Two stores in my city were lucky enough to get shipments of the special box gift set in. Just picked up my gift set, super excited!

Why does something smell fishy? Perhaps you were not aware of the one-time batch for export to raise money to help fix the monestary.

I am aware. But the expected delivery date through Shelton Brothers was pushed back to September. Your beer store must know some very higher ups.

I have 7 bottles of Westy 12 from my trip to Belgium last fall. We visited the monastery and were permitted to buy the three beers they made.

Oh I see, yeah we heard that some shipments were delayed, but our original date of July 20th managed to stick. I'm regretting not buying two, one to drink and one to save!

Your ID says you are in Canada. Still there? I wonder if that effected the delivery date. Different agreements with different distributors maybe?
