Brouwerij de Sint-Sixtusabdij van Westvleteren


"Brewery of the Monks"

Set amid a rustic field in West Vleteren, the Abbey of Saint Sixtus was founded in 1831 by Jan-Baptist Victoor. The abbey is served by an order of monks who have famously been brewing some of the best Trappist beers in the region since 1839, mostly to sustain their own lives. Prepared carefully with a meticulous production technique, the brewery makes use of five organic materials to brew specialty beer with a distinctive taste and aroma. The Westvleteren beer is usually not available in supermarkets or restaurants; it is only available in a crate of 24 bottles or sold as a pack of six at the nearby In de Vrede beer garden. The abbey and brewery are not open to visitors, although those interested can visit the information kiosk just opposite the brewery where monks offer an insight into their religious life.
