Chimay is an authentic Trappist beer:
this means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery, under the control and responsibility of the community of monks, who are involved through the process of making and marketing the beer. Most of the income generated by this activity is devoted to the needs of the community and social works.
“Authentic Trappist Product” logo on the Chimay beer labels certifies stringent observance of these criteria.
Chimay beers are among the rare types recognized as authentic Trappist products. Brewed for many years, these beers take their personality from their unique yeast and the purity of the Abbey well water.
