Orval Brewery, or Brasserie d/Orval, is a Belgian Trappist brewery located within the walls of the Abbaye Notre-Dame d'Orval in the Gaume region of Belgium. The brewery was created in 1931 to finance the enormous reconstruction works of the monastery. It had hired lay workers from the outset, including a master brewer, Pappenheimer, who invented the unique Orval recipe. The brewery produces only one beer, the Orval, for the public and is widely known for its distinctive and exclusive flavour. Orval was also the first Trappist beer to be sold nationally around Belgium. As with other Trappist breweries, the beer is sold in order to financially support the monastery and some other good causes. All of the profits from the sale of the beer are distributed to charities and for community development around the region.
