It’s always fun to share adventures with a friend. I was excited to have the opportunity to visit the famed Trappist Monastery of Rochefort. They were gracious enough to allow me to invite a friend. Kevin Desmet is a Belgian who loves beer, especially American craft beer. We met through our blogs and began trading beer. When I made one of my trips to Belgium, we decided to visit several breweries together. Kevin was an excellent host and has become a good friend.

Our tour started with a monk informing us that the tour leader, export manager Benoit Minet, was busy dealing with a Ukrainian truck that had showed up to pick up a shipment. The monk, Frere Pierre, would be our tour guide. That was truly a one of a kind tour! We had to immortalize it after with a photo.
