Abbey Brewing Co.

Monks’ Tripel Ale Reserve

When first established in 2006, the Abbey Brewing Company of Abiquiu, N.M. operated the only monastic brewery in the United States on the grounds of the Monastery of Christ in the Desert. Although not certified as a Trappist brewery due to their production line being located outside of the monastery walls, Abbey Brewing's line of Belgian-style brews includes what might be thought of as the Trappist trio. That is, they produce an enkel/single, a dubbel and a tripel, otherwise known in this case as Monks' Ale, Monks' Dubbel and Monks' Tripel.
