It’s a safe generalization to say cyclists love a good beer. Few things beat the rewarding sensation that comes with a well-crafted pint of suds after spending hours hammering it out on the saddle. Recently Rapha did a tour of Belgium stopping off at some of the finest Trappist breweries around. Watch the video above to learn more.
There are only 11 Trappist breweries in the world, and although many breweries find inspiration from the monk-crafted Trappist beer, strict criteria govern the right to brew and sell authentic Trappist products.
