The Benedictine Order is named for Saint Benedict (ca. 480-547) of Nursia, Italy. St. Benedict established rules for monastic life, one of which was hospitality. This called for providing sustenance in the form of “liquid bread,” or beer. This 1300-year-old tradition continues with Christ in the Desert Benedictine Monastery and its brewing arm, Abbey Brewing, which crafts fine, award-winning beers.
