L'abbaye d'Aulne a été fondée en 657 par Landelin. Depuis cette date, elle n'a pas arrêté de grandir et de prendre de l'importance jusqu'à sa destruction en 1794.
Aujourd'hui, les ruines font la joie des nombreux visiteurs.
Ce site est destiné à présenter l'Abbaye d'Aulne du point de vue historique, architectural et événementiel.
Peut-être, incitera-t-il, de nombreuses personnes à s'y rendre et (re)découvrir ce lieu magnifique, imprégné d'histoire, d'y parcourir les lieux arpentés par les moines pendant de nombreux siècles.

Abbey beers[edit]

Augustijn (nl) and Augustijn Grand Cru, brewed by Brouwerij Van Steenberge
The designation "abbey beers" (Bières d'Abbaye or Abdijbier) originally applied to any monastic or monastic-style beer. After introduction of an official Trappist beer designation by the International Trappist Association in 1997, it came to mean products similar in style or presentation to monastic beers.[10] In other words, an Abbey beer may be:

produced by a non-Trappist monastery — e.g. Benedictine; or
produced by a commercial brewery under commercial arrangement with an extant monastery; or
branded with the name of a defunct or fictitious abbey by a commercial brewer; or
given a vaguely monastic branding, without mentioning a specific monastery, by a commercial brewer.
In 1999 the Union of Belgian Brewers introduced a "Certified Belgian Abbey Beer" (Erkend Belgisch Abdijbier) logo[11] to indicate beers brewed under license to an existing or abandoned abbey,[12] as opposed to other abbey-branded beers which the trade markets using other implied religious connections, such as a local saint.[13][14] The requirements for registration under the logo include the monastery having control over certain aspects of the commercial operation, and a proportion of profits going to the abbey or to its designated charities. Monastic orders other than the Trappists can be and are included in this arrangement.

What connoiseurs now recognize as Trappist breweries began operations in 1838. Several French monasteries, however, maintained "working" breweries for 500+ years before the French Revolution (1789–1799) disrupted religious life across the northern French province of Wallonia. Even then, some Abbey beers such as Affligem Abbey,[14] whose name now appears on beers made by the Heineken-owned Affligem Brewery,[15] resumed brewing from "working" monasteries until the occupation of most of Belgium in World War I. Commercial Abbey beers first appeared during Belgium's World War I recovery.

Although Abbey beers do not conform to rigid brewing styles, most tend to include the most recognizable and distinctive Trappist styles of brune (Belgian brown ale, aka dubbel), strong pale ale or tripel, and blonde ale or blond.[10][14] Modern abbey breweries range from microbreweries to international giants, but at least one beer writer warns against assuming that closeness of connection with a real monastery confirms a product's quality.
