The moment we’ve all been waiting for: the first Trappist brewery outside of Europe is now brewing right here in MA and we have it in store at Pemberton Farms. According to the Boston Globe: “The monks at Saint Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer are rolling out bottles of Spencer Trappist Ale brewed in a 36,000 square foot facility on the monastery grounds. The brewery became the 9th Trappist brewery in the world, joining Chimay, Orval, and other well-known brands. Brother Isaac Keeley, who oversees brewery operations, calls Spencer’s beer a “refectory ale” in reference to the dining hall in which the monks take their meals. While the 63 members of the abbey community usually eat quickly and read with dinner, they will be allowed to drink beer with their food on Sunday nights.” Read more from The Boston Globe article.
