    I'm just wondering, is it possible to buy Westvleteren bottles anywhere in Brussels? A friend of mine is going to be out there for a week for work (so he'll be unable to really travel outside of the city), and I'd love it if it would be possible for him to pick me up a bottle or two.

    Let me know where he will stay and i will ship some bottles to his hotel. I have done this before and is works like a charm! You can pay the costs by paypal. Mail me if you are interested.............

    Beer Mania does...but it's pricey...I think €12 for the 12 and less for the others at the store. They also sell the wooden cases for €15.

    Pretty sure 8 and the blonde were available at bier tempel two weeks ago for like 9 and 8 euros respectively. Or take up Thijs on his offer.

    It's shame he can't get a car for a day off and drive out - it's like an hour and a half.

    Yeah, I replied to the other guy and not you because I was in Brussels about two weeks ago, not in February.

    I saw the 8 at Bier Temple on Monday for 9 euros. They didn't have any 12 on the shelf and don't remember if I saw the blond.

    They don't always have them, I was a regular at Bier Temple for a while and I only ever saw Westies there once. I believe the 12 was 12€, the 10 was 10€, etc. It was too expensive for me, so I didn't buy any. I regret that now that I don't live in Brussels anymore...

    From my experience you're bound to find a bar or bottleshop carrying them, but marked up quite a bit. Just ask and they'll be straight up with you b/c they think people will pay whatever they charge, especially if you're looking for it.

    I'm still kicking myself for not buying a wooden case when I was there in April 2011.
