Anybody who knows me well knows that my heart lies with Belgian beers.
If you haven't read "Brew Like a Monk", I highly recommend it. The author visits a number of the Trappist breweries overseas and it is very interesting. It'll make you real thirsty!
This certain beer is Sierra Nevada's collaboration with the monks of Abbey of New Clairvaux in California....about a 30 min drive from Chico where the original Sierra Nevada brewery resides. Not a bad idea to have monks as your brewing compadres!
Sierra Nevada says,
The monks at the Abbey of New Clairvaux hold themselves to a higher standard. So when they challenged us to create a beer that transcends all others, our brewers blended Old World tradition with modern-day mastery to deliver the perfect expression of Belgian witbier worthy of a goblet but comfortable in a pint.
All of the Ovila beers I've had in the past have been high gravity (and amazing) but I was looking forward to trying something a bit more sessionable!
Enter, Ovila Abbey White!
Welcome to my blog! I want to show the world a simple meal paired with craft beer can elevate their dining experience to unique levels. Cheers!
