Trappistes Rochefort, Part 2: Abbey, Church, Library
Well, it’s been awhile since I posted Part I of this Rochefort series. Here is part 2, finally: A look behind the scenes in the Abbey, Church, and library at the Trappist ‘l Abbaye Notre Dame de St-Remy, and its Brasserie Rochefort. This April 2013 tour was given by Frère Pierre, the monk in charge of the brewery.
As I mentioned in Part I, this was my fourth visit to the abbey and brewery at St-Remy. The beautiful abbey grounds, with its many fountains, an old mill, and other serene architecture, make for an incredibly peaceful visit.
The Abbey and Library can rarely be visited, so enjoy the photos from this hallowed place.
The three Rochefort beers-6, 8, and 10-are proudly imported into the USA by Merchant du Vin of Seattle, Washington.
Part III will be the bottling line, lab, and rest of the brewery…..
