The story behind Trappist Beers
When I was in Belgium last fall, I was able to sample a number of Trappist Beers. There are only 11 monastery's in the world that have been given the privilege to produce and label there beers Trappist beers. Six of those monastery are in Belgium, one is here in US (Spencer Brewery in Massachusetts), two in Holland, one in Italy and one in Austria (according to Wiki and last year story done by CNN). While I was unable to visit any of the monasterys, I did enjoy the La Trappe Cafe in Brugge.
