Single In The Sun
Belgian-Style Blonde AleAvailable in bottles
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 DubbelAvailable in bottles
Charmingly tweaked from the Latin term Ab Aeterno which translates to “from eternity” or “since the beginning” depending on who you ask, Abbey Terno is our version of the abbey style Dubbel. This timeless brown beer makes liberal use of delicious Belgian candi sugar that adds notes of toffee, dried fruit, just a hint of chocolate and is dry and sessionable even at 7% ABV.
Possibly the most well known and timeless style of Belgian Abbey Ales is the tripel. In keeping with that tradition we use only the finest European malts and hops to craft Three Fates. The nose offers floral notes and zesty yeast aromas. Hints of stone fruits, caramel, and spices accompany this full flavored golden yellow ale. This complex beer pairs extraordinarily well with food and can be aged for years for those people that practice patience.
Belgian-style QuadrupelAvailable in bottles
The quadrupel is the grandaddy of the Abbey style ales. Typically, they are dark, strong ales bursting with flavors such as dark fruit, chocolate and raisins and our Quadraphonic is no exception. This dense beer hides its 10.5% ABV well with a deep brown color and a long rich finish. The Quadraphonic is a beer designed for celebration and decadence.
Belgian Style WitbierAvailable in bottles
Wizard is our flagship ale at Barrel of Monks, and for good reason. This is our Belgian style witbier, or wheat ale. This beer is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It has a mild bready tang from the wheat malt which complements the bitter orange peel and coriander spice. This refreshingly wheat ale is lighter in body than most wheat beers, which make this ale perfect after a long day.
Single in Havana
Belgian Style Blonde with Guava
A beer that started as a one-off that we'd send to a few local accounts, grew into one of seasonal fruit beers. Now by popular demand, Single in Havana will now be available all year! It's a light blonde ale at 4.5% with a hint of guava. We pitch our fruit during fermentation to dry out the beer. What that does is provide the flavor and aroma of guava without the overwhelming sweetness. The perfect crisp and refreshing ale to enjoy outdoors.
Monk in the Park*
Belgian Dark Strong Ale
A Belgian Dark Strong is very close in style to the quadrupel. Monk in the Park is a dark strong ale with a different malt recipe than our quadrupel and using a different yeast strain to produce another rich, complex, mouth bomb of an ale.
IPA : Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo & Mandarina Bavaria
In a world full of over bitter IPAs, our Endless Enigma is the perfect blend, plenty of hop flavor and aroma without the mouth-numbing bitterness that many pale ales offer. Our twist on an IPA provides a bold juicy flavor that comes from the Citra, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria and Amarillo hops. Now let us be clear, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a big, bold and bitter beer, but we simply lean towards offering a bit more malt balance and yeast character in our Belgian style IPA.
Simulated Summer is an IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavors coming from a heavy dose of Citra, Strata and Cashmere hops. Evoking notes of melon, citrus, peaches, and passion fruit. With so much complexity balanced by its drinkability, it's the perfect IPA to take you back to sunnier days. 5% ABV
Whether on the boat or at the beach this crisp and clean pilsner is the perfect companion and guide. With a classic Nobel hop flavor this refreshing lager will accompany you no mater where the journey takes you.
With notes of toffee, caramel and dark fruit, Trip Sitter Barleywine Ale celebrates our 7th Anniversary magical complexity worthy of contemplation. We challenged ourselves to imbue in this transcendental ale all the malty goodness a mind could possibly comprehend. For this reason it may be wise to bring along a friend to guide you through the spiritual experiences to follow. 12% ABV
2022 Be Mine*
Belgian Style Quadrupel with Cherries & ChocolateAvailable in bottles
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!
