Westmalle: Next Stop on our Trappist Brewery Expedition
During our Trappist brewery adventure we went to Abdij van de Trappisten van Westmalle, which houses the brewery. Although you can't tour the abbey or brewery you can visit the grounds of the abbey on foot or bike.
To sample Westmalle beers head to the Café Trappisten across the street. We tasted all of the beers and decided that the Dubbel is our favorite. This little café is also where we enjoyed our first Belgian waffle of our trip.
There are few places to stay in Westmalle so we used Antwerpen as our home base. If you choose to do the same make sure you visit Kulminator, a bar that specializes in rare, cellared beers.
