ABOUT TRAPPIST BEER TRAVELS:
This combination beer journal, history book, and travelogue grants readers rare access inside monastery walls for an in-depth look at the legendary breweries of Trappist monks. Join three American beer writers as they travel the globe, and come to appreciate each of the 11 Authentic Trappist monastery breweries with a reverence informed by the brewery directors and monks themselves.
Read about the origins of the Trappist religious order and the monks’ long enduring relationship with the art of brewing. Then, journey to the 11 authentic Trappist abbey breweries, including the expansive production facilities at Chimay, the coveted gates of Westvleteren, the ancient sun-baked walls of Tre Fontane, even America’s first Trappist brewery in Spencer, Massachusetts.

The Beer Plant Breezeway
Join us at The Beer Plant on April 17th as we welcome Jester King and Revolution Spirits for a special night of botanical merrymaking.
The Beer Plant will be pairing a seven course dinner inspired by the unique flavors and elements of the Texas hill country, with beers and spirits to complement each course from the hop geniuses at Jester King Brewery and the spirit guides at Revolution Spirits Distilling.
The menu is pre-fixe and promises to be as romantic as Venus and as intoxicating as Dionysius.
