Italian Monastery Brewery Receives Trappist Designation
The International Trappist Association has granted Rome’s Tre Fontane Abbey the right to use the Authentic Trappist Product trademark on its beer, making it the 11th Trappist brewery in the world. The brewery’s first designated Trappist beer is an 8.5% tripel brewed with eucalyptus called Three Fountains Tripel. It is sold only at the Tre Fontane monastery store and a select few Rome restaurants. The monks also produce and sell olive oil, honey, chocolates and liqueurs.
