Achel No Longer a Trappist Beer

In order for a beer to claim itself as Trappist, the ITA requires the beer to be brewed in the confines of a monastery, under the direction of the monks, and the production is limited to the costs of monastic preservation, including their pastoral work and providing sustenance for the monks. After the last monks left Achel Abbey in Belgium earlier this year, the beers produced at Achel Brewery no longer bear the Trappist label.
