Default Q: Where can I buy Westvleteren XII?

A: Apparently in Japan. I visited last week, went to a Beer Festival, and was brought to a package store that sold it by the local homebrewers group.

I bought a brick for list price, ¥8400 (plus the additional $ conversion and tax). They had two more boxes sitting there.

The festival was just as exciting! Lots of Japanese beers and an awesome Japanese mead. (Yokohama Winter Beer Bash 2013)

I can't compare it to a US festival (having never been), but I imagine it was more intimate and less crowded, but with much less beer.

$35 - Ouch! I assume that doesn't include shipping. But it is good stuff.
