Le Trappe Isid'or Trappist....$9.99 / 750ml
"Koningshoeven/La Trappe is one of only seven Trappist breweries in the world allowed to carry the logo "Authentic Trappist Product". This logo guarantees authenticity, recipe and tradition. Koningshoeven/La Trappe is the only Trappist Ale that is made in The Netherlands, the other six Trappist breweries are situated in Belgium. In the USA and Canada the La Trappe Trappist Ales are marketed under the name Koningshoeven Trappist Ale." - importer "In 2009, it has been 125 years since friar Isidorus Laaber hesitantly, with successes and setbacks, started what is now a stunning product. To commemorate this fact, we are releasing a special-occasion beer for the international market in this jubilee year. It is obvious that the beer will carry the name of our first brewing master. It is a homage to this simple friar with his golden hands, who made our brewery, and thus also our monastery, famous.
As always, part of the profits of La Trappe will go to the monasteries in Indonesia and Uganda, which were set up by Koningshoeven. The profit of La Trappe Isid’or will go entirely to the co-friars in Uganda. Since they fled the violence in Kenya in 2008, they have had to start from scratch in Uganda. With the profit of La Trappe Isid’or, the community there will be able to build a new monastery and find a new source of income." -- brewery
