The history of...Brouwerij Westmalle
Westmalle beers are brewed by a Trappist brewery in the Westmalle Abbey in Belgium. The Abbey is officially called the Abbey of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and was founded in 1794.
It is one of the few breweries permitted to brew Trappist beers and certified by the International Trappist Association. Westmalle has earned its stripes as a pioneer of new beer styles. Westmalle was the inventor of Dubbel beers, so it’s safe to say that the Westmalle Dubbel was the first of its kind. Whether its the best is up to you to decide.
