Monasteries have been brewing as far back as the sixth century to provide sustenance and benevolence to the communities they served. Water-borne epidemics during this period were commonplace, and the boiling of beer during the brewing process, made it a far healthier option than the town’s water supply.
SO MONKS BREWED.
What made monastic breweries different was that the monks brought patience, process and dedication to the practice of brewing. At Monkless, there are no monks, but this is our devotion. We practice patience to perfection in our brewing process, focus exclusively on Belgian-style ales and believe we live in a benevolent universe.
