Trappist Nouveau

Map of the Trappist Breweries of Belgium, Westvleteren, Chimay, Rochefort, Westmalle, Orva art
Mixed Media on Canvas

This is an original Art Nouveau-inspired illustration of the six Trappist breweries of Belgium - Westvleteren, Chimay, Achel, Westmalle, Rochefort, and Orval. Each brewery is represented in its proper location on the map of Belgium, along with having a cork or crown in the composition (except Achel, which have plain crowns). While some many debate which brewery produces the best beer, it is undeniable that all the Trappist breweries of Belgium have a rich history of producing world-class beers. The incredibly unique Orval, the highly-sought after Westvleteren 12, the style-defining Westmalle Tripel, the ubiquitous, yet great Chimay Grande Reserve, and our personal favorite, the Rochefort 8 are all worth celebrating on their own - - and together in this illustration.
