The Benedictine Monks have been brewing for several hundred years and traditionally, brewing beer was a common activity in Monastery's.
During a recent CB discussion several monks were discussing their favorite homebrew or commercial beer when blue_cowdawg posed the query "do any other monks brew their own beer".
Having brewed for about 10 years now, I thought "what a great question, I wonder how many monks here brew beer or wine like the religious orders of old have been doing for centuries."
So the question is, do you brew and if so, what is your best style?
For me, it is Ales of all types. My favorites tend to range toward the brown ale, but I have been known to brew just about anything on request from the ginger-wheat my wife likes to the 9% alcohol Mexican cerveza that is DrManhattans favorite.
