    Is this beer easily found for purchase in Brussels or is it a restricted supply type of brew? Thank you.

    Shouldn't be hard to find. Supermarkets might not stock it, but many other shops selling beer will.

    It is. Check the supermarkets first such as Carrefoure (sp?). It will be cheaper than buying from the bottle shops in the city as they have a pretty high mark up because of all of the tourists.

    Do not buy this beer in beershops but in a local supermarket. It will cost you about two dollar a bottle max!

    Thanks. The 10 is available at Delhaize. Don't know if the 12 version are however.

    I've bought the 12 in a few groceries, I think a Carrefour, GB and Delhaize, and I've seen it in a Cora. I would imagine that a decent Colruyt would have it, as they're usually good for selection. If you're planning a trip, post back here where you're going to be, and we might be able to narrow down advice.

    Sorry for a second post, I also meant to suggest posting in the Benelux forum, too

    Agree ! I've seen it in many supermarkets already. When in the centre of Brussels, try the Delhaize supermarket right next to the stock exchange building.
