The Monks of Birra Nursia

The Benedictine Monks of Norcia have opened their new brewery in Norcia, Italy. Birra Nursia is located within the walls of the Monastery of San Benedetto, in the Umbria region of central Italy. Due to the strict Benedictine rule of enclosure, the brewery will only be open to the public once a year. However, the beers are for sale at the monastery gift shop and at local restaurants. When we someday get back to Italy, perhaps we'll get to try out these beers. Meanwhile, we'll enjoy this video tour of the brewery and the inauguration day celebration.

More monks brewing more beer! All seems right with the world.


  1. As a Benedictine Oblate, this does my heart good. Makes me wish I wasn't allergic to beer.

    1. TC, happy to hear about your devotion - very nice. Sorry about the beer allergy.
