La Trappe is a lovely old monastery in an idyllic rural setting only 3.3km from the centre of Tilburg – a short journey by bus (once an hour), an easy journey by bicycle or a walk of perhaps 45 minutes. There’s a nice café, a garden with tables and a separate shop. We visited as part of the RBESG 2013 and were treated to a short guided tour which took in the barrel ageing vaults – quite a privilege as these are not normally shown to the public. We were also offered bottles of three different batches (11, 12, 13 and 14) and asked our opinion of the last one, which was aged in cognac barrels, as there were as yet no notes about it.
I’ve only ever been to one other Trappist monastery (Westvleteren) and felt as if I was in a motorway service station café but La Trappe is different – it’s really special and to be recommended.

Visited during RBESG 2013. Nice place with beautiful surroundings. The monestary and the big gardens really adds to the experience. We were also given a short tour in the rooms where the oak aged beer is stored. Great experience.

Great brewery tour. They have quite a few beer styles compared to other Trappist breweries e.g. wite beer. Also liked the restaurant and a friendly souvenir shop. Although it’s not my favorite Trappist beer a must visit if you are in the area.

I haven’t visited the brewery (yet), but did visit the ’proeflokaal’, which is the pub next to the abbey. Inside is an old brown cafe in dutch style. Outside is a beautiful scenery with a nice garden and in the background the abbey itself. Also, there is a small store, where they sell their own cheese.

Welcoming tasting room with impeccable service and great food. Got a quick tour in the brewery and was able to take away the available oak aged Quadrupels. Nice little shop. I’ll be back!

Visited the tasting room where all of the styles are present. One should have a designated driver, because now I could only have one beer. But it was supperb, these La Trappes are great. Service is perfect.

Stopped in here as the end of the beercycling tour. As it is a monastery, it is located on the grounds of a huge church. In spite of that, it seems to be a huge tourist attraction. We were here on a Sunday, and there was a huge amount of people. There was also a bit of a farmers market happening. I’m not sure if this is something that happens every sunday, but it was very cool. All the beers offered are La Trappe beers. We had a small tasting of four of their beers. Surprisingly, I like the beers better at home than at the source. Along with their restaurant, there is also a shop on the grounds that you could buy bottles, and other La Trappe related merchandise.

Good way of trying every La Trappe beer in one afternoon.
Not that great atmosphere or service.
Beer tour in and around the brewery is really interesting.

Great shop with all kinds of stuff from La Trappe, also abbey food, snacks and other stuff. I had some questions about some beers and the lady behind the counter got a hold of one of the monks and he answered my questions.
Service is super and they are super friendly.
Tasting room is next to the brewery, abbey and shop and looks very clean and neat. Nice interior, tasty brews and friendly staff. Very nice and beautiful surroundings. Located in beautiful surroundings and close to the highway, you can get there easily. I am proud to have such Trappist abbey in the Netherlands!

After leaving Texas during the hottest summer on record and finding cool and rain, how could I not love the place? The gift shop was a little cheesy (including actual cheese for sale) but the cafe/tasting room was rather nice and the abbey is an additional plus. Also was fortunate enough to try some samples of BA beers. (didn’t really care for them, but they were in an experimental stage and thought it was cool that Ludwig the brewer mentioned having a discussion with Vinnie Cilurzo on the matter)
