de Koningshoeven Trappist Brewery

De Koningshoeven Brewery (Brouwerij de Koningshoeven) is a Dutch Trappist brewery founded in 1884 within the walls of the abbey Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven in Berkel-Enschot, the Netherlands.

'La Trappe', the name of the beer brewed in Koningshoeven, was the first Trappist beer in The Netherlands. Only beer brewed in a Trappist monastery under the supervision and responsibility of the monks may be called 'Trappist beer'. La Trappe is brewed according to traditional methods, from a recipe developed by the Trappist monks of Koningshoeven, using only natural ingredients and water drawn from its own well in the beer. The beer top fermented and bottle conditioned, which allows the fermentation process to continue in the bottle giving La Trappe a unique aroma.

The Brewery De Koningshoeven markets five special beers under the brand name La Trappe. In USA and Canada 'La Trappe' is marketed as 'Koningshoeven Trappist Ale'.
