Buckfast Abbey Brews Up a Brouhahah!

Jump to last reply

If in Devon on the edge of the big moor you can check out the Buckfast Abbey, where since the 1880s monks that came from France have been brewing up some potent wine concoction but with loads of caffeine in it - the brew has become the rage with younger folk in places like Scotland where officials are considering banning it for having too much caffeine - like our alcoholic energy drinks (seems like an oxymoron!).

I enjoyed visiting Buckfast Abbey a few years back - nice tour and nice if not ancient abbey.
