In the Villers Abbey's archives was discovered one of the monks' recipes for beer, dating back to the 18th century. This precious find inspired new recipes to its microbrewery.

4 organic craft beers are now brewed within the abbey: the V, IX, the Lumineuse (light) and the Ténébreuse (dark). Visitors can learn how beer was brewed over time, whether in Villiers or elsewhere in the world.

Brewed from organic ingredients

The 4 beers brewed on site by the Brotherhood of Hostieux Monks are made with organic ingredients.

  • The Villers V beer or L'Authentique (the authentic one): light, brewed in the purest tradition of abbey beers
  • The Villers IX beer: a 9% triple beer perfect with a meal
  • The Ténébreuse and the Lumineuse: these beers refer to the abbey’s motto: post tenebras, spero lucem (after darkness, I hope for light)
