Trappist beers are beers made in Trappist monasteries. Traditionally these are from Belgium and the surrounding areas of Continental Europe, however there is now one in New York and one in the United Kingdom as well. To be certified an authentic Trappist product the beers must meet the following conditions:
All products must be made within the immediate surroundings of the abbey;
Production must be carried out under the supervision of the monks or nuns;
Profits should be intended for the needs of the monastic community, for purposes of solidarity within the Trappist Order, or for development projects and charitable works.
Trappist beers will carry the hexagonal "Authentic Trappist Product" trademark on their labels.
