Manhattan Brewing unveils Trappist Ale.

Manhattan Brewing unveils Trappist Ale

The Manhattan Brewing Co. recently announced the return of its popular Belgian Trappist Ale, a beer style brewed only by Cistercian Monks in a handful of Trappist Abbeys in the Belgian Ardennes.

To duplicate the Abbey beer, brewmaster Mark Witty enlisted the help of Paul Prozzeller, a leading expert on Belgian brewing techniques. Prozzeller also recently walked away with the American Home Brewer of the Year award for another Belgian beer recreation.

In order to brew the ale, Witty explained, a special yeast culture was secretly procured from a famous monastery in Belgium, flown back to New York City by courier, and incorporated with the rest of the Ale's recipe in early April.

Consequently, the beer, which is full-bodied and golden-colored, produces a flavor that is a result of the special "wild" yeast strain.

The beer was be unveiled at the spring meeting of the Master Brewers Assn. of the Americas, held May 9th at the Manhattan Brewing Co.
