Discover the new Westmalle Extra glass!

Because the Westmalle Extra, with its lower alcohol content, deserves its own glass, we are introducing a specially designed one. Not a traditional chalice glass, but a modern conical design inspired by the original glasses from the 1920s and 1930s. For all details and to order the glass, read on!

Step into our brewery

Our brewery is very modern, yet completely adapted to the traditional brewing process. At Westmalle, we aim to achieve a balance between innovation and tradition. We use the latest techniques but still want to see, test and taste everything for ourselves.

The brewery is located within the walls of the Trappist abbey. The monks set policy and oversee its implementation. They use the income to live on and to reinvest in the brewery. Surplus profits are shared with other Cistercian abbeys and donated to charitable causes.

Vorige week was het zover: de lancering van ons nieuwe Extraglas!

Ook onze collega’s van de brouwerij konden niet wachten om te proosten op dit speciale moment. Het nieuwe Extraglas zorgt voor de perfecte drinkervaring en de Extra smaakt er zelfs éxtra lekker in!  Maar dat is natuurlijk onze mening 😉

Benieuwd waarom we zo enthousiast zijn? Pak zelf ook een Extraglas en ervaar het verschil. Je vindt het glas in onze webshop.

Klink met ons mee en vier dit unieke moment samen met ons!
