  15. You need to call to the abbey of saint sixtus and pre-order the crates. You need a lot of luck to get through because a lot of people are calling for ordering crates.

    I have friends coming from Brussels to stay here in Florida for 2 weeks. Put the word out to him the list of beers that are not found in these parts... hoping he can come through for me, but it's entirely unexpected... I know what a pain it would be to load up the luggage with a lot of beer. Next time I visit though (girlfriend was born/raised there), I will definitley be bringing a ton back!

    Do you mind if I ask how much the following go for (in Euros is fine) over there? I'll put our (Tampa, Florida) prices too....

    Chimay Red and White - $15.99 / 4-pack
    Chimay Blue - $17.99 / 4-pack
    Rochefort 10 - $6.79 / single 330
    Kasteel (all) - $15.99 / 4-pack
    Westvleteren XII (unavailable, except the bricks from 12/12/12) - $85 / 6-pack (included 2 glasses)

    Thanks!
     
  18. Hehe I'll be going myself to Florida (Miami) within 3 weeks :) Below are the prices that I paid today.

    Chimay Red: 4.60 euro/4-pack
    Chimay Blue: 4.61 euro for 4 pack
    Rochefort 10: 2 euro/single 330
    Kasteelbier: 6 euro /4pack
    WestVleteren XII: 39 euro for 24 bottles

    Thanks for the quick reply. Current exchange rate is $1.30 : 1 Euro.

    So, we pay quite the premium, presumably for the shipping. Best deal (here), based on those prices appears to be for the Kasteelbier, since it's "only" double the price here. The Chimays are about triple the price, as is the Rochefort. Hard to guage the Westy, since it was a limited release, and it included 2 glasses. If we say the glasses cost $15, then the beer was $70 for 6, or ~ $12 a bottle.... about 6x what you're getting at the monastery.

    Thanks again, and enjoy your trip to Miami!

    I had off on Good Friday and my college friends from New York were visiting my college friends in Philadelphia that weekend because they were doing a fantasy draft. I decided to drive from Pittsburgh to Philly to party and catch up with everyone. Friday morning after a staying drinking until 3 am, I woke up and drove to the New York border (while my Philly friends were at work and before my New York friends came in) to pick up the beer you see in my original post. The beer haul was a spur of the moment thing and I figured it was better than laying around hung over all day until my friends came home.

    Being new to the craft beer scene, I am terribly sorry that my haul did not meet your standards. In the future, I will try to refrain from posting anything that I feel will not please you.

  28. Finally arrived in NJ. And my rep through me a couple of these Duvel snifters? Any ideas on how to remove the hideous design on them? They feel like Stone bottle printing if that helps.

    • Ayinger Celebrator doppelbock - I've had my eye out for this for a while now
    • Weihenstephaner's Vitus weizenbock - I'm betting this is will be excellent
    • Got my Doom on, 'natch
    • Resin x2 - spot-on DIPA

    I had asked if he would mind hooking me up with the glass. It seems a number of bottles were "accidentally" packed as well.

  38. Haha, I will find out soon enough. But I will say that BB4D is one of the best beers I've ever had, especially aged for a year. It's gonna be pretty tough to beat, although I hear great things about BCBVS.
     
  39. Huge thank you to Roger85. I was having a hard time trying to hit wants for a BIF and Roger85 offered to send me something on my targets "wants" list. Today, the beer for the BIF gets delivered with these three completely unexpected beers on my wants list. Yeah, its on now.
