Wouldn't that mean that Trappist breweries are getting too mainstream?

Well, "Brewer, Patriot" is a much cooler label than "Wal-Mart Greeter, Prepper", although I'm digging the "Mon Calamari, Rebel" thing going on up there.

I've always wanted to try some Trappist beerses so I for one welcome this. I can't afford to go over there to Europia and try the "real" thing.

Hipster/beer snobs are becoming monks?  I don't need to see that.

Nothing gives great head like a Trappist
 
2013-12-12 04:45:06 PM
As long as they are not trapesting children I do not have a problem with this.

Sex is overrated. You can't be superior without being celibate.

/but that is the straight edge angle, right?

For a minute I thought it said jacks abbey and got excited. They make some tasty beverages out of Mass. Dont know about this place.

Pope Francis should make some homebrew.

TFA said Monks just have to be present, so fark that no sex trash talk, we'll just cage a few Monks in the brewing room, they're present, RIGHT?!

I don't get it. What other things should they feel superior about?

Lame ass sports teams that are made up of guys not from there?

Trappist, shmappist. The Benedictines at Christ in the Desert make a Tripel that will wreck you and make you like it.

Why does it matter if a beer was brewed by monks or not?  I'd be more concerned with taste than with the religious convictions of the brewer.

Haha

Sounds like the Catholic version of halal/kosher.

IIRC, alot of the Trappist beers have corresponding cheeses.   That would be nice

Good news, then; basically all trappist beers are available in the U.S. Westvleteren is the ony one I can think of off the top of my head you can't get here, and Chimay is actually pretty common. If you have a craft bottle shop anywhere near you, stop in and check it out, the one down the street lfrom me (in a town of less than 2,500) usually has beers from at least seven different trappist breweries, and a couple grocery stores in my area have a few as well (which is especially impressive for PA)

Congratulations, Belgian trappist beer is best beer. Boston is one place I haven't been to yet, but want to.

And congrats on your Series win.

Even better news: Trappist beer made here is 'the real thing' because it's fresh and it's probably been correctly handled in transit.

Yeah, but it's going to be an American Craft Trappist beer which means the monks will end up putting stupid amounts of hops in it.

Anything with a high enough alcohol content usually lasts for kind of a while, and "bottle conditioned" beers/beers with yeast in the bottle age pretty well, trappist beers have both of these going for them.

And I'd imagine the higher alcohol content would make them a bit less sensitive to temperature extremes like port wine -- and my mother

So, they're behind Schmaltz Brewing, who've been making He'Brew since '96....
 
2013-12-12 07:32:10 PM
They've been making delicious jams for many years. I remember going as a kid (like 4 or 5) and wondering why my dad called the lady "sister" when she wasn't my aunt.

Just pointing out, this is in a Worcester suburb, an hour outside of Boston.

/carry on

Dangit! I was there just last year and I didn't see that one. Just Monk's Ale and... some other one that wasn't as good as Monk's Ale.

Time for another road trip.

Well, if you like the Belgian style you can Try Affligem, not Trappist but very very very good.

Boston is actually a great town. I used to live in one of the suburbs right outside and spent a lot of my 20s goofing around Boston. I moved away when I had kids, live next to historic Salem now. If you got time to spend Boston and Massachusetts is a great place to visit in the end of summer, or even better in the fall when the leaves are a changing!

I'm not really a sports guy, but doesn't "made up of guys not from there" describe EVERY pro team?

As someone who's from a country with 6 trappist breweries, I'm willing to make a deal. Send me one of yours and I will send you one back, you choose. I could even get the Dutch one.
