The Trappist Monks based at St. Sixtus monastery, respecting their responsibility stay away from treasures, sex and red meat. Also, they utter a word when it becomes impossible. But you can touch space with them over beer phone. Their engagement into producing most expensive brew for years now has earned them voracious customers by maintaining their saintly hangover. Since 1839, around 26 monks have been preparing Westvleteren beer at a distant location near the French border. The facts are enough to urge you taste this beer that offers strengths up to 10.2% alcohol amount and is being recognized as the priciest beer available globally.
Bars ranging from Brussels to Boston and at various online spots, it is being sold for more than $15 for an 11-ounce bottle, which is 10 times the deserving cost demanded by monks, if you are fortunate to get. The monks are making efforts not to reside over a bigger canvas, to stay within limited geography. You may not see Trappist tag on the bottles as these saints don’t believe in creating hype. A word is around that they haven’t augmented their making since 1946. Till date, only fromt gate is the means to pick this pricey brew. Unlike other spirit shops, this requires a pre-fixed appointment followed by a restriction of picking two, 24-bottle cases a month.
This was in order to put a stop on the high-priced online market that is keeping all eyes on it’s the moment of scarcity. If recognition can make a difference and add some weight to the facts I am disclosing then here is one. Two of the American web sites bagged the award of “the 12” best in the world for the Westvleteren’s three products.
