A few of you may well know of American Lambic fanatic Chuck Cook, well he’s currently in Belgium and at the weekend visited the In De Vrede cafe at the Westvleteren brewery and whilst there picked up a 6 pack box of Westvleteren 12 (as you would
) anyway he posed a pic of said box on his Facebook page and I noticed that things have changed slightly….extra wording has appeared.
It now clearly states a price paid for the 6 pack (23 euros) and also the words - Can only be sold at “In de Vrede” Westvleteren are now clearly stated.
I can’t see this getting around the problem of black market resales (you can just sell the bottles individually) but the boxes are now not a sellable commodity.
