Up until now, there hasn’t been an alcohol-free Trappist beer, but this gap has now been filled, thanks to Brouwerij de Koningshoeven. La Trappe Trappist beers are brewed by Brouwerij de Koningshoeven in Holland and this year, the Trappist brewery is celebrating its 140th anniversary, which is a very impressive milestone. To mark this special occasion, the brewery has brewed a new alcohol-free beer called La Trappe Nillis. You might think – why is this alcohol-free beer important as there’s lots of non-alcoholic beers on the market? This is correct; however, La Trappe Nillis is the world’s first ever alcohol-free Trappist beer.
Not only is this a very good reason to try La Trappe Nillis but it has also come at a perfect time, especially if you’re participating in Dry January.
Unlike most non-alcoholic beers, La Trappe Nillis is a dark, amber-coloured beverage. It is malty with a caramel-sweet finish and lovely to drink in these colder months.
La Trappe Trappist beers have been brewed under the supervision of Trappist Monks since 1884. It was the first Trappist Monastery in The Netherlands. If you are following Tryanuary instead of Dry January and haven’t sampled the La Trappe Trappist beers, then we stock their range, and all are available by the bottle:
What exactly is a Trappist beer? A Trappist beer is brewed by Trappist Monks within the walls of a Trappist Monastery or within a monastic community. Trappist breweries adhere to strict guidelines to make sure the Trappist beers are authentic and of a high quality. Certain criteria must be met, as set by the International Trappist Association.
