‘Best Beer in the World’ Heading to Binny’s

Pre-Order "Beer Lover's Chicago" Today!

Why? Because it's got a ton of beer info in it. And we wrote it.
 

If you’ve heard of Westvleteren 12, you might have heard of it referred to as “the best beer in the world.” When Andrew gave it a shot last August, he confirmed:

This beer was an incredibly balanced, unique, complex beer that I’m still trying to figure out…I walked away from this beer completely blown away by the balance and complexity in the flavors – it’s something that a lot of beers come close to, but don’t quite accomplish.

This beer was worth the wait and lived up to all the expectations. Now it’s your turn to find some.

On that last note, get in line now – it’s coming to Binny’s. Per the Binny’s Blog today, bottles of Westy 12 are heading to Illinois, specifically Bloomington, Downers Grove and Lincoln Park:

 So the rumors are true: Binny’s has been selected as one of the few accounts in the country to carry Westvleteren 12…

The abbey decided to release a limited amount of beer to fund restorations to their abbey, and as such asked certain parameters be met in dealing with this release. The first is that these packs not be broken up: They are packs of 6 11.2oz bottles with 2 special glasses. The second is that the price is consistent: $84.99 per pack. Third, we will be releasing this at 9:00am on 12/12/12. It will be a first come, first served with a limit of one set per customer, with absolutely no holds or orders.

The active phrase there is First Come First Served, so be prepared. You’ve got less than a week to prepare; get your lawn chairs, handwarmers and sleeping bags squared away.
