MARTIN’S LIFE WAS A VOYAGE
PROFOUNDLY MARKED BY SHARING.
While Martin was still a soldier at
Samarobriva (modern Amiens in France)
he experienced the vision that became the
most-repeated story about his life.
He was at the gates of the city of
Samarobriva with his soldiers when he met
a scantily dressed beggar.
He impulsively cut his own military cloak in
half and shared it with the beggar.
From the late 4th century to the late Middle Ages, much of Western
Europe, including Great Britain, engaged in a period of fasting beginning on
the day after St. Martin's Day, November 11.
St Martin is the patron saint of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps, which has
a medal in his name.
In the year 1096, bishop Radbot gave the monks of Saint-Martin ‘s Abbey
the right to brew beer, a rare privilege granted by king Childeric.
In those times of plague and other diseases, people knew that drinking beer
was much healthier than drinking water!
This exceptional beer, with a refined and subtle taste, is made of barley and
3 kinds of hop, inhanced with unique spices.
St Martin abbey exists in 330 and 750ml formats.
• St Martin blond 7% abv
• St Martin brune 8% abv
• St Martin triple 9% abv
• St Martin winter brew 8.5% abv
