Some other BAs and I are coming to Belgium in May from our hometown of San Diego. We will be staying in Brussels and plan to take day trips to Bruges and Antwerp, and also hope to visit Westvleteren, though we know it will be tricky because we don't plan to rent a car. Two questions: 1 - Any tips on where to buy 12-bottle shippers in Brussels? We would check them as luggage on the return flight. 2 - Any advice on getting to Westvleteren without a car? We aren't looking to buy cases of the beer, just to visit the place, eat and drink at the cafe and maybe buy six-packs if they're available. I've seen the Thirsty Pilgrim blog about taking the train to Poperinge and then taking the Belbus from there, but the blog is from 2009 and I don't know if that option still works or if a better one has come along. I'm also looking to set up an in-person trade if anyone's interested. I can bring any of the following: Bruery beers - Almost anything they've released, including Chocolate Rain, Grey Monday, Black Tuesday, White Chocolate, Gunga Galunga, Barrel-Aged Coton, Three French Hens, Grand Funk AleRoad, Melange 1, Melange 3, Oude Tart, Oui Oui, Sour in the Rye, etc. AleSmith - BA Speedway, Kopi Speedway, BA Kopi Speedway, BA Wee Heavy, BA Numbskull Firestone Walker - batch 1 or 2 Parabola, batch 1 Abacus, 15th anniversary Eclipse - I have several 2011 varieties I could bring. Lost Abbey - Veritas 009 Russian River - older Consecration, Temptation, Sanctification or Supplication. Fresh IPAs - I can bring fresh bottles of Pliny the Elder, Alpine IPAs (Nelson, Duet, Pure Hoppiness, depending on availability), Sculpin (bottle or can), or just about any other west coast IPA. My top want is Blabaer and my #2 is Fou Foune. I'd be happy to take home a box full of those two. Beyond those, I'd be interested in Blauw, Cantillon one-offs, vintage Cantillon bottles, Framboos, other rare lambics. If anyone's interested in trading, just send me a BM. We'll be there 8 May to 17 May. We also plan to bring some bottles to open up at bars/breweries, so if you want to meet up for a beer, let me know.
