Just had the super lucky opportunity to imbibe the ultra-rare Cantillon Zwanze, on International Zwanze Day in Portland, Oregon! This gem gets tapped at noon world-wide. Part of a 35 barrel global distribution celebration in which all kegs are tapped at exactly noon o' clock. And I'm here to tell you it is amazing. Crisp, lightly sour and well worth the drive and the wait in line. I am honored to have sipped this incredibly rare beer at the same time as all the other lucky beer lovers world wide!
And at this moment, I'm nursing the Oak Aged Pale from Petrus. Holy $hit, that's gooooood!

Wow, moved in to the 'puter. Couldn't see the prices on the phone! If you drink enough, it really is cheaper just to fly to Belgium! Haven't had a Cantillon in years. Jealous!

Half of that is just ChurchKey. The markup at that place is usually asinine. I go there for events like this and that's usually it. Forked out just shy of $100 this afternoon.

What I am drinking: The penultimate bottle of my first homebrew after an afternoon of bottling my Honey Cherry Wheat, and relaxing before I start brewing my Chocolate Milk Stout. It's gonna be a good day for Homebrew here!

They had 5 Cantillon beers in addition to Zwanze, $12 for 10oz give or take, or cheaper 4oz.

If we could get Cantillon in NC, sounds like about how the Thirsty Monk would bend you over....but damn! I remember getting Lamvinus at the brewery for maybe 6 euros a bottle. Looks like a great line up, though.
