I'm not sure if it was started by monks but some european abbeys used to be 
more famous for their brewing capabilities than their religious fervor

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
                      (Henry David Thoreau)
