ORVAL

ANNE-FRANÇOISE PYPAERT will become the Master Brewer at Orval this October.  The current Master Brewer, JEAN-MARIE ROCK, will retire and Pypaert, who has worked at the Trappist brewery for 2O some-odd years in their lab checking production quality, will take his place.  This is the first time a woman will be in charge of brewing at a Trappist monastery. The appointment doesn’t conflict with any of the stringent Trappist requirements that beer be brewed under the supervision of monks and within abbey walls.
