Difference between an abbey that make beer from regular monks as to a trappist abbey

Abbey beers ("Bières d'Abbaye" or "Abdijbier") are made by commercial breweries, who take advantage of the positive associations of the Trappist breweries by imitating the styles and names of Trappist beers, and either brew under license from an existing abbey, or brand their beers with the name of an abbey ruin or some other religious connection, such as a local saint.
Abbey beers mainly came into being following World War II when Trappist beers experienced a new popularity. The Abbey beers were developed to take advantage of the public's interest in the Trappist beers. This is why the single key component of an Abbey beer is its name: there is always the name of a monastery (either real or fictious). Like the Trappist beers, Abbey beers do not connote a beer style, but rather a general type of beer.

Trappist beer
A Trappist beer is a beer brewed by or under control of Trappist monks. Of the world's 171 Trappist monasteries (as of April 2005), seven produce beer (six in Belgium and one in the Netherlands). Only these seven breweries are authorized to label their beers with the Authentic Trappist Product logo.

The Trappists, like many other religious people, originally brewed beer as to feed the community, in a perspective of self-sufficiency. Among the monastic breweries, the Trappists were certainly the most active brewers: in the last 300 years, there were at least nine Trappist breweries in France, six in Belgium, two in the Netherlands, one in Germany, one in Austria, one in Bosnia and possibly other countries.

International Trappist Association
For the beers, these criteria are the following:

  • The beer must be brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey, by or under control of Trappist monks.
  • The brewery, the choices of brewing, and the commercial orientations must obviously depend on the monastic community.
  • The economic purpose of the brewery must be directed toward assistance and not toward financial profit.
  • This association has a legal standing, and its logo gives to the consumer some information and guarantees about the produce.
There are currently seven breweries that are allowed to have their products display the Authentic Trappist Product logo.
