Spencer is here!!

This is legendary! 

The United State’s first ever Trappist brewery will be available in Connecticut for August.  How excited are we?!  The Spencer monastery has been producing jellies and jams at their Massachusetts monastery for over 60 years.  While this business had allowed them to remain sustainable for some time, they recognized a need to partake in other enterprises to support their community as well as charitable endeavors.  With some members of their community expressing an interest in brewing they received a blessing from their abbot to embark on a 2 year journey to explore their European brothers operations.  This included abbey’s like; Westmalle and Sint Sixtus (think Westvleteren) . Following monastic tradition, the groundwork was now in place for them to build the first American Trappist Brewery.

 

 

 

 From The Spencer Trappist Brewery-

 ”Our recipe was inspired by the traditional refectory ales known as patersbier (“fathers’ beer” in Flemish) in Belgium. These sessionable beers are brewed by the monks for their dinner table and are typically only available at the monastery. Spencer is a full-bodied, golden-hued ale with fruity accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. The beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized, preserving live yeast that naturally carbonates the beer in the bottle and keg and contributes to the beer flavor and aroma.”

Buffalo Trace (“Potentially Running Out Of Stuff Since 2012“) has pushed whiskey boundaries with its Single Oak Project and Experimental Collections, but there’s a new project going on that just might trump its continuous tinkering. Templeton Rye is attempting to raise hogs that taste like its whiskey, even before being sent to slaughter. The Templeton Rye Heritage Pork Project (or what we’re calling “Project Oinkway”) is going on now. There’s something to be said about bringing home the booze and the bacon at the same time, and this should prove to be a quite tasty affair.

BFM Night w/ Jérôme Rebetez… Tonight @Mikro

BFM Night w/ Jérôme Rebetez

image

Friday March 21st 

Join us at Mikro in Hamden to welcome Jérôme Rebetez brewer and owner of BFM for his only trip to Connecticut this year from Switzerland! We are going to have some EXTREMELY RARE  beers from BFM on draft.


The Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes (BFM) started in 1997, and has been one of the pillars of the Swiss craft beer renaissance ever since. BFM’s range of bottle-conditioned, top- and bottom-fermented beers is as staunchly original as our region.

The Franches-Montagnes (ancient French for “Free Mountains”) are part of the Jura Mountains, along the North-Western Border of Switzerland. The region has been for centuries famous for its watches made by master craftsmen, a tradition still very much alive, but which has been joined over the years by some of the most advanced research facilities in the watch making field.

This happy combination of tradition and modernism is also evident in BFM’s famed nectars, all crafted in small batches and hand-bottled at 1002 metres (3287 ft.) above sea level by the brewmaster himself. 
 

-       √225 Historical Saison w/ rhubarb
