Massachusetts abbey now producing only Trappist ale outside Europe

"The source of the new ale that is causing the excitement is a new building on the grounds of St. Joseph's Abbey. It is a long, stainless steel, silver-gray, 36,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art brewery located in a section of the 2,000-acre property that is closed to the public. It looks nothing like the other buildings at St. Joseph's Abbey, which are stone and wood, for the most part.

It is the first brewery at a Trappist monastery in the United States. Eight other Trappist monasteries, all in Europe, also have breweries. Six are in Belgium, one is in the Netherlands and one is in Germany."

I hope their brew finds its way over to West Michigan soon.  I would love to try it.  I've tried other Trappist beer in the past and really enjoyed it.
