Single in the Sun
Belgian Style Single Ale
While Belgian monks have brought us boldly flavored and high octane beers such as Tripels and Quadrupels, the beer that they are most likely drinking themselves is a Singel or Patersbeir. Like those monks, at Barrel of Monks you’ll likely see us enjoying this clean and refreshing beer regularly as there is always something to be done and staying on as even a keel as possible is key. It’s both the perfect beer to begin your quest into the world of Belgian Ales and an ideal choice after a long day of toil and trouble.
Belgian Style Quadrupel with Cherries & Chocolate
Be Mine. This is a version of our Quadraphonic quadrupel treated with cherries and chocolate. This brings one word to mind... decadence. The tart cherries and cocoa nibs added to the already rich dark fruit nots of our Quadraphonic, results in a hedonistic delight for the senses. This annual release is perfect for sharing with that special someone. Cheers!
Parade of Souls
Belgian-style Imperial Stout
This is our annual Imperial Stout. Black malts lend a subtle roastiness and velvety notes of chocolate, while our estery yeast strain combines with pitch black candi sugar to add dark fruit notes to the celebration.
Blood Orange Gose
Sour Belgian-Style Blonde with Blood Orange & Sea Salt
This is a sour Belgian style ale is crisp refreshing with a subtle tartness that is perfect for the south Florida climate. We added blood orange and sea salt to blend with the coriander spice providing our take on traditional gose.
Witty in Pink
Belgian Wit with Raspberries
Witty in Pink is our raspberry enhanced Belgian-style Wit. It is tangy and refreshing. And yes it is Pink! This beer is brewed once a year for charity, 50% of our profits go to breast cancer awareness, research, and treatment.
Belgian-Style Wheat Wine
Brewed in celebration Wizard's birthday, we've created an Super version of our Wizard wit. This wheat wine was achieved by doubling the wheat, malted barley and we upped the hops and spices. This provides a more full flavor and full bodied beer with a significantly increased ABV. Able to leap from your glass to your lips in a single bound!
SaisonAvailable in bottles
Saison is a funny category of beer. They can take the form of super funky farmhouse ales, full of earthy or even horsey aromas and flavors (horsey tastes better than it sounds, rest assured!). On the other end of the spectrum, you have the clean refined flavors or zesty spice and light, tart citrus. Our Nuance is very much in latter category, dry and effervescent with subtle spice notes that blend seamlessly with light floral hops. Neither big nor bold, it is a little more…nuanced.
Belgian Style Tripel with Hibiscus & Coriander
Pater Rabbit is our first collaboration with Fort Lapin Brouwerij out of Bruges, Belgium. This is a Belgian-style tripel with whole dried hibiscus and coriander. Both spices provide a very subtle complexity to this beer. We were proud to host Kristof, the owner and brewer, and we appreciated the opportunity to brew with such a skilled Belgian brewer. We hope you enjoy drinking this ale as much as we enjoyed making it. Cheers!
Belgian Amber Ale
From a virtuoso piece of music performed by nimble dexterous fingers to show its performers’ abilities, Toccata describes poise, skill and technique. We believe that our Amber Ale shows off these same attributes. Expertly blending high quality German 2-Row barley and crystal malts gives this beer a brilliant color and lends notes of toasty bread and subtle fruit from the yeast. Harmony and balance are the key, letting all the flavors come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
1801 Koffie Saison
Belgian-style Black Saison with coffee
Need a jolt?! We start 1801 Koffie Saison with a Black Saison and feed it a healthy dose of whole bean coffee from our local friends at Subculture Coffee from Delray Beach, Florida.
Belgian Style Doppelbock
Monkinator is our first attempt at a Belgian style version of a German style beer. Bocks are brown strong lagers and Doppelbock (double bock) is a stronger version of that style. We made ours with a traditional recipe that was modified with a little bit of Belgian Candi syrup, and uses a Belgian yeast strain that is technically an ale strain but ferments at cooler temperatures like a lager strain. The result is a moderately strong brown ale with some of the characteristics of a Belgian style ale and some of a classic German brown lager.
What's Goin' On
Belgian-Style Blonde 4 Grain Blonde
What's Goin' On is a 4 grain blonde ale - made with barley, wheat, oats, and rye. Each grain adds something - barley for beer flavor, wheat for crisp drinkability, oats for mouthfeel, rye for spiciness. Combine those with a Belgian yeast strain and you get a delicious blend that is refreshing and complex at the same time.
