WILK Friday BeerBuzz–7 Jan 2011 (Rochefort 10)

WILKFridayBerbuzz8It’s a bittersweet day on the Friday BeerBuzz.  While our featured beer of the day is an amazing beer, it’s troubling to know what’s gone on at the Abbey Saint Remy (Rochefort Trappist Brewery) over the holiday break  If you haven’t followed along, the Trappist Abbey brewery where Rochefort is brewed had a fairly serious fire on 12/29 that damaged portions of the brewery.  You can check out my posts and updates on the topic HERE, HERE or even HERE.

Thankfully, the brewery will survive and the beer will continue to be produced and packaged.  So far we’ve seen no shortage but stay tuned for a post later this morning on where you can get Rochefort beer in our area.

imageWe always seem to love beers based on the brewing style Belgian Quad on the Friday BeerBuzz.  Think back to Ommegang Three Philosophers, Breaker Brewing Belsnickler or even St Bernardus Christmas Ale….and you’ll see we love quads.  So what better way to pay tribute to our fallen beer comrades at Rochefort than to choose a true Trappist Belgian Quad.  Trappist beers are among the rarest and most flavorful historic beers available today.  Rochefort 10 is a classic among beer lovers and as always, I strongly recommend you try one.  They are a little more expensive than many mainstream beers (about $10 for an 11.3oz bottle), BUT Rochefort 10 is over 11% ABV, it’s well worth the price, it’s a very special beer to toast your friends and family and of course it’s a fitting tribute to Rochefort as they recover form the fire.

Get out and get some Trappist Rochefort 10 for yourself.  You won’t be sorry. 

Thank you

to John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
