Chimay - Red


The Chimay Red is the oldest of the Chimays and the first beer brewed by the Trappist fathers of the Notre-Dame de Scourmont Abbey at Chimay back in 1862. Its beautiful copper colour and sweet, fruity taste make it a particularly tasty dark ale. With a silky mouthfeel, sweet fruit aroma and a pleasant bitter hop finish this is a true icon of its style.

  • Style

    TRAPPIST beer is a beer brewed by Trappist breweries and they are mostly top-fermented and bottle conditioned. To be judged as a true Trappist beer, it must be produced within the walls of the abbey, by or under the supervision of monks, and the profit must go towards the upkeep of the abbey or charitable causes in the local area. In general, the beers are known as EnkelDubbel and Tripel depending on their strength, and these terms roughly describe both the amount of malt and the original gravity.

  • Brewery

    BRASSERIE DE CHIMAY was founded in 1862 in Chimay, southern Hainaut, Belgium, specifically within Scourmont Abbey, a Trappist monastery, making Chimay one of eleven breweries worldwide that produce Trappist beer. A truly iconic brewery, alongside its globally revered Chimay Rouge, Chimay Bleue, and Chimay Blanche, it also crafts one patersbier; a beer intended for the monks. As with all other Trappist breweries, the beer is sold only for financial support of the monastery and good causes.
