The monks of Ampleforth abbey and school, which sit proudly on a ridge overlooking some of the most beautiful acres of North Yorkshire, unveil their new beer next week.
It's a major development in a virtuoso tradition of making alcoholic drinks, especially cider for which the Benedictine community's orchard has won many awards.
You can read all about it in our big brother/sister, the main Guardian, here, plus a piece by eminent beer expert Roger Protz here.
But in the Guardian Northerner's tradition of adding value, of a sort, we present two films taken when Gary Calton and myself spent a sunlit day in May with the monks. I must be honest and say that this is all part of my self-training to become an iPhone cinematic ace and they probably wouldn't make it online elswhere (apart from YouTube where they are on the Guardian playbill).
First of all, here is the abbey's Procurator, in charge of administration, Fr Wulstan Peterburs, talking about the beer. Sorry not to have found a lighter spot, but it was here or out in the North Yorkshire wind which tends to make my victims inaudible. Fr Wulstan is a very patient and pleasant man who gave us a lot of time. He's also in charge of an ace beer.
And this is the abbey's Custodian, Fr Jeremy Sierley, who runs the shop and has a twinkle and a droll sense of humour. Both films are very short and if you would like to, you can mark them out of ten on the thread and tell me where I am going wrong. I shan't mind how low the scores are because we learn from our mistakes.
Ampleforth welcomes visitors and there's lots to see and profusions of other tourist attractions, walks and places to eat all around.
