Trappist beer from Massachusetts

Recommended Posts


For more than a century, Catholic Cistercian monks known as Trappists have been brewing and selling what many beer lovers consider some of the best in the world. Eight monasteries -- six in Belgium and one each in Holland and Austria -- produce the only beer recognized by the International Trappist Association as authentic Trappist beer.

And starting Thursday, the 63 brothers of St. Joseph's Abbey -- about an hour's drive west of Boston -- will join them, selling the first Trappist beer brewed outside Europe.


a wheaty, cloudy, golden ale.

available only in Massachusetts for now

certified as Trappist by the order (who knew they had their own licensing deal?)
