The Saint Benedictus Abbey of Achel is the first monastery to take up brewing in Belgium since 1931, and is one of only seven Trappist breweries now operating. This dark amber, flavourful Rich ale, lots of dried fruit and Christmas cake aroma, soft and smooth on the tongue and a rich finish with hints of dark caramel beer is surprisingly refreshing at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining in the bottle.
Achel brewery is one of the smallest and youngest Trappist breweries in the world, but has one of the most fascinating histories. Beer was brewed on site as far back as 1648, but in 1914 the Germans occupied Belgium and the Abbey, stripping the copper vats to salvage the metal for the war effort. It was only in 1998 at the monks decided to start brewing again to raise money for the monastery.
