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

And also find more information here...

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...
