“In a single remaining ship’s log, the original Tappist Monks (a.k.a. Tappists) referred to planet Earth as an ‘outworld’—an off-planet, out-of-system location. This reference was passed down to the contemporary generation of Tappists. An on-board plaque inscription states that Outworld’s approximately 15,000-year-old Tappist ship long served as an interdimensional, intergalactic outpost vessel for trading the finest Terran (Earth) beer and wares.
This ship, the Tappist 001, is currently localized in a commercial park in eastern Longmont, Colorado, where it had been invisibly stranded for quite some time… until its density camouflage mechanisms failed. It became visible to the Terran public on Earth several years go, just before the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020.
Rumored to have originally been guided by its gilded armillary spheres and portal generators, one of the Tappist 001’s few remaining ship logs describes how its engine was unable to be repaired. Thus, the stranded ship has been adapted into a permanent beer and food trading post in its Terran location, having been partially enclosed in a prefabricated building just before its density camouflage mechanisms failed.
Outworld Brewing consists of this Tappist ship and its two holographic annexes. The ship has been converted into a brewery and Galactic Zymurgists taproom (The Tappist Room), while the ship’s portal generator has managed to partially generate chambers from two of the Tappists’ favorite Terran locations: A Belgian-style cellar bistro (Brugge Bistro—not yet open to the public) and a lost interior chamber of an ancient magician's pyramid (Uxmal).
Unfortunately, the Tappists’ home planetary system is never mentioned by name in the surviving records, and the Terran Order of Tappists (now considered Outworlders) have been unsuccessful in communicating with their local Galactic Federation of Tappists. Thus, the Tappists’ true origins remain lost.
It is said that there were once volumes of ship logs and trading ledgers, but that they were stolen after a space pirate raid several hundred years ago. The retrieval of those missing logs has been a ray of hope for the Tappists and as such, they have tolerated the presence of black market traders like Jerrick Spade and the crew of the Lupulin One (as well some other much less friendly pirate ships) in anticipation of lost Tappist 001 ship logs and ledgers one day passing through their trading post.” - Midnight
