Silly Friar

Style: Belgian Enkel

ABV: 5.8%

Availability: Abbey Series

Silly Friar is the first of our Abbey Series of Trappist-inspired beers. Our enkel (or single) resembles the Belgian pale ales that would often be part of a monk's lunch and have generally fallen out of favor beyond monastery walls with the proliferation of stronger Trappist styles. Our Silly Friar uses a hefty amount of European and aged hops, but focuses primarily on the malt profile; strong bready and cracker notes give way to a dry, super malty finish with a touch of yeast funk. Enjoy it with lunch, or on its own for a delicious, refreshing Belgian-inspired treat.
