The Achelse Kluis was a recent addition to the Trappist offering. Although there has been an Monastery since the 12th Century, it is only recently that the Abbey has revived the brewery and started brewing again. The Achelse Kluis was a recent addition to the Trappist offering.

A pale, strong, fruity, hoppy Trappist ale from Belgium's newest Abbey brewery. Achel 8° is hard to find even in Belgium.

The Saint Benedictus Abbey of Achel is the first monastery to take up brewing in Belgium since 1931, and is one of only six Trappist breweries now operating there. In fact, the Abbey is located partly in Holland and partly in Belgium, but the brewery is in Belgium.  The new Achel 8° is only available in the bottle.

This blond, flavourful beer is a surprisingly refreshing brew at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining in the bottle.

Brewery: Achel (Abdij Achelse Kluis)

Country: Belgian Beer

Styles: Blonde Beer

ABV%: 8%

Achel Brewery is one of the smallest and youngest Trappist breweries in the world, but has one of the most fascinating histories. Beer was brewed on site as far back as 1648, but in 1914 the Germans occupied Belgium and the Abbey, stripping the copper vats to salvage the metal for the war effort. It was only in 1998 at the monks decided to start brewing again to raise money for the monastery.

The monks of Westmalle Rochefort helped them build the brewery, and they released their first beer, a strong maber called Achel 8 in 2001. The beers are still brewed by the monks at the Abbey, with profits going to charitable causes.
