The Beatles never played in Belgium. However, there seems to be monks chanting in “Tomorrow Never Knows” from the Revolver album. See below for a trippy video of the Revolver album cover (which was also on a t-shirt I wore in high school).
What in the world is this beer’s connection to the Beatles, then? Ok – Monks developed the Trappist yeast (Wyeast 3787 in our case). The Beatles went to India and delved into various religious and spiritual cultures, which popped up in their music, most noticeably with Revolver. There were 4 Beatles. A Quadruple (4) is a Belgian style ale of great strength and bold flavor. That’s what!
DIY supplied us with the recipe.
Extra Light LME
Pilsner and special aromatic grains
Perle and Sterling bittering and flavor hops
Dark Candi syrup
We drank some Monk’s Blood (21st Amendment, MN) to inspire our brewing and give us fortitude to accomplish this advanced brewing endeavor. Cheers!
