Tonight Swamp Head Brewery will be tapping an Espresso Habañero Oatmeal Stout that was done for their friends at the Taste of Gainesville event. Head over to Gainesville, FL for a taste at The Wetlands. Swamp Head will also be pouring their Ephemeral Release Patersbier.
What is a Patersbier? Well, most Trappist breweries feature a “patersbier” or “fathers’ beer” that is only available within the monastery. Although designed to be consumed by the monks themselves, it is sometimes offered at the monastery’s on-site café. The term “patersbier” does not designate a style as such; it is usually a weaker version of one of the regular beers, and may only be offered to the Brothers on festive occasions, both of these facts relating to the Trappist tradition of austerity.
