Spencer is the name of the brewery operated by the cistercian monks at St Joseph's Abbey in Massachusetts. For many years their economic activity was centred around making fruit jam, a sizeable concern that results in 2 million jars sold in 26 flavours around New England and neighbouring states every year. One brother, who had an interest in craft beer and had interned at a local craft brewery, began converting other monks on the virtues of brewing and role of brewing within the church. In 2010 a delegation spent two years visiting every trappist monastery in Belgium learning the art of brewing, and in 2013 Spencer became the only trappist brewery in the USA.
