Spencer Trappist Ale and Trappistine Chocolates Pair Well!

Just an hour away from the sisters of Mount St. Mary’s Abbey, their Trappist brothers of St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, MA are celebrating a new first. Spencer Trappist Ale.  The first certified Trappist Beer in the U.S.

And we expect they will pair well with Trappistine chocolates.   We recommend pairing a glass of the new ale with our Trappistine Dark Chocolate Squares.  (See links below for other pairing hints and tips.)


Following the Cistercian/Benedictine rule, the monks, like their sisters here at Mount St. Marys Abbey, are committed to preserving the natural.   Not surprisingly, then,  Trappist Ale is made with only four natural ingredients:  water, hops, barley, and yeast.  It is unpasteurized and unfiltered, which enhances the flavor and aroma of the beer.

And, like their sisters at Mount St. Mary’s abbey, the monks at Spencer, MA are also committed to renewable energy. Read more about the monks and their beer at www.spencerbrewery.com.

Help us celebrate the work of our Trappist brothers’ hands:  enjoy a glass of Spencer Trappist Ale with some of our chocolates today.

Ask your local purveyor of beers how you can purchase some of the first production of Spencer Trappist Ale.  And, our chocolates are just a click away.  Enjoy!
