Trappist Westvleteren gets a new bottling line

Brouwerij Westvleteren has a brand-new bottling line. A new Seamco machine replaces a circa 1978 bottler that was used previously.

Brother Joris, the manager of the brewery, told me in an e-mail last week that the he and the other monks of De Sint-Sixtusabdij have used the new bottler several times, and that they are very content with the new machine.

Seamco is a Belgian manufacturer. See:

My friend Danny van Tricht was the first journalist to see the new line, and he has the first photos of it here:
