Cistercians in Leicestershire

I love this story.

Monks at Mount St Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire, who knew about that to start with? Well, they’ve decided that there’s no money in farming and gone back to their roots; making beer.

The full story is here on their website: Tynt Meadow English Ale.

I’m a real lover of beer history and there’s not much more historic than Trappist beers brewed by monks. I can’t wait to try it and wish them every success with the venture.
