World’s 8th Trappist Brewery Bottles First Beer

Until now there were a mere seven true Trappist breweries in the world – i.e. brewed by Trappist monks.  The 8th (based in Austria) has now produced their first beer.   Gregorius has officially been bottled, named for the former Abbot of Stift Engelzell.  Some sleuthing found the below from the Trappist Association newsletter:

The Trappist monastery of Stift Engelszell is located in Engelhartszell, in the northern part of Upper Austria, on the Danube, in a valley with wooded hills.  This monastery has been a member of the International Trappist Association (ITA) since 2008.   In 2009 the ITA granted Stift Engelszell the right to use the “Authentic Trappist Product” label on its Trappist liqueurs. Today the Trappist community is launching a dark Trappist beer, the “Gregorius” (9.7% ABV).

Gregorius is one of two beers coming this month fromt the new Trappist brewery.  [BelgianBeerTravels]
