Oh that is sad. I only had one of their beers I think, but still sad to see America’s only trappist brewery go.

It is nice to know that beer journalism continues to decline in quality. Spencer closed not b/c of IPAs but marketing, price point, and producing a mediocre product.

I actually liked their beers, but the price point was hard to swallow most of the time. Hard for them to compete with a lot of other Trappist or Trappist-adjacent breweries that are pumping out beer just as good (or better) at a better price.

Would be have been wild to see the Monks embrace hazy IPAs or pastry stouts though.

They did make an imperial stout, which surprised me at least.
