What about the Nuns!?!?!

29 Jul

Seems I’m not the only one who is puzzled by the excessive talk of the genius monks behind monastic breweries producing the illustrious trappiste/abt/quadrupel brews.  While I was googling around for an answer to nuns and brewing I came across several other blogs that are asking the same question.

Convents work under the same restrictions as monastic communities and must be self-sufficient enough to provide food, drink and some income to keep it all running.  Surely they didn’t rely solely on income from crafts, tutoring or being nun-like at official occasions.  These women had the same set-up and resources as the guys, so why aren’t we hearing more about them?!

Anyone care to elaborate?
