If you go to Belgium and don't want to go to the brewery, the monks ban resale of their beer outside of the abbey but a lot of stores in Brussels and Gent carry it for 20 Euro per bottle or "free" if you spend 100 Euro at their beer store since they aren't allowed to sell it.

The brewery and drive to the brewery are great. If you can get it, pick it up in person and enjoy. I have 10 or so bottles left from my trip.

Rochefort 10 and St Bernardus 12 is comparable and far cheaper so I usually give Westy 12 bottles to traders as extras so they can try / review it.
So send me a bottle already. Just kidding, unless I have something you want, which is unlikely.

You're in North Carolina? That means you're near Foothills Brewing? Want to do a bottle trade? Send me a BM..happy to send you a fresh westy. you can drink it now or 2 years from now.

Foothills beers would be appreciated..I've only had the Barrel aged and standard sexual chocolate. No rush though..it's cold this time of year so if you want to do something in the spring instead, let me know.

While in Belgium there is a few bars where you can get it at good prices, last year in Mechelen you could buy the blonde, 8 and 12 for €3.50, €4 and €4.50, touristy stores will have it around €12, the same pack in Belgium costs like €35 and in the rest of Europe around €50. 85 USD seems a little to much

One of the Manhattan retail places is in my work area, but I think I'm going to pass at that price. As much as I would like to try this beer, I rarely jump onto the hype wagons. The only hype beer I've ever had (and worked hard to get) that lived up to its reputation is Heady Topper.

Why not buy into the hype? The monks that have provided something good to the world of brewing and charity are seeing their Abbey deteriorate and need repairs after providing so much to so many. This is to benefit the upkeep of their compound. It is time to return the favor. Yea, you could just donate money but you get to experience their good craft. I can see being upset with the limited distribution and the hacks that sell it for profit but the hype is from outside their world. The beer is meant to be enjoyed and will help them out...... off the soapbox.

Got a bottle in the fridge for tonight! I think it was $8 too. Might go pick up some more 10s for aging but agreed. At $85 your paying for the name and hype, not the beer...which can be worth it to some people but not to me, I'm no abbey fanatic
