Single in the Sun
Belgian Style Single 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.
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.
Sour ales are a whole segment of the beer world that frighten some and excite others. They are polarizing beers, as some consumers assume a sour beer is a beer gone bad and many beer geeks believe that a sour ale must be tart enough to rip the enamel off your teeth. Our S'Tart is an attempt to find balance in the realm of sour or tart ales. We begin with an amber ale with plenty of caramel malt, and sour with lactobacillus in an oxygen-free environment to avoid harsh acidity. This is followed by fermentation with a classic Belgian yeast strain. The result is stone fruit flavors and bready malty goodness, with just enough tartness to refresh your palate for the next sip.
QuadrupelAvailable in bottles
Inspired by the Trappist brewers in Belgium, the Quardupel is a Belgian style ale that is typically dark, strong, and bold in flavor. Our Quadraphonic is no exception. Quadraphonic is deep brown in color with reddish hues. It bursts with flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, and raisins, with a long rich finish. This beer is designed for celebration and decadence, and hides it's 10.5% ABV well.
WitbierAvailable in bottles
Slightly bready with the bitter tang of orange peel and coriander spice
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.
Dry-Hopped Belgian Style-Saison
We dry-hopped Nuance, our belgian-style saison with Motueka hops.
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
