World's Best Beer is Finally Available

Westvleteren XII is produced by Trappist monks in Belgium and sold at the abbey of Saint Sixtus in the Belgian countryside. The beer can usually only be purchased by reservation at the abbey - and reservations are extremely hard to come by. But when the abbey found itself hurting for money for an expensive renovation, the monks reluctantly made the decision to sell the beer outside of the walls of the monastery on a one-time-only basis. Beginning today, limited quantities of the beer are being sold in the U.S. and abroad. A number of stores have been sent "bricks" of the beer, which include six bottles and two glasses from the monastery. The gift box retails for $84.99.

Europeans always do this... with wine especially, they keep the good stuff for themselves and market this "special"kind of stuff to Americans and give it a ridiculous mark-up because they know that we're idiots

Westvleteren isn't a beer for everyone. It has a very pronounced and particular taste. I can apreciate it but THIS is one beer that is brawn just around the corner here, and it has been elected best beer in the world more than once. http://www.oudbeersel.com/en/
5 years ago
is it headcheese or just muscular?
5 years ago
Westvleteren is a classic Trappist. Oud beersel is really sour and bitter. Actually not for everyone neither.

you might have a drinking problem if you got a 2L bottle of beer with a dwarf on it yet dont know the name :((((
5 years ago
was it a dwarf or a gnome on the front?
5 years ago
La chouffe has a dwarf on it : http://www.achouffe.be/en

And Oud Beersel just doesn't compare to delerium tremens. It's to different. Most people don't like Geuze. Westvleteren is actually closer to Delirium and yet tastes very different.
5 years ago
Yea I just found it it had a dwarf, It has a really clear crisp taste witch reminds me of Christmas for some reason I found the picture too

all this talk about best beers...duvel is the best...delerium tremons is also yummy..i also like chimay grande reserve

Surely, the 'best' beer is an entirely subjective thing?
5 years ago
Not according to what I think.
5 years ago
obviously depends on your personal taste preferences i would think.. but im also sure they can subjectively judge a 'best overall' beer as well based on certain criteria
5 years ago
the best beer is whatever you are used to
same goes for smokes

5 years ago
um
5 years ago
it's wrong!The formula for the best beer in the world is Volume multiplied with the amount of alcohole divided by the price, the highest rate = the best beer.Or you just can brew your own shit!
