Did anyone get a hold of the 'rare' Westvleteren 12?
I had some acquired from a friend that lined up at the LCBO for hours....maybe rare but not the best in the world....Westvleteren 10 is still a might good score
We have a periodic poster on this board who did some schooling in Belgium. Although he is a particular fan of Orval, He may have had some of the Westvleteren products right from the source. I'm surprised to hear that brew made it to Canada, although the lineup is a good indication of how often it happens.
As a small town Albertan, I can't expect to see that. However I was startled to see my ancestral hometown beer in a local store: Traquair House Ale. The world is getting smaller all the time.
Their monastery is falling apart so this was a one time deal, they marketed it around the world for beer whores like myself...$70 for a six pack which all in all wasn't to bad for the the monk masturbatory hop fermented sperm....
