Does anyone know the name of the Monastery in Germany, near Wildfleken that brews beer? I visitied the place in summer 1992 and was trying to remember the name. It has some of the best beer I have ever had.

Do you know if it is available outside of the Monastery?

Answers:
There are 7 Trappist Monestaries that commercially produce beer, 6 of which are in Belgium.

See if any of these names ring a bell:

Chimay
Route de Charlemagne 8
Baileux (Chimay), 6464
Belgium

Konigshoeven
Tilburg, Holland.

Orval
Abbaye de Notre-Dame d'Orval
Villers-devant-Orval, 6823
Belgium
http://www.orval.be/

Rochefort
Rue de l'Abbaye 8
Rochefort, 5580
Belgium

Achel
Hamont-Achel, 3930
Belgium

Westmalle
Antwerpsesteenweg 496
Malle, 2390
Belgium

Westvleteren
Donkerstraat 12
Westvleteren, 8640
Belgium

All of these are commercially available, but comparatively expensive.
Chimay and Orval are probably the easiest to find, and I think both around the same price. I have seen them in my area PA (US) for $65 (sale price) to up over $100 per case.

Hope that helps.

Cheers.

Hmmmm.the only german beer I know of which is supposedly brewed in a franciscan monastery is "Franzikaner wiesbier" and I think you can get that all over the world.
I think this may be the one but my German is very rusty.here's the website link:

I've been to Andechs Monastery and had their beer. It's awesome. It's near Munich (within an hour or so).
Although I am unsure as to which monistary you are referring too, often times the brewing techniques are much more traditional than macrobreweries which allow for widespread distribution.

Therefore, more likely than not it isn't available outside that region of Germany.
It is common for many monasteries in that part of the world to brew beer. I remember my cousin was in a monastery in Arkansas for a while & they brewed theri own beer.
