Beers have been brewed at the Cistercian Abbey of Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven since 1884. The only Trappist brewery outside of Belgium (where there are six), Koningshoeven is also the only brewery to have been dropped from the Trappist association, due to its relationship with a commercial brewery. The issue was resolved, and the brewery re-admitted, in 2005 by the monks taking a more active role.
