Here’s a refresher about a good opportunity news! The wonderful, traditional Benedictine monks in Norcia (Benedict’s place of birth) have a great deal on their beer just in time for the holiday season. How about beer with your savory Thanksgiving meals?
As you will remember, these monks have had to scramble for years after the earthquakes devastated that part of Italy. I was in Rome at that time, and we felt the quakes Rome. The quakes destroyed their church and digs in Norcia and they have had to move up into the hills and rebuild everything.
The Norcia monks have been brewing terrific beer to finance their community. They developed a “club” through which you can receive beer by monthly subscription.
This is very important for their income, especially as they have to rebuild so much that was destroyed.
They’ve taken over an old Capuchin church which will be the new monastic church once it is rebuilt.
You can help them and help yourselves at the same time!
The Norcia monks have a plan which allows them to lower costs of shipping and expand.
You can now get FLAT-RATE SHIPPING at$14.99 for a case to anywhere in these USA. If you order 3 or more cases, you get FREE shipping. Also, all subscribers to the Brewmonks’ Club get FREE shipping.
NB: Also, they monks reached out to me and said that for every FIVE new Club members who sign up and reference “Father Z” in the “Notes about your Order” line, I will get a free case of beer to share with my priest friends and the bishop.
Their beers are available in both in .75 liter bottles in cases of 6 and of 12. You can get 1 case per month or 1 case every other month.
Here are a couple idea.
Pastors of parishes and priests: I’m sure you have to entertain once in a while, perhaps fellow priests, perhaps some parish event like a fundraising supper. Think about providing BIRRA NURSIA from these great monks.
Parish organizations, Knights of Columbus, etc.: Ditto! This beer is as Catholic as it gets and you would be providing support to the monks in Norcia.
This beer is terrific with savory foods, such as sausages and roasted meets, robust cheeses and the like. Think of serving Norcia beer at Thanksgiving.
In any event, would all of you reading this, STOP, and say a prayer for the monks? They need support of all kinds.
New readers here might not know who these Benedictines are.
Help these monks, enjoy great beer and make people around you impressed and happy!
Help the monks.
