Barrel of Monks was founded by good friends who came together to create something that has seldom been done in the United States…a brewery making exclusively Belgian-style beer. The focus is on quality – combining traditional techniques with modern technology.

The Journey

Several years ago, they started traveling to Belgium to see how their favorite beers were brewed. Along the way, they learned about themselves as well as the beer. The three friends started brewing themselves and never looked back, honing their brewing skills to develop high quality ales reminiscent of the fine ales coming out of Belgium.
