Trappist Westvleteren 12
Of all the breweries for Trappist beer, the Abbey of Saint Sixtus, of Vleteren, Belgium applies in the strictest rules. The Trappist monks only produce enough beer to continue their life as monks and not to make money out of this business. This is their tradition since the first bottle of Westvleteren was made.
Westvleteren 12 is very hard to find. The Trappist monks produce their beer in very limited numbers (about 2 crates a day). Westvleteren 12 and Westvleteren 8 are extremely rare beers, wanted by about every beer idolizer in the world. You can buy Westvleteren 12 and try it, but it can only be purchased from their brewery. Until now!
