Collection: ST BERNARDUS

The history of St Bernardus can be traced to a group of exiled clerics from the Catsberg Abbey Community in France, forced to relocate over the border to Watou in the 19th century. They originally started producing cheese to enable them to continue abbey activities and in 1946 were asked by the nearby Abbaye de Sint Sixtus to produce their Westvleteren beer who no longer wanted to brew commercially. This beer was brewed with the abbey's original yeast strain and recipe until 1992, when the Sint Sixtus monks decided to resume brewing the beer within the monastery walls. 

St Bernardus continued brewing the Westvleteren 12 under the Abt 12 name, and has since developed a range of other abbey-inspired ales.
