More Product Info

Spencer Brewery at St. Joseph's Abbey offers three varieties of Spencer Trappist Ale in this gift-packaged set --- sample them with the authentic Spencer glass included.
  • Spencer Trappist Ale (ABV 6.5%) is a full-bodied, golden-hued ale with fruity accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, live yeast naturally carbonate the beer in the bottle and keg and contribute to flavor and aroma.

  • Spencer Trappist Imperial Stout (ABV 8.7%) is a massive, roasted, malt-forward American Trappist take on the Anglo-Russo Imperial Stout tradition. Luxuriantly frothy foam, waves of coffee, chocolate and caramel sensations, a generous blend of dark fruit flavors. Intense and robust.

  • Spencer Trappist Holiday Ale (ABV 9%) is deep, hazy mahogany with a creamy beige head. Aromas of sweet malts, dark fruits, and spice carry through to the taste; dry and peppery on the finish. A heart-warming feast day ale from the monks' table to yours.
One 11.2 oz bottle of each variety is included, along with one Spencer glass; a great gift for the beer lover in your life!

Monastery Info

St. Joseph's Abbey: Spencer, Massachusetts

St. Joseph's Abbey is a monastery of the Catholic Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O.), popularly known as the "Trappists", located in Spencer, Massachusetts.

The Abbey was founded in 1950 by Belgian and French Trappist monks from the Monastery of Our Lady of the Valley in Valley Falls, Rhode Island, which had burned to the ground. In the rustic hills of central New England, they established a new home in which to follow an age-old contemplative way of life.

The monastery became known internationally as the origin of the Centering Prayer movement in modern Catholicism and Christianity, whose leading proponents were monks at the monastery: Fr. William Meninger, Fr. M. Basil Pennington and Fr. Thomas Keating.

Work has always been greatly esteemed in the Cistercian tradition, since it gives the monks the opportunity to follow in Christ' footsteps and share in His Divine work of creation and restoration. The monks participate in three major industries which provide for their livelihood and for the care of the poor. Since the 1950s, they have produced Trappist Preserves, their popular line of 30 flavors of jams and jellies. Since 1949, The Holy Rood Guild has created beautiful, finely-tailored liturgical vestments to enhance the dignity of the Sacred Liturgy. In 2014, with the advice and assistance of their brother Trappists in Belgium, the monks founded Spencer Brewery, producing the first and only certified Trappist beer made in the United States.

  • Yum

  • This Trappist brewery makes really great beers. What I found interesting is the Stout. I believe that this is the only monastery that brews Stout.

  • Well pleased

  • Excellent service and product presentation. I am familiar with some of the preserves and looking forward to trying new ones. Have not sampled the beer yet, waiting for the right moment. Shipping costs are a bit high.
