The history of the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy dates back to 1230 and is filled with tragic events. Fires, plundering, epidemics. But again and again the silent monks have risen up and have rebuilt both the monastery and the associated brewery. Luckily. Because the three Trappist beers brewed there 6, 8 and 10 are among the best in the world in their style.
