FILIP GEERTS'S BEER GLASS COLLECTION

This is a collection of beer glasses (mostly old ones), which I still use to taste.
My favorit beers are the trappist beers. The name "TRAPPIST" is a registered name and may only be used by 7 breweries (Abbeys) under supervision of Cistercian monks. These monks have the know-how of brewing these beers for about 2 centuries now and have always improving their brewart !
Six Trappists are Belgian: Rochefort, Westmalle, Westvleteren, Chimay, Orval and Achel.
One Trappist is Dutch and is called La Trappe.
Drinking these beers in their original and if possible in their original OLD glasses is really a surplus value in the appreciation of them !
CHEERS !
