Westvleteren XII Tasting and Rap Session


Once upon a time, three dudes received an amazing gift in the form of a very rare beer. They recently got together, shot a video about it, and ended up in a conversation about rare beers in general.

    Great review, even better that it was done by the three amigos.

    Well done, keep em coming !!

    Personally I love that “exclusive” feeling that you get that comes along with having a rare item (beer or otherwise), but at the end of it does the price really justify it or is it just a novelty?

    Thanks guys, Sounds like an interesting beer. Glad to you guys back together for another vid. Looking forward to following all the blogs. Keep them coming. Would love to see some killer recipes for food and beer in the future.

    I had the Westy 10 and 12 last weekend.
    I do think they are great beers, but as you covered, they are somewhat hyped up to a level where the scarcity surpasses the quality of the beer.

  5. Awesome to see you guys together and an spot on review of this beer. We had the pleasure of trying a bottle at a club meeting and it was a treat. I agree that the story is part of what makes this beer what it is, it was like drinking a bit of history. And a d@mn good beer.

    Keep up the good work, Chip!!

    Every beer geek and true Belgium Beer lover needs to eventually head to Mecca and visit some of these places. Even going to pick up some Westy at the Monastery is an adventure!

  11. Great to see you three in front of the camera again! Hope you get to film some new stuff together. Keep up the good work.
