Not sure if this was posted or not but the curiosity alone has me willing to shell out $85 for a 6 pack.

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. The beer can usually only be purchased by reservation at the abbey - and reservations are extremely hard to come by.

Not really a beer lover but I might drink me a IceHouse beer twice a year.

seems a bit out rageous but if they can get away with pricing it like that more power to them.

One day Im going to put on my big boy brewing pants and make a batch of this - its only about $30 a six pack.

Beaux Berry was talking about buying this stuff on twitter. I'm not sure if he did though.

i grew up drinking IceHouse and South Paw... It's awful. Plank Road might be the worst brewery in the world.

Chimay is pretty good stuff...but if you like that...you need to try this.

Hard to find, but worth it.

Any of those Duvel, Chimay, and this have high % alcohol...so don't attempt to drink like Bud Light.
