In 1850, a small group of monks from the Abbey of Westvleteren moved to Chimay and built SCOURMONT ABBEY. The land there was arid but the monks worked hard
to make it fertile and, by 1862,had set up a brewery.
In 1876, Brother Benoit went to France to learn everything there was to know about the art of making semi-hard cheese: the Chimay Trappist cheese was born!
The production plant was subsequently modernised, production increased and sales spiralled.
Bieres de Chimay and Chimay Fromages today employ 130 people and offer Trappist beers and cheeses, recognised worldwide for their high quality. The vast
majority of the profits are donated to social projects.
