Judgment Day

Judgment Day Wine Details
Price:

Description: A massive beer in every sense of the word. A stronger and more contemplative version of our Lost and Found Ale. Judgment Day is the base beer for our Cuvee de Tomme. Many of the Trappist Breweries produce a version of beer which ages incredibly well for many years to come. And, since none of us knows when the end of the world is coming, we suggest you stock up with lots of Lost Abbey beers so that when the end of the world magically appears from no where, you’ll have a beer or two on hand for even the stingiest of angels.

Varietal Definition
Abbey Ale:
A fruity, strong ale made by secular brewers in Belgium and based on the products of the Trappist abbeys. Abbey beers began to appear shortly after the Second World War, when secular breweries took commercial advantage of the true cultural heritage of Belgium's monastery brewing traditions, and the growing success of Trappist beers. Some Abbey beers were made by genuine monasteries until the early 20th century, such as Affligem Abbey, who brewed until the First World War, and whose name now appears on beers made by the Heineken owned Affligem Brewery. Abbey beers are not a fixed style, but will tend to be a brune (a Belgian brown ale, sometimes termed dubbel), a strong pale ale or tripel, and a blonde ale or blond.
