It's an interesting thing to profit off the modesty of the Trappist brewers that stops them from making their beer commercially available in the first place. Especially against their explicit wishes...

Quote:
Buyers of the beer receive a receipt with Niet verder verkopen ("Do not resell") printed on it. The abbey is very much against resale of their beer, and it is their wish that the beer is only commercially available at the two official sale points. To this end, any Westvleteren beer which is sold anywhere else in the world is grey market beer, as no wholesalers or pubs are supplied with the beer. The abbey is actively working to eliminate the illicit sales, and generally only agrees to media interviews to spread their message against drinking illicitly sold Westvleteren beer.

I agree, especially with a 600% mark-up. Doesn't this sale offer violate some terms on the board?

Lets just round up to an even 600, cash on delivery via monk. I want them by Christmas, and the monk can stay for dinner.

I'm pleasantly surprised that there were people agreeing with me. Sometimes my attitude of "sticking up for what I feel is right" gets me in trouble. But then again that's why I chose to support this forum.

Cheers all you sexy home brewers

Also Happy Holidays

Reminds me of what my grandpa used to say:
The only way to make the world bright is to never mind what others say and do what you think is right.

Happy holidays to you.

I bought some while in Belgium earlier this year and brought it home. For being #1 on Rate Beer, I was expecting more. It is a good beer, but was way over-hyped to me. There are so many other beers I would rather spend money and liver on to drink and enjoy.

It just confirms to me that everyone has a different preference when it comes to beer.

I definitely can see how a beer that is objectively rated as the best may not be the most satisfying beer to each person. Sometimes, when it's served with the right food and at the perfect termperature, I can't find a better beer than PBR.

Then again I recently had my first Lagunitas Brown Shugga' Ale and think it's the best stand alone beer I've had in years.
