The Trappist Abbey of Scourmont is located in Chimay in the South of Belgium. The monks have been brewing beer there since 1862 and it is currently the largest Trappist brewery in Belgium (based on the beer production). Besides Chimay Red, the monks also brew the darker Chimay Blue, the blond Chimay Triple and in 2012 a unique beer called Chimay Speciale Cent Cinquante.
