Trappist Beer Seeks Monk

This isn’t really about a lack of means… but rather a lack of motivation… or perhaps devotion. To be called “Trappist”, a beer has to, among other specific criteria, have its brewing supervised by a monk. Now, the last two monks who were officiating at Saint Benedict’s Abbey are too old. “Achel” beer, without the monastic ingredient, will still be brewed at Saint Benedict’s, but will lose its “Trappist” title.
