The Beer Cardinals Drink in the Vatican
Online purchase and doorstep delivery of Birra Nursia is a great thing.
The monk-brewed craft beer is made at the birthplace of St. Benedict, in the hills northeast of Rome, in the enclosure of the 1,000-year-old monastery.
I was able to visit the brewery last year in Norcia and it was a delight to see how the local Benedictine community has grown and flourished since the last time I was there.
The beer is generously served in the restaurants of Norcia (Trattoria dal Francese is my favorite).
The monks have a newly renovated gift shop which is a must see, as well as the crypt of the Basilica, where St. Benedict and St. Scholastica were born.
To enjoy the beer is a touch of heaven. All beer ought to be made by monks.
A limited quantity of the beer will be available each month.
