There is another Trappist monastery, Gethsemani, near Lexington KY, that is apparently at least considering building a brewery. They have reportedly had some consultations with local craft brewers. They already make a number of food products, www.gethsemanifarms.org. This is the parent abbey of New Clairvaux, which is the people working with Sierra Nevada.

I named my brewery after my cat, Moose. He's Siamese.

The one in New Mexico is Abbey Brewing Company, LLC, selling beers from the Benedictine Abbey of the Christ in the Desert. Unfortunately there berrs aren't very good. Hopefully they will get better.
