Westlvelteren 12 to hit US shelves in late November or early December

16 Nov

Got word from 3 different sources in the last 24 hours that the much awaited, long anticipated US release of Westvleteren 12 will happen in the coming weeks. Shelton Brothers is the US importer, and the gift sets, which will contain 6 bottles of Westvleteren 12 and 2 commemorative glasses, will be available on a very limited basis either the last week of November or early December.

I’m still working to find out the anticipated price of the gift sets, but it seems it will be higher than the originally reported $85.

Westvleteren 12 is the #2 ranked beer in the world according to Beer Advocate. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had it before, and it is glorious. You can rest assured I will grab a gift set if at all possible.

More details to follow as they come to me.

UPDATE: Release date is set, appropriately enough on 12/12/12. Thanks Ryan!
