La Trappe Brewery

Top choice brewery in Tilburg

Brewed in the leafy surroundings of Koeningshoeven Monastery on the outskirts of Tilburg, La Trappe was, until 2012, the world's only non-Belgian Trappist beer. The monastery's proeflokaal (tasting room) is a modern, neo-traditional thatch-sided cafe offering excellent lunches as well as nine varieties to try. For a boisterously humorous 90-minute brewery tour (in English, €12) it's worth booking ahead online.

The oak-aged quadruple costs €15.50 but is cheaper to takeaway from the monastery's Kloosterwinkel shop, as are all the other brews.
