Chimay Red is a splendid amber beer brewed by the Cistercian monks from the Abbey of Scourmont. This trappist beeris brewed within the walls of the abbey. To give a fine anecdote, know that this is the oldest Chimay since the recipe has been made by the Father Theodore during WWII. The result is incredible.
Chimay is the definition of a Heritage Brand. One cannot reach world-wide acclaim merely by being old. It has to achieve greatness by being truly committed to the same principles over the course of many generations. An official Trappist brewery and a dairy, production of beer and cheese has been overseen by the monks of The Scourmont Abbey for over a century and nearly 90% of the profits go to charity. In a market full of endless product offerings of variable quality, Chimay offers five brands executed to perfection.
