Very nice! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those again. So tasty but so hard to get unless you want to spend a lot of money! Any Belgians on here willing to get on the waiting list for me?
Quoted from meSz:
Waiting list? My daughter walked into a Belgium establishment and just bought it for me.
That’s awesome! I’ll have to seek out if there’s a place like that around Chicago. Unless they changed something, you can only buy the beer from the monastery itself as they don’t distribute anywhere. And there’s a waiting list to even purchase it, with a case (24 bottle) limit per group at their appointment time. Apparently the wait is months. Plus the monastery only brews enough to cover the costs to keep the place running and nothing more for profit. So once their run is out, it’s out for the year. Your Belgian establishment must have a connection to keep them stocked. Cheers!!
Picked up some treats earlier today from my local brewer Mikerphone for me and my buddy. He threw some Trilliums my way for the trouble. I know I know, cans, blah. It will still be a good weekend
