Westmalle - Still brewed by the monks!

Westmalle - Still brewed by the monks!

On our brewery tour today we learnt that though 100 year ago Bruges had 50 breweries (for a population of 25000) today it has Zero :-( The Henry Maes / Halfmoon brewery was the last. Out of the hundred other breweries in Belgium only 5 are still brewed by Trappist monks in abbies - Westmalle being one of them
