Monkless Belgian Ales
A Note on This Beer
Just a few decades ago, Belgian Ales were practically extinct in America. But as Wine Enthusiast explains, the Belgian Witbier has since hit a revival and become “deeply ingrained” in modern American craft.
Many top breweries around the country keep this refreshing style on their year-round lists, and it’s all thanks to brewers like Todd Clement at Monkless.
Tom traveled throughout Belgium to learn traditional, artisanal brewing techniques honed for centuries by European monks, then brought them straight to one of America’s biggest beer capitals — Bend, Oregon.
One sip of today's Shepplekofeggan, and you'll taste the dedication that won Monkless so many Oregon Beer Award medals, not to mention made them stand out in beer-saturated Bend.
In fact, Willamette Week Magazine calls this impressively complex Belgian Witbier one of the best brews in Bend!
It’s SO refreshingly drinkable. You’ll suck it all down before you finish wondering how they managed to coax so much quenching citrus and delectable bready flavor out of just malts, wheat, and dashes of real coriander and orange zest.
Oh, and since you’re probably wondering — ‘Shepplekofeggan’ isn’t a foreign word. It’s actually a name mashup of four Belgian Ale-loving friends who inspired this brew: Sheets-Epple-Intelkoffer-Duggan.
So grab your own group of Belgian-thirsty buddies after you snag some extra cans of Shepplekofeggan. Time to toast to friendship… and Monkless!
*According to the brewers, it’s pronounced “shêp-ul-kof-again”

A nice beer, but a bit too heavy for a wit.
a solid belgian ale
Delicious, great flavor
Mild aroma, just a bit too much coriander for my taste but otherwise delicious
