So....the Westvleteren release was yesterday. NPR covered it here if you want to read about it. Rob at Pangaea said that they had fielded over 250 calls, from all over the US and as far as Japan. One guy said that his dad was dying and wanted to have a bottle before he died.
My coworker went to pick hers up at the Davis Beer Shoppe somewhat early yesterday and they had already gotten 200 calls.
Forget about all that hype, because you're not going to be able to get any anyway, and go there and get a Drake's "Pinot to Go", a delicious imperial stout aged in pinot noir barrels. Nice for the season, too. There is also a Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin' Christmas IPA that's good.
