news that St. Joseph's Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Spencer, MA, is going into the beer business. Deacon Greg has a link to the Fox News website, which has details of the beer venture. The report states that the monastery has received the necessary permits from the town and are brewing their first batches now. This will be the first Trappist ale brewed outside of Europe, and in America
If the quality is anything close to their jams and jellies, they have a winner here.
