During Mikkeller’s travels through Belgium, they were inspired by the country’s anti-commercial, independent Trappist breweries. More specifically, the classic Rochefort and Westvleteren monasteries.
From these enchanting, traditional, classic breweries Monk’s Brew arose. It is a dark Belgian ale with a dominant yeast character and deliciously malty body. Well-balanced and distinguished, the beer’s characteristic high alcohol content never takes over, and the beer is amazingly smooth and drinkable.
