Authentic Abbey Ales
Maredsous is the authentic beer of the Benedictine monks of the abbey of Maredsous in Belgium. The abbey is located in the Belgian Ardennes, south of the City of Namur, in the Province of Namur, next to a picturesque village called Denée.
At the abbey of Maredsous, 33 monks live, pray and work according the Rule of St Benedict, a tradition that goes back to the 6th century. Dedication and hospitality are the most important values at the abbey of Maredsous.
The library, containing over 400,000 titles, some over 1000 years old and the visitor’s centre St-Joseph embody these Benedictine values that contribute undisputedly to the authentic taste of the Maredsous abbey beers.
The Maredsous Abbey beers are still brewed, based on the original Benedictine monks’ recipe and production is under close supervision of the Abbey’s community, represented by the Abbot, Bernard Lorent. An important part of the profit generated by the Maredsous beers, is used for charitable causes.
