Fire at Abbaye de Rochefort

Thanks first to Beeradvocate for bringing this to our attention, and to the Belgian newsite RTLInfo.be.

Beer and Breweries in Belgium: Stella Artois, Leffe, Kriek, Beer in Belgium, Lambic, Wheat Beer, Trappist Beer, Westvleteren Brewery(also thanks to the Google translate service)

The fire seems to have destroyed part of a shed. The main workings of the brewery, plus its ancient library, were left untouched. No injuries to report either.

This is all good news. Brasserie de Rochefort is one the finest breweries in the world. The Trappistes Rochefort 10 one of my all-time-favourites.  As a thankful homage, I will offer my BA review of this beer on the next post.
