Trappistes Rochefort Beer at Duck Island Ale House


At Duck Island Ale House (...and bar), we love beer!  A lot of the beer we love comes bottled, and we have a lot of it.  Trappistes Rochefort 10 is a great Belgian style beer one must try.  Beer Advocate gives this beer a rating of 100.  One hundred!  Out of one hundred!  The Bros give it a 98 out of 100 - considered World Class beer at that rating.  You can read some great reviews by beer lovers such as yourself here:  http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/207/645

There's also the Rochefort 6 and 8, in addition to the 10.

From Wikipedia...


The brewery is located inside the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy, near the town of Rochefort, and has been brewing beer since 1595. There are approximately 15 monks resident at the monastery. As with all other Trappist breweries, the beer is only sold in order to financially support the monastery and some other charitable causes. Like many strong Belgian beers, those produced at Rochefort age well and can be cellared for at least five years while maintaining quality. The water for the beers is drawn from a well located inside the monastery walls.

Pretty cool story.
