Inside the Breweries

This combination beer journal, history book, and travelogue grants readers rare access inside monastery walls for an in-depth look at the legendary breweries of Trappist monks. Join three American beer writers as they travel the globe, and come to appreciate each abbey with a reverence informed by the brewery directors and monks themselves.

Read about the origins of the Trappist religious order and the monks' long enduring relationship with the art of brewing. Hundreds of full-color photographs transport you inside these monasteries and their rarely-seen breweries.

In separate chapters, you will explore all 11 abbey breweries, including the expansive production facilities at Chimay, the coveted gates of Westvleteren, the ancient sunbaked walls of Tre Fontane, even America's first Trappist brewery in Spencer, Massachusetts.

Learn about their histories and beers, gain helpful travel tips, and enjoy both new and historical photography and original artwork capturing the spirit of each destination.

We bought this book for a family member who is a real beer aficionado and lives near Spencer, MA. It was a nice change of pace reading & now he'll visit Spencer.
