Leicestershire’s Mount St. Bernard Abbey is giving beer lovers the unique opportunity to volunteer, by helping to bottle its popular beer on site.
A social media appeal has been posted by the Abbey, which offers people the chance to work on a Tuesday and Wednesday every other week, bottling its Tynt Meadow beer.
The message says that anyone interested can do as much or as little as they want, adding that some tasks are ‘more strenuous than others.’
“We are looking to add to our fabulous and dedicated team of volunteers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to bottle Tynt Meadow on site at the Abbey,” said a spokesman online.
“Bottling is currently run over two consecutive days, every other week – normally Tuesday and Wednesday. Please note we don’t ever work at the weekend.”
Volunteers will be given a free hot lunch in exchange for a day’s work, and there are two sessions each day: AM – 9:00-13:00 and PM – 14:00-17:00.
The opportunity is open to men and women 18+ of all abilities.
“Do as much or as little as you would like, no long-term commitment. Schedule agreed in advance,” continued the Abbey spokesman.
Tynt Meadow was launched in summer 2018, making it the UK’s only Trappist beer.
Their dark, full-bodied ale, which has an ABV of 7.4%, follows the Trappist beer tradition of being named after the place in which the monastery is situated.
