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 30 June 2013).

Visited on the last day of the RBESG 2013. Had a short look at the storage rooms in which they keep their wooden barrels and afterwards we tasted some of the oak-aged expressions, which are delicious. Quite nice to sit outside in the sun and try this stuff in these picturesque surroundings.

Visited during RBESG 2013. My previous two monastery bars were not really worth the trip. La Trappe was a lovely one. Not too far from the center of Tilburg. Beautiful monastery is clearly visible. Really beautiful garden to sit in, lots of families & locals. Very fair prices. The usual La Trappe beers are available & the more recent BA Quad’s. There is also a store with the regular offerings & a lot of souvenirs. Nice place to have drink at. If you are near it, you should check it out.

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.

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.

Visited with Tinus the morning following ZZT. The tasting room was pretty busy with a crowd of mostly pensioners. Good selection of La Trappe beers available of course (though I couldn’t handle any on this morning), and the food seemed pretty decent.

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.

Very nice location with the old monastery right next to the tasting room. Very nice terrace to enjoy the La Trappe selection outside in the sun. Decorated tastefully with modern interpretation of the wood and brick history. Very respectful yet open for lots of tourists. Good waiters and prices are in line with your expectations. Nice visit. Didn’t try the food but that looked good too.
