Brewery Of The Month May - St Bernardus ABT 12, Belgium Beer   ​​​​​​ St Bernardus ABT 12 is widely regarded as one of the best Belgian beers around, but the story behind it stems from French monks, who fled taxes in Mont Des Cats, France to continue making cheese in Watou, Belgium in the early 1900s.
