Monks selling Westvleteren 12 in America

This is one of those stories you don't see everyday. The monks of St. Sixtus Abbey are selling limited quantities of Westvleteren 12 in America. The beer is very rare, only brewing about 3,800 barrels a year (the same since the 1940s) and the beer is considered one of the best beers.

Humble lives. Expensive renovation

The 21 Belgian monks of St. Sixtus Abbey live very humble lives. Facing an expensive roof renovation the monks decided to export a limited quantity of beer. This is extremely rare. Typically to purchase the beer you must visit the Abbey and have an appointment.

What do you think? Is the beer worth it? Have you tried Westvleteren 12 before?
