Behold our ever-present releases.
Each one of these ales is an expression of what we stand for as a company and value as brewers—tradition, integrity and craftsmanship in our ingredients and techniques.
Our most popular beer. The Wit, Witbier, or White Ale is a staple among Belgian brewers and is an ideal style for those seeking a drinkable yet full flavored beer. The large quantities of wheat lend a slight bready tang that complements the bitter orange peel and coriander spice that we add to the boil. The beer is meant to be cloudy from the suspended yeast and proteins from the wheat malt. The fruit notes, phenolic spiciness of the yeast and tangy flavor of the malt bill make this a refreshing and complex beer.
While Trappist monks have brought us boldly flavored and highly octaned beers such as Tripels and Quadruples, the beer that they are most likely drinking themselves is a Singel or Patersbier. 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 even keel 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.
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 abbey-style Dubbel. This timeless brown beer makes liberal use of delicious Belgian candi sugar which adds notes of toffee, dried fruit, just a hint of chocolate and is dry and very drinkable.
The Three Fates in Greek mythology were sisters who determined length of life and eventual demise, they held the key to your destiny. The Three Fates Tripel is a 9% ale with subtle hints of caramel, sweet bread and plenty of zesty spice. It is often described as quite pleasant to look at with a deep golden color and white frothy head.
The Quadrupel is the granddaddy of the abbey-style ales. Typically, they are dark, strong ales bursting with flavors such as dark fruit, chocolate and raisins. Our Quadraphonic is no exception to this. This dense beer hides its 10.5% well with a deep brown color and a long rich finish. The Quadrupel is a beer designed for celebration and decadence.
The quintessential beer for a tropical climate, our Single in Havana marries a clean and crisp blonde ale with tons of pink guava goodness. Finding the right balance between the fruit and the beer is key to its drinkability and this beer is not only brimming with tropical fruit but astoundingly remains dry and refreshing at the same time.
If you’re on a journey of beer exploration you’ll definitely want to stop here and stay awhile to enjoy this citrusy IPA featuring notes of tangerine, lemon, kiwi and white grape flesh. Just don’t linger too long or you may never want to leave.
