Westvleteren 12 (XII) - The legendary, close to mythical Trappist from the Sint-Sixtus Abbey of Westvleteren. Global winner of a wide range of titles, prizes and medals, acclaimed by many, desired by the masses.
Their first title of Best Beer In The World, awarded in 2005 by ratebeer.com, triggered and fueled a hype as never witnessed before in the entire history of beer. The street where the abbey is situated could not handle the traffic and was made one-way shortly after winning the Best Beer award.
The fame of Westvleteren 12 (Abtsbier),has (had) an undeniable and recurring effect on the popularity of Belgian Trappist - and specialty beers worldwide. To us, this is the true added value of the beer.
Westvleteren 12 is more than just the Sint-Sixtus monks life-supporting flagship…it can truly be called a Belgian national beer treasure.
