Library Craft Beer Series: Trappist Breweries

Beer has been brewed at monasteries in Europe since before the Middle Ages, and one sect of the Benedictine Order, the Trappists, still brew beer commercially. Trappist breweries produce some of the most revered beers in the world, and an abbey must meet strict requirements to be certified as a Trappist brewery. There is rich history and tradition behind these beers, and their quality is a testament to the patience and commitment contained in the Trappist motto of ora et labora: pray and work.

In a two-part series of classes, the Craft Beer Education Series will look at the history of the Trappist order and the world's 12 certified Trappist breweries. The classes will be lead by Certified Cicerone David Nilsen. David will guide attendees through a tasting of beers from the world's Trappist breweries, explaining what makes each unique.

Part one of the series will be held on October 30 and November 1 (identical classes), with part two on December 6 and a January date to be determined. These classes are free, but seats are limited and registration is required. Please call the Greenville Public Library at 937-548-3915 to reserve your seat. We hope to see you there!
