Where can I buy Spencer merchandise?

Currently we have glasses and our original Spencer Ale (shipped to all states but MA and UT) available through Monastery Greetings.


Do you ship beer?

Currently, we ship Spencer Trappist Ale to most addresses in the USA through these websites: Monastery Greetings and Belgian-Style Ales. For shipping outside the USA (Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland) visit Belgian Beer Factory.


When do you have tours?

Currently, there are no regularly scheduled tours.


Why do you not have tours?

We are a Trappist monastery which produces beer and preserves to support ourselves and our monastery’s charitable outreach. We understand that brewery tours are very popular, and we are honored that you wish to visit. However, in order to be a certified Trappist brewery, the brewery had to be located inside the monastic enclosure.

The monastery and its grounds are our home. As Trappists we live somewhat separated from the world so that we may concentrate on our monastic community life.  This includes our liturgies and prayer, our spiritual reading, study and meditation, and our care for guests at our small retreat house, hospitality at our gift shop, and maintenance of grounds and buildings.   Ours is a full life and constant stream of visitors could diminish our focus.  

We are not planning to conduct regular brewery tours, but we do intend to host occasional events for those who wish to visit the brewery.
