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 Monks' Reserve Ale (ABV 10.2%) is a fragrant, robust and full bodied Quadrupel, mahogany in color and crowned with a dense, tan, frothy head. Its malt-forward profile yields to a warm finish.

  • 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!

Brewery Info

Spencer Brewery at St. Joseph's Abbey: Spencer, Massachusetts

Spencer Brewery is a project born of tradition and necessity. For over 60 years, the monks at St. Joseph's Abbey have cooked and packed jams and jellies at their monastery under the Trappist Preserves label. This business has supported them, while providing wholesome monastic work and charitable assistance to persons in need. However, looking to the future, they saw a need for an additional enterprise that will support their community and charities in the years to come.

Just a few years ago, one of the brothers expressed interest in brewing and even did some training at a local craft brewery. Over time, his passion for brewing affected some other monks, who recognized that brewing was a very traditional monastic enterprise. Thus, when the time came to re-chart the economic path for the monastery's future, the idea of a brewery gained traction.

With the blessing of the abbot, they embarked upon a two-year data-gathering mission. They visited each Trappist brewery to learn everything they could from their European brothers. Beginning at the Abbey of Westmalle, they slowly made their way around Belgium, staying at the monasteries and making friends, receiving good advice and drinking some of the world's best beer. The final stop of their first trip was the Abbey of Sint Sixtus, brewer of the acclaimed Westvleteren ales. By the end of their second trip and more detailed discussions, they were confident that they had put together a realistic plan for a new brewery. Following monastic tradition, the monks voted and confirmed the project by an overwhelming majority to build America's first Trappist brewery.

Observing Trappist tradition, they named their brewery, and the beer, Spencer after their beloved town of Spencer, Massachusetts.

  • At long last

  • I've been trying to get my hands on these beers for years. But, I was not disappointed. Malty and well balanced, the beers finished crisp with a bit of aftertaste that left me craving more.

  • 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.
