At the brewery, 39 Euros for 24 bottles which is actually higher than it used to be due to demand.
This is about $2.15 USD per bottle. Stateside, it's $14 USD per bottle in this "fundraiser brick"
If you go to Belgium and don't want to go to the brewery, the monks ban resale of their beer outside of the abbey but a lot of stores in Brussels and Gent carry it for 20 Euro per bottle or "free" if you spend 100 Euro at their beer store since they aren't allowed to sell it.
The brewery and drive to the brewery are great. If you can get it, pick it up in person and enjoy. I have 10 or so bottles left from my trip.
Rochefort 10 and St Bernardus 12 is comparable and far cheaper so I usually give Westy 12 bottles to traders as extras so they can try / review it.
