The small Trappist brewery inside the monastery at Westvleteren exists purely to provide a source of income for the monks, and they refuse to expand their output. The community describes themselves as monks who make ales, rather than brewers, and are careful to keep their three ales out of shops and normal retail distribution chains. This scarcity has perhaps added to the mystery and the appeal of the brewery and its products, which are often called the best in the world.
