normal commercial demands but are sold in small quantities weekly from the doors of the monastery itself to individual buyers on an advance-order basis.

As with all other Trappist breweries, the beer is only sold to financially support the monastery and other philanthropic causes. While the brewery is a business by definition (its purpose is to make money), it does not exist for pure profit motives, and they do no advertising. The monks have repeatedly stated that they only brew enough beer to run the monastery, and will make no more than they need to sell, regardless of demand.
