Belgian monks start making beer again after a two century break

Belgian monks are about to brew beer again after a break of more than 200 years.

The abbey, where the monks live, had its brewery smashed in 1795 by French troops.

But a tradition of beer making that had dated back to the 13th century will be revived with plans to build a new brewery in the monastery north of Brussels.

The project, which is being financed by Carlsberg, aims to focus on using locally produced crops and ingredients.

It expects to produce its first ales in late 2020.
