Barrel Of Monks Brewing, 1141 South Rogers Circle #5, Boca Raton, Florida 33487, (561) 510-1253.

From its website Of Monks Brewing describes itself as…
Out of our passion for beer made by monks in Belgium, was born Barrel of Monks Brewing.
We love Belgian beer! We proudly brew Belgian inspired ales to bring the taste of the old world a little closer to home at our production brewery in Boca Raton, FL.
We use the finest equipment and ingredients and combine that with a deep understanding and love of Belgian ales to create finely crafted ales that pay homage to the great beers made in Belgium.
Our beers are created for those who are willing to take the time to truly appreciate the look, aroma, taste, and overall experience of a fine ale. We will not compromise the quality of our products by taking shortcuts or using inferior ingredients in the effort to make money, and we believe that quality of the beer is the number one goal.
In a nutshell a small local brewery located in an industrial park, which is looking to sell its products both- wholesale and retail (it has a small bar on premises)…food trucks and restaurant deliveries provide food.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats were at the 3/25/15 “opening party”- where “guests” paid for beer samples and food truck offerings…

Nothing for nothing, but Jeff Eats just doesn’t get this “deal.”

Unless I am really missing something here- the retail part of Barrel is going to be at best a “college kid ala Animal House” destination…taking that theory one step further- Boca Raton isn’t exactly College Town USA- so the audience is gonna be quite minimal! Throw in a location that absolutely STINKS (if you don’t have a GPS in your car you’re a goner!) and I see big time River City problems ahead!

As for the wholesale-end of the business, Jeff Eats has no real “knowledge” about the wholesale micro-brewery industry…so I really can’t comment on the viability of Barrel Of Monk’s wholesale prospects.

Jeff Eats wishes the owners well!

    Jeff, like you I went to that open house event. Nice size crowd. Handful of food trucks and a band. The location is horrendous for a retail business. Why go there when you got all of the ale houses, hooters, tilted quilt in the area? No food except from food trucks. The ales I tasted were good. The event seemed to be very rookie-ish in nature and the crowd was kind of scuzzy. I think that this brewery is set for failure.
