Moines trappistes en guerre

Belgian monks from Saint Sixtus abbey were shocked when they discovered that the Dutch supermarket brand Jan Linders was selling their brew at very high price, without their permission or knowledge. A spokesman for the abbey said: “A price of nearly €10 per bottle goes against the ethical standards and values that the monks live by. Every beer lover knows that the Trappists of Westvleteren do not pursue profit maximisation.” Under the abbey’s rules, the beer can only be purchased on site in small quantities. The monks have taken legal action against the company.
