    These guys sound more like thieves selling beer at this kind of price.
    I drink a local Texas beer that is better than any beer I have found anywhere.
    But beer is about personal taste…enjoy!

    • Clay permalink

      Really? Do thieves let you walk away if you don’t like their terms? If they were charging 1,000$ it still would not be theft. It is a mutual transaction. Do you want to give me this for that? If not, ok.

    • I’ve had Westvleteren before and, while its reputation is slightly inflated, it is a superb beer. I would definitely be buying a six pack if it were available in my state.

    • Barry permalink

      Glenn, this beer is made by one of seven Trappist breweries. Trappists are an order of Monks from Belgium and they sell beer to support there way of life and give any leftover profit to charity, so they could hardly be called thieves. For beer drinkers, the Trappist breweries have been pioneers of the Belgian style of beer so they are a big deal to beer aficionados. Westvleteren, the makers of this beer have never released their beer in the United States before, or not much elsewhere besides their monastery for that matter. So for those of us who are into beer and haven’t traveled to Belgium, this is the first opportunity to try a classic. For six beers and two glasses the asking price is a little over $10 per item which is not that bad for a gourmet beer, particularly one this exclusive.

      • mike permalink

        Actually, they did one release earlier this year. It was a 4 pack. As with this release, they needed money for renovations.

        Anyone that says they’re jacking up prices and “creating demand” doesn’t know what they are talking about. Look up an episode of 99% Invisible titled “The best beer in the world” for a cool story about these monks and their beer. The fact that there’s a demand is not their fault nor is it their problem. They simply brew so they can continue their monk lifestyle. We created the demand.

    • Kathleen permalink

      what is the name of the local Texas beer?

    • Mike Meeker permalink

      What local texas beer would that be?

    • Glenn: I’ve been to the cafe adjacent to the abbey. Bought the beer. Lugged it back to TX. Worth the effort. It’s really that good.

    • It’s only expensive because they’re bundled together. My local beer-specific market has at least a dozen beers that cost more than the per-bottle cost of this.

    • george permalink

      You need to try Westvleteren XII. I had the fortune of trying it once and I have never found anything close to it.

      • William permalink


        Very close to the Westvleteren trappist beer is the Sint Bernardus. Why ?

        Shortly after the Second World War, the Trappist Monastery St.Sixtus in Westvleteren was looking for somebody to commercialise their beer because they did not want to do that themselves anymore.

        They gave a license to the cheesefactory, and Brewery St.Bernard was founded. The brew master from Westvleteren, Mathieu Szafranski (from Polish origin) became a partner in the brewery and brought along the recipes, the know-how and the St.Sixtus yeast strain.

        They started selling the trappist beers under the brand names Trappist Westvleteren, St.Sixtus or even later Sixtus.

        During a period of 46 years they brewed and commercialised the beers, while the monks continued to brew for themselves and for sales to 3 pubs in the neighbourhood, amongst which In De Vrede, just next to the monastery.

        In 1992 the license came to an end and since then they are brewing the same beers, with the same recipes, but under a different brand name: St.Bernardus.

  2. Jake permalink

    Dang. Really wish this was available in Anchorage, Alaska. Micro brews are huge up here. Additionally, I’m a big Belgian fan and I have heard of this beer before. Oh well, better luck next life.

  3. wheremyobamaphone permalink

    @Glenn Gustafson

    Trust a Texan hick with the blood of socialist morons (Gustafson) to compare local sewage to something like this. What a classless dud.

  4. There’s a lot more to New York State than the metro NYC area!! Once again Western NY gets the shaft. The Piggly Wiggly in Homewood, AL? No offense, but really?!

    • Actually J, that is rather offensive. That Piggly Wiggly actually offers a selection of craft beer and as well as craft beer tasting nights regularly. Just because its a grocery store in AL doesn’t mean its not progressive. Each of these stores on the list got to retail the beer through seeking to merchandise it, meaning they had to know what the beer is and believe it was a smart bet for their clientele. It seems that the stores in western NY either didn’t make the distributor’s cut or didn’t even apply.

    • Flip permalink

      Michael’s right. It seems a very unlikely location for such an awesome selection of beer. (Even when you walk in, you wouldn’t guess it.) PW Homewood has a buyer who knows there’s a very strong beer culture bubbling up in the Birmingham metro area, and has been very responsive to that. She’s been able to get some things you wouldn’t even expect a really great grocery store to get.

  5. Expensive? A local retailer was selling this “brick” for $600 until recently.

    • That’s a shame. One of the unspoken (or sometimes spoken) rules of the beer is not to resell at ridiculous prices out of respect for the abbey.

      Incidentally, based on what I can tell the bottles straight from the abbey are only about $2.75 each.

  6. mike permalink

    I got one! I can’t believe it. I’ve actually been planning a trip to their abbey in hopes of tasting this.

  7. Ben Eysselinck permalink

    Why is Michigan being ignored?!? There’s a lot of Belgians up here that would love a taste of the old country.

    • Chariti permalink

      Toledo is close to you. Anderson’s in Maumee carries it.. Hope that is helpful..

  8. Rob Barros permalink

    So, what’s the deal with the distributor? Five stores on the list that I’ve checked with never got it!

  10. Brian permalink

    I still have a bottle in my refrigerator from a trip to Brugges in 2006. Waiting for the right moment. It’s heaven.

    • William permalink

      What a pity! This beer should be drunk within 2-3 years. And never keep it in your refrigerator. The ideal storage temperature is 58-64 F

  11. TGos permalink

    Why not Seattle? There are a lot of beer lovers here!!!

  12. Is anyone camping out for this? Just curious. I’m in Germany.

  13. Steph permalink

    I was lucky to obtain 2 bricks of this beer yesterday! Woohoo, life is good!
    Visited the abbey in 2007 and enjoyed Westvleteren 10 there and also brought a 6 pack home! Loved my visit there and can’t wait to enjoy my 12 bottles of Westie XII here in the states! :)

  14. It is here in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada. $86.00 @Firefly Fine Wines and Ales

  15. William permalink

    Expensive or not ? I’m a native Fleming, living at 35 miles from Westvleteren. The official price for a bottle of Westvleteren 12° is 1,471 USD….

  16. Jeff permalink

    So Missouri is off the list all together now? Bummer. Hope the monks post some pics of their new building.
