Come taste at La Trappe Trappist

The Tasting room owes its name to the old building in which the monks tested La Trappe Trappist ales for aroma, flavour, clarity and quality. We always try to prepare as many recipes as possible with carefully selected products from the Campine of Brabant. And when possible, we use organic products.
Note: No reservations can be made for the Tasting room.

Unique collaborations

The unique collaboration with the monks is what makes our Tasting room so special. We purchase their products, such as Trappist bread, cookies, chocolates, cheese and honey.

We also work closely with farmers and businesses in the immediate surrounding. In addition, people from the Prins Heerlijk and the Diamant group, who have learning difficulties and/or mental disabilities, work for us. Here, they learn to work in the catering business, the household or the monastery shop.
