The Menace of the Monastery
competition is a competition unique to Urban Knaves of Grain. The Menace of the Monastery competition celebrates beer styles which can be traced back to the monastic brewing traditions of Belgium and Germany. In other words – stuff monks would brew back-in-the-day. This distinctive competition is judged separately from the Drunk Monk Challenge. A special award is made for the winner of the Menace of the Monastery.
