Bless, + O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain.

"The four varieties of Chimay Trappist beer. In the customary Chimay glass is the Chimay blue. The rightmost (Dorée) is only normally available at the monastery or its associated inn." - Wikipedia, Trappist Ale

Listers, bless O Lord this creature beer! The following photos are ones taken by our staff and one you’ve seen in on Facebook & Twitter. All of the featured beers below are official Trappist Ales made by monks and registered with the International Trappist Association.

I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.

Another fantastic quote on Catholicism and beer comes from fanciful mind of G.K. Chesterton, “In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe and the Cross can all fit together.” As always, if you have a picture of some tasty beer made by monks, don’t hesitate to send it in.

More from St. Peter’s List:

Also, please remember that blessed beer is the best beer. “Bless, + O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord.” Amen.

    Why would anyone put PBR next to a Chimey?? Although PBR isn’t a bad beer, it’s not Trappist.
