Maybe those good hearted souls have taken it upon themselves to raise further funds for the Abbey by hoarding and selling it on eBay only to send the profits back to Sixtus? No, I'd put my money on heathen vultures. Way to show the monks what we think of their desires.

Hey did you ever catch that thread in the classified where the guy was trying to sell cases he had hustled off some beer festival? He was literally trying to take bread from the mouths of the monks the sick bastard. I think the mods deleted it.

Yeah he had evidently gotten a bunch of his buddies together for a "limit 1" release of some Westy that the monks had literally released at less than normal prices for this event as a special promotion. He was trying to double his money on the stuff, and the guy who had negotiated the deal on the Westy happened on the thread and told him how incredibly disappointed he was that he was trying to do such a thing. I wish the thread was still around, it was classic the way it culminated.

The local bottle shop around here got 53 bricks to be sold at 5:00 PM. By 4:00 the line was easily 150 deep. I was amongst the folks towards the head of the line and had a good time losing feeling in toes due to the cold but also meeting some seriously cool people.

I am looking forward to brewing the clone real soon so I can do a SxS taste test next Christmas. If the clone is as close as the masses in this thread have said then I should be in for a real treat!! I had planned on brewing the Westy 8 clone first... But since i happened upon a sixer of the real stuff today my plans have changed!

Even though I haven't brewed this yet I applaud the efforts of the ones that really put the time into making the recipe what it is.

In Orlando they were going for 90 for what I believe had six bottles. That was friends going in on it together though, so the brick may be larger and more expensive but that's the cost breakdown. Saddly both the total wines that were carrying sold out before anyone was able to get there in time.
