German trained Dutch Master Brewer making Trappist Beer for the Benedictines in the UK


Very exciting news from the Benedictine monks at Ampleforth Abbey who are launching a Trappist Beer.  Actually, that should really be re-launching since it was once produced before in France. You can read about it here in this article from The Guardian   http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/jun/19/ampleforth-abbey-monastic-beer-secrets?newsfeed=true

Also interesting to note that the Beer is actually being produced on behalf of the Mokns by a  Master Brewer Wim van der Spek. Dutch-born Wim qualified as a Master Brewer at ‘Doemens World Brew Academy’,in Munich, Germany. He runs Little Valley Brewery is West Yorkshire and is a specialist in the monkish tradition of  Trappist Beers.

Pre-orders for the Beer can be placed here at the Abbey shop...
