A Tribute straight from the heart.
The story of Trappist® Tribute starts with a world tour. An adventure. Two close friends, Kenny and Koen, travel from abbey to abbey and knock on their doors, the trappist monks welcome them with open arms.
They get to know the monks and nuns better with each visit. They have deep conversations and are increasingly impressed by the authentic way of life and inspiring wisdom of the Trappists.
Did you even know there are more than 150 active Trappist abbeys around the world?
The trust and interest is mutual. Kenny and Koen have started a project that matches the honest philosophy of the monks. They receive public support for Trappist® Tribute from the Trappist abbeys and the International Trappist Association (IVT). Unique.
They want to share that experience. Through the products that the monks produce and with which they support themselves and support charities. And by telling the story that is connected with the order, the abbeys, the beers, meat and cheeses, wines and liqueurs, ... Because Trappist is so much more than beer.
Treat yourself, a family member, friend or business associate with a new story to taste and share.
The Trappist® Tribute Box is a unique box – a box full of amazing products and history.

2 young passionate guests who run a Trappist cafe very well. Original and nice decor, little brown cafe from the past and all the Trappists of the whole world on the map. Some special ones also on draught ... very exceptional you think. Definitely keep doing it. You can also eat very tasty cheese and meat plates ... everything from Trappist monasteries.

Brilliant business with a fantastic concept! This business is run by two passionate young guests. A delicious collection of Trappist beers, known and (for me) unknown! You can also enjoy an assortment of cheese and other products. There is a cozy atmosphere in the bar and it is beautifully decorated with beautiful decorations!

The Trappist monks brew to live, and not the other way around. They do this with so much respect for tradition, people, society and the environment ... we can all really take an example from that way of doing business.
We lived with the monks in their community and had a taste of the life within the walls. Honestly, I couldn't do it myself. But I greatly admire it and understand why they make that choice.
You would think that the monks live in the past. 'Nothing is less true'. They are constantly innovating while staying true to their roots. The sales are growing, which in turn benefit their many charity works.
The monks don't push their products to the market. Nevertheless, their beers are wanted everywhere around the world. But also because it is so different from everything else. Many companies can learn from the way monks do business.
