Default Westvleteren Gift Pack

Who's getting one? I made some phone calls today and supposedly have a gift pack on reserve. I convinced myself it is cheaper than the trip to Belgium that I won't be taking anytime soon. Plus I'll feel so awesome every time I drink out of those glasses

The lists at the bevy's around me well exceed the number of bricks coming to VT. Beer geeks going nuts in your area too?

I secured a brick, and a few additional singles. Should be getting them all this week. Can't wait to finally drink one!

Yes.

The Beer Shoppe was sold out and even had a standby/waiting list long before they even received the beers.

It is quite possibly the greatest beer in the history of beer.

I'm not touching mine until I can blind taste it with Abt 12, Rochefort 10, and Sixth glass so I can answer this question for myself. Plus it's great to get super hammered on quads

I wound up getting two of the gift packs. Split one with a friend and passed the second on to a friend who wanted to give it to a beer lover that didn't manage to get brick for Christmas.

I'm assuming it's bottle conditioned--would love to see if you could harvest some of that yeast, I would definitely be down for a trade

OK, then I will say it is absolutely the greatest liquid of any kind of all time.

Besides maybe Mila Kunis' tears.

I hadn't thought about this. I'll look into it and let you know if I manage to raise any up.
