Thanks for that list. I know some places received their shipment earlier in the week and may have distributed their allotment already.

Maybe if some are lucky enough to get a pack, we could do a little exchange through PM's on here. If said people are willing to share that is.

I agree this is some seriously tasty brew. However, after living in Europe for a few years, I am still having sticker shock every time I walk into the bottle shop. The prices that we pay for equivalent quality beer is outrageous. I think I paid about $3 a bottle over there for the Westvleteren. I am glad that I had the opportunity but SWMBO would kill me if I paid $85 for a six pack...even if it did have a couple of glasses included. Those kits are for sale in Europe for about $15-20 max. They must be flown over on a private plane. I don't pay that much shipping for my Land Rover parts coming from England.

Can anyone still get any? If someone could procure me a few bottles, I would certainly pay them a premium. I have some limited run Russian River I would trade.

No one has it around here.

I would rather drink AIPAs, Sours, and RIS most days too. But I can still admit that Westy 12 is the pinnacle of beer perfection. It's a very old, tried-and-true recipe. You can't taste that high alcohol. Very smooth and complex.

The friend I speak of used to trade them like wildfire, at cost, on another beer networking website. He no longer does this though.

Yes, +1. I would split a 6er if someone gets one, help offset that price a little.

You have a high likelihood of splitting the brick with a random customer at the liquor store. It seems to be selling like crazy. And this way, you'll save on shipping costs, while making the purchase seem more reasonable at about $43-ish.

All gone in San Diego.

I paid a premium, but i got a six pack. My dad is coming into town and he lives in Puerto Rico and had no chance of getting any.

is that a complete list of places that got it to sell? figures my state wouldn't have a single location on the list. If anyone has a bottle or 2 they want to sell, I'd be willing to pay.
