behind holy walls
trappists toil on God’s Proof
with sounds of silence
give rise to sweet rich virtue
drenched in history

References: This post is for the second Beer Blogging Session. On the first Friday of each month, bloggers throughout the world write or podcast on a single beer related topic. This month the theme is Dubbels.
I’ve been a hop head for so long that coming back to the sweet malty goodness of Dubbels was like a vacation. A real treat. If the Session has done one thing for me it’s that it has gotten me out of a familiar rut. The adventure of picking up something new at the beer store instead of a “sure thing” has been a real blast.
The Session is open to anyone that has a blog. There’s still time to get your post in for April, but if you can’t pull it off stay tuned and get ready for May. The host and the theme changes every month. Cheers!
Session Roundup: Alan has the definitive collection of Dubbel links for this month’s Session. He is updating them throughout the day.
