Bières De Chimay

The monks of the Abbey of Scourmont at Chimay belong to the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, known generally as Trappists. These monks, who follow the Rule of Saint Benoit (going back to the 6th century) take the name of “Cistercians” from the monastery of Citeaux, founded in Burgundy in the 12th century. The monks, who have devoted their lives to God, make a living through their manual labour and are thus able to help the poorest of people. In the old days the monks were dedicated to working the fields, but in these modern times their work has developed to include small industries, mostly in the food and agricultural sectors.
