Unibroue La Fin du Monde Abbey Triple ~ 34.1cl
One of the most famous craft beers from Canada with over 35 international awards.
A rich and sophisticated golden ‘Belgium-style Tripel’ with a refined taste marked by notes of fruit and spice, supported by a slight bitterness.
It was Unibroue’s third Abbey inspired ale – brewed since February 1994 and the result of 18 months of research and experimentation before release.
La Fin du Monde is a tribute to Québec and the 16th-century French explorers, who – when they encountered it for the first time – thought they had reached the end of the world. Those who try it agree the beer is like nothing else on earth.
Unibroue beers are unpasturised and unfiltered with a secondary fermentation in the bottle – these “live” craft beers stand out for their unique and stylish taste.

La Fin du Monde is now the most awarded Canadian beer with 62 international accolades as of 2023. It has won the title of “World’s Best Tripel Belgian Style Beer” three times at the World Beer Awards.
Golden colour and a floral ‘bready’ bouquet with aromas of honey, spices, coriander and malt. Its mildly hoppy palate has fruit and spice followed by a smooth, dry finish. A perfect balance of sweetness, a little bitterness, spices and alcohol.
Beer and food pairings: Ideal with sausages, quiches and omelettes, oily fish (salmon, trout), seafood (oysters, mussels, scallops), ratatouille; but also with cheddar, parmesan and blue cheese.
About the Brand
Unibroue is a pioneering craft brewery in Quebec, Canada.
History was made in 1993 with the launch of Blanche de Chambly – the first ‘Witbeer’ (wheat beer) from North America brewed in the Belgian tradition and refermented in the bottle. This ‘Abbey’ inspired beer was followed by Maudite ‘Dubbel’ – the first strong beer in Canada – and then, after 18 months of research and development, the first ‘Triple’ – La Fin du Monde in 1994.
They are Canada’s most highly rated brewery with over 400 worldwide awards to date.
The origins date to 1990 during the fast growing ‘craft beer’ movement when André Dion founded Unibroue with the idea of uniting Quebec’s microbreweries for distribution throughout Canada. When this ambitious project fell through he joined Serge Racine by investing in La Brasserie Massawippi, merging with Unibroue in 1992 and moving to Chambly the following year – opening a state of the art brewery there and further major investment was forthcoming in the following years.
Their passion for Trappist and Abbey beers was furthered in 2003 when Belgium trained Jerry Vietz joined and who still remains their Brewmaster.
Unibroue use fresh yeast with every brew and understanding the importance of yeast strains have an internationally recognised laboratory dedicated solely to the cultivation and maintenance of their own yeasts.
Production and distribution increased when Unibroue was purchased by Sleeman in 2004.
To reduce their ecological footprint, 99.19% of the materials generated by the factory are recycled or upcycled.
