Rae Tilley's Picks
This Chimay has been going strong since it was first introduced in 1966 – relatively young for this Trappist brewery, given that they’ve been producing beer since 1862! The Chimay brewery is one of a handful that exist in a Trappist abbey, where the brewing is performed by, or under the supervision of Cistercian monks.
This Belgian tripel is what I’ll be reaching for on warm patio days ahead. It is a stronger beer at 8% ABV, but drinks refreshingly dry – hops, citrus notes, and high carbonation come together beautifully. All I’d need to complement the Chimay white is a hot dog loaded with spicy mustard and sauerkraut – the perfect beer garden pairing!View Product
