Sierra Nevada and the Trappist-Cistercian Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California are collaborating on Trappist-style Abbey Ales - the Ovila Abbey Ales series. This series of Belgian-style Abbey ales is made in accordance with the centuries-old tradition of the monks.
In 1931, California newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst purchased an abbey and shipped it to Northern California. Hearst’s plans were never realized, and the stones fell into disrepair. In 1994, the Trappist-Cistercian monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux gained possession of the ruins and began the reconstruction of the historic abbey. Proceeds from this Ovila Series will benefit the monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux in their efforts to rebuild an architectural marvel—a 12th century, early-gothic Cistercian chapterhouse. The medieval chapterhouse—Santa Maria de Ovila—was begun in 1190, near the village of Trillo, Spain.
The monks operate a winery, so it was a fitting choice to age this Abbey Dubbel in a blend of red wine and bourbon barrels to add a new level of complexity to an already beguiling brew. Rich malt flavors of burnt sugar and caramel blend seamlessly with bright fruit notes from the wine barrels, while the bourbon oak lends a mellow hint of vanilla.
