“World’s Best Beer” available in stores for first time

westvleteren ABC News:

Beer aficionados are pouncing at the rare opportunity to buy one of the world’s most elusive and revered beers for the first — and perhaps only — time in the United States.

It is called Westvleteren XII, and it is often hailed as the “world’s best beer” by reviewers and fans.

Westvleteren XII is produced by Trappist monks in Belgium and sold at the abbey of Saint Sixtus in the Belgian countryside.

First person to compare this to Heineken gets punched in the junk.

    I’m with you, Shawn. Why would anyone compare pisswater like Heineken to this sweet Belgian nectar?

      Because Dalrymple has brainwashed sheeple into thinking that Heineken is drinkable.

    Sold out already unfortunately. It’s going for a buy it now price of $600 for a six pack on eBay!

    I’ve had it and it’s pretty amazing. Only gets better with age too. Had some we bought in 2005 earlier this year and it was superb.

      $600 a six pack amazing?

      I think I’ll get some Kentucky Bourbon Ale on the way home.

      • Miles

        Haha definitely not. I would potentially pay $120 for a 6 pack, but that would be pushing it…

    Having been denied this one, I might console myself with a Chimay or Ommegang come the weekend.

    I’ve had this on many occasions, I actually have some laying around in the house. Maybe it’s just because I like amber and blonde beer a lot more then dark, but I would never label this as the best beer in the world. And it has gotten a lot less good and more watery in the past decade.
