Westvleteren 12 US Release
 
Has anyone heard any news about the Westvletern 12 US release? I heard that it was pushed back to September back in June, but since September has come and gone, I was wondering if there was any updates from Shelton Brothers or the abbey itself.

I definitely read the news, but I wasn't counting on getting any until at least a year after they released it to the US. The hype is already at an insane level, so the stuff will sell out and be on the gray market almost immediately after release.

That's probably true, unfortunately. My plan was to go the first day it's available and hopefully get some. I guess the bright side is that it'll taste better after aging for a year!

I think you have a better chance than most, being that you are in the distributor's back yard.

Westvleteren will definitely change with age, but I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it would get immensely better. While it's a very good beer and I'll buy some of I have a chance, I also don't think I could say it's the best beer I've ever had.

Reviving this because the release was supposedly "End of November or early December." Has anyone seen these popping up yet? Unfortunately Shelton Bros doesn't distribute to Michigan...

Word is Dec 12 is the release. Total Wine in many states are getting them, unfortunately PA is not on the list.

Looks like I'm making a road trip to Birmingham.

Looks like I'm going to cross my fingers that Jungle Jim's has some left when I move to Cinci in January...
