Modern Monks Brewing Mega Update

From the Monks...

2012 is finally here and it could not have come sooner! Towards the end of 2011 we decided to make a few upgrades to the brewery and were able to do this with your continued patronage and dedication to our brand. As things go, the upgrade was not as quick as it was supposed to have been. You might notice a few of your favorite beers missing from the menu. Have no fear! Everything is up and running again, the fermentors are full, beers are conditioning and very soon your favorites will be back on tap.

Join us all month long as we celebrate FeBREWary and get your favorites back on tap along with some very delicious seasonal.

The Monks were able to join their friends at Thunderhead Brewing in Kearney to whip up a batch of their Belgian Dubbel collaboration Thunder Monk. (ON TAP NOW)

FeBREWary 2nd we will see the return of our Orange Wheat and not a moment too soon!

St. Meinrad’s Belgian Quad, a 10.2% beer is another of our series of Wandering Monks brought to you by award winning home brewer John Farher from Omaha. We took this beer and aged it in rye whiskey barrels for 6 months giving the beer a nice vanilla character that melds well with the dark stone fruits flavors that the normal version has.

FeBREWary 6th this beer will be released along with the reappearance of our Robust Porter and Espresso Porter

One of our favorite beers in our Wandering Monk Series was just brewed as well, Black Beards Oatmeal Chocolate Stout, the brain wizard behind this beer is Lincoln’s own Jason McLaughlin. This beer will be released on FeBREWary 13th along with the reappearance of our Belgian IPA.

We took our Rye Doppel Bock and filled a number of oak barrels in order to impart the same vanilla character that the barrels added to our Belgian Quad. 9.0%. Look for this beer to go on tap FeBREWary 20th.

The final beer to go on tap in FeBREWary is The 402. This is another beer in the Wandering Monks series brought to us by Jason McLaughlin. It is based on beer that was brewed by Irish immigrants before the turn of the century, using the ingredients that they had available. An Irish Red style beer with a kick of corn sweetness and a hit of Rhynalds Nebraska grown hops . Look for it FeBREWary 27th.
