In , a small band of Trappist monks is sent from their mother house in Kentucky to Missouri to establish a new monastery. They arrive at a time in history when Jim Crow still flourished in the American South and where, in the Bible Belt, Roman Catholicism was viewed with deep distrust. The decade also predated the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.

The community consists of four groups: The daily routine of the choir monks involves primarily chanting and study, with a few hours of physical labor, while the lay brothers tend to most of the farm chores.

The brewers are treated with the utmost respect, with each monastery getting its own chapter, its own personal history told, its own in-depth description of their current brewing operations, and of course an overview of the specific brews that each one produces.

Not only those, but each monastery is covered with gorgeous pictures, and helpful snippets of information on what else travelers can do should they ever have the good fortune to visit these establishments that are a mix of prayerful solitude and masterful beer-production.

Trappist 13

The thoroughness with which each monastery is covered is absolutely top-notch, to put it lightly. This is not merely a guide to Trappist brewing. Aug 11, Lili rated it it was amazing Shelves: I received this book as a digital advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The introduction to the book is blessedly brief — on I received this book as a digital advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The introduction to the book is blessedly brief — one and a half pages - describing only how the three authors went from a plan to visit ten Trappist breweries in ten days to a more contemplative eighteen day itinerary that included the newly founded eleventh Trappist brewery in Rome.

They explain that their book will expound on the history, spirit, and beers of each individual abbey visited. The chapters will also explain where to go and what to see for those who want to journey to the Trappist breweries on their own. After reading the introduction, I was excited to read the book. Of course, I was delighted to see that the introduction was immediately followed by a map of the Trappist breweries.

The call out on the map of Europe enlarged the country of Belgium so that it was easier to see where the six breweries within the country were in relation to each other. However, given the rough outlines of the other countries on the map of Europe, it was difficult to tell what country the Engelszell Abbey was in. FYI — it is in Austria, not Hungary. The location of the Spencer Abbey on the much smaller call out of the United States looked much more Mid-Atlantic than New England; however, that was definitely forgivable as the authors had made clear in the preceding Introduction that it was in Massachusetts.

The history begins with Robert of Molesme striking out from his abbey to found a new austere monastery at Citeaux, continues through the Trappist reform of the 17th century, and ends with a description of the Trappists in modern times.

  • The authors also take the opportunity in this chapter to clear up the misconception that Trappist beer is a style of beer all its own. The historical overview is followed by one chapter on each of the eleven beer brewing Trappist Monasteries. Each chapter begins with a one-page pen and ink sketch of the abbey, labeled with the abbey name and location.

    These photographs really provide a sense of place and personality to the stories of each abbey. I am definitely going to buy this book as a wedding gift for my friends because the travel writing is very engaging and the beer writing is very intelligent. The travel tips and area attractions will most certainly be useful in their planning their bucket list trip s to drink all the authentic Trappist beers. Personally, living in New England myself, I am inspired by the book to maybe make a pilgrimage to Spencer, Massachusetts to visit the abbey in that area. Apr 15, Jill rated it it was amazing Shelves: Beer writers and enthusiasts and good friends Caroline Wallace, Sarah Wood, and Jessica Deahl came up with the idea to take a road trip through Europe and North America to visit all the breweries currently making Trappist beer.

    When they started making plans, there were ten, but by the time they got everything in place, that number became Filled with information on each of the 11 Trappist breweries, it's almost a travel guide for those interested in following in their footsteps, as they include tips on the attractions at the monasteries and the cities nearby as well as ideas on where to stay and where to eat. While some of the monasteries are still rather isolated Rochefort, in Belgium, doesn't allow visitors, only guests interested in an extended spiritual retreat , most have made room for visitors with gift shops or restaurants.

    The Abbey brewing La Trappe in the Netherlands is using solar panels and electric cars and relies on the man they have nicknamed their e-monk to run their online store, and the monks in Vleteren, Belgium Googled the women before they arrived. However they chose to make their beers, each one is enriched by the contemplative focus and closeness to nature that these monks' lives offer.

    With rich histories of wartime struggles and religious unrest, each Abbey and their resulting beer is infused with centuries of wisdom and resilience.

    Trappist Tales : John Richard Sack :

    Each beer's story is different and fascinating, and knowing more about these beers and their origins can only increase our enjoyment and reverence as we raise our glasses. I found this book to be beautiful and moving, and I am considering ordering a copy for every beer lover in my life. I may not make it back to Europe in my lifetime, and if I do, I may not be able to tour all these beautiful abbeys, but I can hold a piece of them in my heart as I enjoy the fruits of their labor and say a quiet thank you to all the monks who had a hand in making all our of our lives richer with these lovely ales.

    Jul 20, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: Really charming review of the few breweries that can also call themselves Trappist - i. I got an advance digital copy for my truthful review last summer, and now I am planning a Belgian trip where 6 of the true Trappist breweries are and I find myself wanting a physical copy! The authors go into detail not just about their time visiting the breweries, but a lot of the stories about the history and the abbeys as well. I fee Really charming review of the few breweries that can also call themselves Trappist - i. I feel even a non-crazy-beer-nerd like myself could enjoy this book.

    I wouldn't recommend it as an e-book though - at least not with a text-specific e-reader like my Kobo - as the images throughout tend to not be as readable digitally.

    Dec 15, Ilana rated it really liked it. I may confess that I am not a big beer drinker - if any - but the idea of a journey around the world in trappist beers sounds entincing, especially for the history and cultural stories to be told. This beautifully illustrated book by Caroline Wallace is a great inspiration in this respect, as it covers not only the tastes and the ingredients used for creating various trappist beers, but is sharing a lot of tasty, moderately alcohol-infused tales going as far as the Middle Ages. A very interestin I may confess that I am not a big beer drinker - if any - but the idea of a journey around the world in trappist beers sounds entincing, especially for the history and cultural stories to be told.

The women traveled to 11 Trappist monasteries that make beer to sustain themselves.

    Each monastery, brewer and brewery was different and interesting but the underlying Benedictine rule was constant. One chapter for each monastery with beautiful photos of each. Unfortunately, the authors did not add much personality to the book so it was a bit "dry.

I'm planning a trip to Belgium soon, and when I was approved to review Trappist Beer Travels, I decided to focus my trip in visiting the breweries mentioned in this book.

    Being fairly decent beer fan, Trappist beers caught my attention some time ago, but I never truly followed up on the information behind the scenes. This book provides that information, and then some! Oct 11, Scott rated it really liked it. A beautifully written and designed book depicting not only the bustling travel of these three women authors, but also the incredible Trappist history from monastery to monastery, and beer to beer! I get the sense that the authors were transformed in writing this book.
