One of the most highly anticipated releases by 21st Amendment Brewing – “Monk’s Blood” has shipped. Monk’s Blood is a Belgian Strong Dark in a can. A head turner for nothing else if that alone. This beer is a flavor kick. Love Belgian beers or Belgian style beers? Pick this one up.
21st Amendment founders Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan traveled to Belgium to develop the recipe for this special beer, visiting small, traditional breweries in the hop fields of west Flanders, not far from the famous Trappist abbey of Westvletren. Monk’s Blood is designed to pair beautifully with rich winter stews, creamy cheeses, unctuous desserts or just by itself, in a Belgian tulip glass, with a good book by the fire.
