Day #4 - Visit Trappist Monasteries

One cannot have a “beercation” in Belgium without visiting a Trappist Abbey! As Trappist monks have their own style, so do their beers.  Our first visit will be to Chimay.   Chimay is actually a town and the Abbey of Scourmont is the name of the place where the beer is made. We will see the gardens, the church, and places of worship, all bathed in natural light amidst the silence. 

The wonderful store/restaurant outlet across the road will make you thirsty and hungry.

Our second visit will be to Rochefort.  It is quite different from Chimay. This Abbey is much smaller, (beer production is 1/20 of Chimay) and its public philosophy is very different... as you will find out when you come to visit.
