In 2003, the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert on the Chama River, north of Abiquiu, New Mexico, became the first American monastery to start commercial brewing in the United States during the recent rise of craft brewing in the United States. Their first product—Monks’ Ale—was introduced in January 2005, and operations have been gradually expanding ever since.
Today, Abbey Brewing has a product line that features five core ales that are available all year-round and sold as draft and in bottles. Other seasonal ales are brewed and available only as draft. Abbey Ales®— are all developed at a small—scale commercial brewery located on the grounds of the Monastery of Christ in the Desert. Some of the seasonal draft ales brewed at the Monastery are sold in limited quantities in New Mexico.
