Named after brother Isidorus
Brother Isidorus Laaber was the first brew master of the Onze Lieve Vrouw of Koningshoeven Abbey. In 1884, he began brewing Trappist beer, laying the foundation for the beer that we brew to this day. A wise decision for which many beer lovers are grateful to him. That makes brother Isidorus the founding father of La Trappe. In 2009, on occasion of the 125th anniversary of the Trappist brewery, brother Isidorus was honoured with his own beer: La Trappe Isid’or. The beer was received so well that it has been included in our standard collection.
