Birra Nursia logo

Birra Nursia is brewed by the Benedictine monks of Norcia, the guardians of the legacy of St. Benedict in the city of his birth.

Norcia is known throughout the world for its outstanding culinary and gastronomic specialties. We have complemented this great culinary tradition by adding to the high quality regional foods a beverage that can accompany rich and savory meats, as well as fresh or aged cheeses.

YOUR IMPACT

All revenue the monastery produces is used to support the work of prayer and evangelical witness at the monastery in Norcia.

 

Naturally, this includes offering warm hospitality to pilgrims and the poor, who are assured of being welcomed at the monks’ door. The destruction wrought to St. Benedict’s hometown following the 2016 earthquakes has made urgent the task of building and preserving a space in Norcia for those seeking God, monks and pilgrims alike. Every purchase of Birra Nursia helps ensure that the monks will have a place to sing the centuries-old Latin chants, to build up their brewing industry, and to call home.

  • On June 12, the monastery celebrated 20 years since its canonical founding in 1999. For this historic anniversary, it seems right to me to finally add a motto to the crest of the monastery: Nova Facio Omnia (“I Make All Things New”). Taken from the Book of the Apocalypse (Chapter 21, verse 5), it describes the New Jerusalem in all its splendor. I believe this verse captures both the spirit of our first twenty years and provides an orienting principle for the future. The search [...]

  • We wish you and all of your loved ones a holy Easter week.The Easter Solemnity this year brings us face to face with the mystery of death, new life and Christ’s sacrificial act which brings those two together. First with news of the fire at Notre Dame in Paris and then the stories of the hundreds of dead and wounded Christians in Sri Lanka, we try to unite our prayers at the foot of the Cross, with all those suffering from these tragedies, and we pray that the light of the Resurrect [...]

LIMITED AVAILABILITY!

The earthquakes have brought about necessary changes to many aspects of life in Norcia, including the monks’ beer sales.

MONK-TO-TABLE

In an age of increasing popularity among farm-to-table restaurants and products, where “food traceability” is a sign of quality and authenticity, buying directly from the monks is a reminder not only of where the beer comes from and how it’s made, but of who it goes to support.
