I went through a solid year-long phase of Belgians. Then the hop addiction set in...

Easily. You can typically find La Fin Du Monde, Maudite, Ephemere and Trois Pistoles at most good grocery stores (HEB if you're in Texas) and Twin Liquors or Specs. At some of the better stores and I'm looking hard I can find the Don De Dieu, Au Benite and even once found the Ephemere Cassis (black currant version).

My local Gabriel's (Blanco and 1604 in San Antonio) has a full selection of Unibroue stuff and I love them for it!!! The beer guy Robert is one of the most knowledgeable people I have met regarding beer. Doesn't hurt that he's been a homebrewer for 30+ years!!!

I picked up some Unibroue products in a grocery store in Costa Rica. A beer may be produced somewhere, but this is the global economy baby

Nice... I can't even find bottles of those last two IN MONTREAL. Surprised you didn't mention Blanche de Chambly - not my favorite (that goes to Trois Pistoles and Don de Dieu), but it's practically their flagship brew. I'd love to get a bottle of Eau Benité. I still have a bottle I picked up in Montreal about a year ago that I never saw before, and haven't since, called Chambly Noir.

I love Unibroue though. The first beer I bought when I turned 19 was a sixer of Trois Pistoles, and that definitely sent me on a path of enjoying great beers

That's funny. Over ten hears only about 2 of my batches have been belgians. I just don't care for them. To each their own I guess.
