Chimay has been brewed by the Cistercian monks
of the Abbaye de Chimay since 1862 according to
traditional monastic brewing methods, a tradition which
continues to this day.
In 1954 the Monastic community created a Christmas beer,
Chimay Bleue, and in 1966 Chimay Triple was born, bearing
a white cap. Finally in 1982, the Abbey created Chimay Grande
Like the brewery, these recipes have stood the test of time,
to become classic beers.
