Practise What You Preach (ABV 10%) is the result of a special collaboration between La Trappe and BrewDog, inspired by a shared ambition to show that great beer can be great for the planet.

A Quadrupel brewed at La Trappe with Scottish heather honey and American HBC 692 hops, it's a ruby-hued liquid that boasts aromas of rich dried fruits and sweet honey. Hints of citrus fruits run subtly throughout, cutting through the sticky mouthfeel to balance out the sweetness.

A proportion of the breweries' profits from sales of this beer will be donated to the Dutch charity Made Blue, which works to provide access to clean drinking water in developing countries. 25.4 oz (corked) bottle.

Koningshoeven Abbey: Tilburg, The Netherlands

For more than a century, the towers of the Trappist Abbey of Our Lady of Koningshoeven have formed a significant element in the landscape east of Tilburg in The Netherlands. In 1880, when antichurch legislation threatened the existence of French monasteries, Dom Dominicus Lacaes, abbot of the Trappist monastery Sainte-Marie-du-Mont on Mont-des-Cats in northern France, became concerned about the fate of his monks. The Netherlands offered a refuge near the little town of Berkel-Enschot: an area of open heath with several small farmhouses and a sheepfold. The local people called this area 'Koningshoeven' (The King's Farmhouses) since it had once been owned by King William II. In 1881 Koningshoeven became the first Cistercian monastery in The Netherlands since the Reformation. In the early years, the monks discovered that farming the poor land could not support them, and so they started a small brewery, still the most important source of income for the monastery. As an authentic Trappist brewery, business at Koningshoeven is guided by Father Abbot Bernardus, who oversees every aspect of the day-to-day operations. Bernardus' is the final word on packaging, recipes, and image, and his daily involvement ensures that the entire brewing staff remain mindful of the special place in which they work. During the past few years, the monastic complex at Koningshoeven has been thoroughly renovated for the group of 16 monks now living, working and praying there.

Heather Flower Honey

And you'll find right away that this is honey from Scottish Heather Flower Pollen. Overall excellent & not too much hops or anything stupid like that would be. A rare treat from our Holy Brother Monks and shouldn't you love to join them in their majestic Monastery whence the marihuanas are also legal. I'd give it two Ave Maria's and a relic resonating Hallelujah which equates to five out of five stars on the secular scale. Get a dozen while you can
