In case you had not noticed, Christopher and I love beer. We love tasting new beers, going on beer tours, and showing our love for our local breweries. We could not resist when we heard that Friar's Brewhouse was doing an open house.
Friar's Brewhouse is run by the monks of the St. Elizabeth Monastery in Bucksport, Maine. Their Whoopie Pie beer won an award at the Bangor Beer Festival this summer. This was their first open house and they plan on hosting one each season.
Christopher and I loved talking to the monks. They were incredibly friendly and were willing to talk about anything and everything. Their Saint Nicholas Ale was simply delicious and we purchased a bottle to crack open on Christmas Day.
It doesn't hurt that their monastery is absolutely peaceful and beautiful.
We are looking forward to trying out what else they have in store!
