Trappists

As of January 2019, fourteen Trappist breweries are active and members of ITA—six in Belgium, two in the Netherlands, and one each in Austria, Italy, England, France, Spain and the United States.[5]

This association has a legal standing, and its logo gives the consumer some information and guarantees about the product. Trappist breweries are constantly monitored to assure the irreproachable quality of their beers.

In addition to being a Trappist brewery, the monastic communities that are members of the ITA can apply for the Authentic Trappist Product (ATP) label. The following criteria are used for ATP label:

  • All products must be made within the immediate surroundings of the abbey;
  • Production must be carried out under the supervision of the monks or nuns;
  • Profits should be intended for the needs of the monastic community, for purposes of solidarity within the Trappist Order, or for development projects and charitable works.

There are currently fourteen breweries producing Trappist beer. Twelve of them (with the exception of Mont des Cats and Cardeña) are allowed to display the Authentic Trappist Product logo on their beer products.
