    Hey guys I will be visiting Copenhagen 4/26-4/30, Antwerp 5/1-5/6, and Bruxelles 5/7-5/11. I have a few bottles to trade

    Churchill's Finest Hour 2013
    Chocolate Rain Batch 1
    Others possibly

    I am looking for a few beers that I have never had the fortune to try and at this point probably won't so here is the list

    Jean Chris Nomad
    Drie Font 50th anniversary and Millennium
    LH12(I know huge long shot)
    Alexander Rodenbach(also looking for the glass)

    I'm not sure if either those bottles Interest anyone but I would love to try and work out a deal. I do have others I could offer up as well. Shoot me a message.

    Good luck ,
    Most of the beers that you want are nearly impossible to get
    At de heeren van liedekercke they don't sell them anymore for take away ( roos sold out , blauw , crianza , rodenbach alexander ) but You can drink them there ( except roos )
    Blauw and crianza are 125 € to drink at de heeren
    LH 12 at chez moeder lambic fontainas , not for take away , to drink there for 250 € !! ( for a flat beer that dosn't even taste very good)

    I'm planning to go to De Heeren Van Liedekercke on my trip, but damn, €125 for a bottle is tough (€250 just nuts, wouldn't go there). There are actually 2 different prices on their site, so I'm a little confused which is correct.

    Thing is, they can't be much better than the more easily available Cantillon and DF stuff. But I do understand the thrill of drinking unobtanium. I'll have to figure out if I can stomach it.

    A 2010 review of Moeder Lambic Fontainas said they had Cantillon Pinot D'Aunis for €35. Don't know if that price has changed, but that seems like the best value of the bunch to me.

    Fointainas had Hommage and some vintage DF Oude Gueuze on their bottle list. Hommage was 50 euro if I recall.

    Thanks guys for all the info and help. Looks like I will not be trading for or drinking Blauw or crianza as I just can't bring my self to spend $170 on a bottle of beer.

    I saw the haves and wants, and I was like "lol".

    No offence to you specifically, but this is getting more and more ridiculous.

    Dennoman, I'm coming to Belgium in 3 weeks, and I can't wait to find you and drink all your whales.

    I agree! How dare these tourists come to Belgium with their very rare, expensive, small batch craft beers trying to trade for other very rare, not very expensive, small batch craft beers! Insanity!

    I admit, I was a tad harsh :wink: I guess the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

    That being said, they can all be had at the right places if you know them I suppose, but you'll fork out a lot of cash for them.

    LH12 is €180 instead of €250 I think, if that makes anyone feel remotely better.
