I don't think they view their purpose in life is to brew the greatest beer known to mankind; selling beer is a means to an end, so fine - they need money, if I see Westy 12 in the store I'll give them my damn money!
Minor point of correction:
Monks ORIGINALLY brewed beer because of the fasting during Lent...when their diets were severely restricted, as well as an alternative to unsafe drinking water...here's one link to more info: http://www.st-stefanus.com/en/history

now i suspect they brew it for money as well as FUN! after all, that's why I brew(fun-don't think I could sell it...)

Just what I need. A few million more adoring fans. And smelly Egyptian ones to boot. Great!

Hey! I ain't smelly! (not even Egyptian) - just needed something fun and beer related to distract me from the Demonstrations down the block - this thread is amusing,

Do you actually get to brew in Egypt or do the
rules of Islam prohibit that? I'm curious about the availability of beer or other alcohol in the area. I'd like to go and dive in the Red Sea someday. (Not until we'll after the current unrest has died down). But if I can't have a beer after the dive I ain't goin'

Yea. They thought they had problems before. I'm picturing something from Ghostbusters where the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man terrorizes mankind.

Yeager, are you F'ing serious? You think that you're worldly and well traveled because you got your Disney Passport fully stamped. "Around the World" means more than buying a beer in Canada Land, (And no, we don't want to hear about how you and Leeann played "Around the World" with a bushel of cucumbers and a quart of Mazola.)

And the Cape is the only guy in the history of the world who goes overseas for a semester of college and never left the campus. He's a seasoned world traveller , that one is.
