    Saturday July 8, 2017

    Hopleaf is excited to host an Author Meet-and-Greet for the new Trappist Beer Travels book!

    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.

    To craft the book, authors Caroline Wallace, Sarah Wood and Jessica Deahl journeyed thousands of miles together, from the United States to Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, and back again, for the complete tour of the world’s 11 Authentic Trappist monastery breweries.

    Written with a reverence informed by the brewery directors and monks themselves, Trappist Beer Travels takes readers inside each abbey’s unique history and brewing culture. The book is brimming with new and historical photography, original artwork, and helpful travel tips along the way.

    Trappist breweries included in the book: Orval Abbey, Achel, La Trappe Trappist, Rochefort, Chimay, Westvleteren, Westmalle, Zundert Trappist, Stift Englelszell, Tre Fontane & Spencer Trappist.
