St. Bernardus: History and Mystery in Watou
Rochefort: the Power of Place and Silence
Inside the walls of the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy, located in the beautiful Ardennes Forest near Rochefort, Belgium, Trappist monks brew the Rochefort 6, 8, and 10 beers. But other than a small sign and a few dusty bottles behind one of the abbey windows, visitors might never know that this is the place that produces some of the most legendary beers in the world.
This “silent approach” makes the quest to unravel the magic of Rochefort even more compelling. Join host Nate Cairney as he travels to a beautiful part of Belgium to seek a deeper understanding of the mysteries behind Rochefort – including why what you don’t see is sometimes the most important thing of all.
Westvleteren 12 is consistently ranked one of the best beers – and often THE best – in the world by beer geeks, journalists, and aficionados.
