How much would you pay for a six pack? Amazingly, $120 is not out of the question for some people. Out in western Belgium, just a few miles away from the border of France, the monks of St. Sixtus brew the top ranked beer in the world. The beer is called Westvleteren, also the name of the town the Abbey of St. Sixtus resides. They only brew three styles of beer, and all are considered somewhat sacred to beer lovers.
The only legal way to get a case of this beer is to call ahead and reserve it. They will tell you a time which to come by and ask for your name and licence plate number of the car in which you will pick up the beer. This is, if you can get through on the phone line, which I hear is constantly busy. You must show up at your reserved time in the correct automobile with the licence plate number you provided. If not, NO BEER FOR YOU! Seriously, I don't understand Flemish, but I saw a guy get turned away. One can drink the beer and buy six packs across the street at the cafe as well. A six pack there cost 15 euros. Best 15 euros my brother ever spent. I better stay on good terms with him.
