New Clairvaux in Northern California. I don’t know from Cistercians, but they follow St. Benedict’s rule, so they can’t be all bad. Plus, they just rebuilt their chapter house – the one that William Randolph Hearst dismantled in Spain and hauled over to the States. Read all about it here. Plus: vineyards! Ales!

    On first glance, I thought I was looking at an infinity pool. You know—like the one Mel has. In any case, count me in.

      Well, of course there’s an infinity pool. In keeping with Paul’s admonition to become all things to all men for the sake of the Gospel, the monks have become hedonists in their efforts to reach out to the people of Northern California.

    The chapel showed no ill effects of its long neglect.

    The Ovila Abbey Dubbel isn’t bad, either, if you’re in the mood for a sweetish malty/yeasty/toasted-biscuity brew.

  4. Looks like they’re having some flooding problems – probably need to install some basement insulation or something.
