Good one! For anyone who wants a funky lambic/geuze, check out De Troch from Wambeek
Aaaahhhh, that explains it. Who's the goose?!
More so within the past year, things will be "sold out" then reappear a day or week or whenever for sale again. Lots of factors in this, one main reason is they dont usually label all their stash before selling a new seasonal. So they sell out, then they label some more etc. There is other reasons they "sell out" and then reappear but I wont get into that.
So need not be sad, cross your fingers and you might get lucky with take-out beers. At any rate they have an amazing in-house list to try, there is always pleasant random people there to share the beers with, the tour is an interesting experience, and the staff good people that are lovers of Cantillon. Enjoy!!
Offcourse prices are much higher in de US... You also need to look @ transport, only getting the bottles there will cost you 20 dollar a bottle... And the guy that is importing these bottles also need to take some profit...
Not to get off topic Yalmik but mass transportation of beer with an importer (Shelton Bros) that has a solid logistics supply chain setup from EU to US already means that the cost of transport, customs, duties, etc. will be far below $20 a bottle. Then you take small cuts for the distributors and beer stores (these ones add large profit %). The reason costs are so high in the US is not because of logistics... it's because of hype.
Except that rarity, and greed, even more so than hype.
Thanks for the helpful post, indeed it was as awesome as expected, and they still had St.Lam and Vig for sale, so it must have just been that day.
Back at 3pp for St Lamvinus and Vigneronne. Also still had Bruoscella, Cuvee Saint Gilloise and Magnum (besides Geuze, Kriek and Rose). Geuze also had 3pp limit
St Lamvinus is sold out, it's not on the takeout menu anymore
It will be back. I don't see them consciously selling out with the Public Brew Day coming up next weekend.
I think it seems to be on and off right now. My gf went in this morning and it wasn't on the takeout menu, but she said that they were labeling some and managed to pickup 3 bottles.
Anyone know prices for Vig, St Lam, or csg?
Vig and St Lam : 12 euro
CsG: 7,5 euro
Anybody still know what the beers were on open brewery day to take away and taste?
Going this year and really really excited
Yesterday Magnum Geuze (1pp), St.Lam (3pp), Vig (3pp) and CSG (3-pp) available. (besides the regulars)
Just read on Facebook that apparently st. Lam is off the board right now.
Drank a St. Lam Grand Cru on site and it was delicious.
well I made my pilgrimage last week. Probably not going back again in my lifetime but this thread was pretty helpful. Thanks guys.
Hey if anyone will be there this Saturday 3/18/17 & would like to meet up to share some bottles! can only try so many by myself. I will be wearing Michigan State green to be easy to spot me.
I'll be there this Saturday with a group of 4. We'll likely be wearing some Wisconsin Badger red so feel free to say hi to us!
Did you lose a bet?
I had MSU winning it all in my bracket last year...
I will be wearing a Cubs hat and Illinois State t-shirt to round out the Midwestern theme. I didn't attend a Big Ten(?) school, so gotta support the NIT this year! I can't believe I just said that...
I'll be there in early May. I won't be wearing any American sports gear and certainly won't be looking to drink any non-Cantillon bottles. If anyone wants to buy Cantillon bottles to share on-site and trade stories about Belgium (from you) and San Diego (from me), I'm game.
Thanks for keeping to-go bottle list updated!
Thanks for this thread. I will be back in Belgium the end of next week and the week after. I think I will try to visit Cantillon on either March 24 or March 25. Good times as always.
Hey Jimbo, there are already a bunch of us meeting at Cantillon on Saturday the 25th. You should come drink with us.
Excellent. Let me know what time you will be there. Beermail or post. I will be staying in Antwerp, so will get to Brussels Midi by train and walk over.
Up for a bottle share as well! I'll be there with some friends coming over (you'll see, some Asians ), probably wearing my KUL uni sweater. Cheers !
I am going tomorrow for the open day! Great beer list Hope to share some bottles!
Don't forget our Public Brew tomorow.
Doors open at 6:30am.
In addition to our classic beers available for tasting, Lou Pepe Kriek 2007, Menu Pineau 2009, 50°N-4°E 2012, LH12 brewed in 2005-bottled 2010 and La Vie est Belge 2016 will be available..
A little over 400€ each. Same buyer.
Wow! I had my bet on around 200 each. Would never imagine 400!!!
I wasn't too surprised. It was nice to try the MP for 30€ on-site ;-)
Any other "special or seasonal" bottles added to the to go list today for public brew day? (Besides auction bottles)
Vigneronne, St Lamvinus, CSG, Iris, gueze magnum. And the regulars.
Family member of mine is heading to Cantillon on the 24th. Anyone here used a shipper from Lazenne before to bring back to US? I have a 12 shipper being sent to him and was wondering whether their boxes needed to be taped shut or provided some manner of sealing? Also whether the "large" sized box will be compact enough around the 750ml bottles or whether bubble wrap might be needed?
Check this thread: https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/info-for-shipping-packing-boxes-bottles-to.460111/
I think all you need to know about it is in there
Looks like they changed what is available for take away on the website today. Any updates from anyone enjoying some fine beers onsite today?
They tend to treat Belgians/Dutchmen like crap.
We will probably be there most of the day Saturday. Come join us.
I was told today that Lam and Vig are sold out for take home for the season.
I don't know if this has been answered in the 37 pages or not. I'm going to be in Brussels in early May and Cantillon is a definite stop for my wife and I. Do they accept credit card? I apologize if this has been asked/answered before.
