    Default Belgian monks resurrect 220-year-old beer after finding recipe

    It has taken more than 220 years but an order of monks at Grimbergen Abbey, producers of a fabled medieval beer whose brand was adopted by mass producers in the 1950s, have started to brew again after rediscovering the original ingredients and methods in their archives.
    In a sign of the significance of the news for beer-loving Belgians, the announcement was made by the abbey’s subprior, Father Karel Stautemas, in the presence of the town’s mayor and 120 journalists and enthusiasts

    Even more startling was the discovery of the still functioning 220 year old refrigerator the monks used to keep their beer cold.

    Is that a good brand? I've been thinking of getting a new fridge.

    Yes, I guess my anachronism joke font isn't working.
