the Chimay Grande Réserve,
with its powerful
and complex aromas
Chimay Grande Réserve is an authentic trappist product
This means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery, under the control and responsibility of the community of monks, who are involved through the process of making and marketing the beer.
Most of the income generated by this activity is devoted to the needs of the community and social works.
Our different formats
The Chimay Blue also exists in bottle of 33cl, 75cl, 150cl and 300cl.
In some bars and restaurants it is also available on tap
