In 2016, they are now the home of the first Trappist approved India Pale Ale. The IPA is arguably the most enjoyed and criticized style of beer in America, but this is not the case for Belgium which is home to more than half of the breweries that have an Authentic Trappist Approval. Giving the Spencer Trappist IPA a very unique story.
