Every self-respecting reader of this site will know that the Trappist monks of 7 abbeys make trappist ale. But did you know that the Trappist monks also make other stuff?
Yeaah..cheese, you will say. And of course that’s true. But they also produce candy, greeting cards, fresh bread or even truffls with beer.
