Rochefort 10 for $3.60 ?
Outstanding beer at an outstanding price.
There goes my entire budget for this winter.

Hopefully all the hipsters with ample spare time lining up for the "best beer in the world" Westy gift packs last year don't find out this one is in the same league and a whole bunch cheaper.

720 bottles? That's a devastatingly low number of bottles.

Trying to create another Westy-like rush?

That doesn't make any sense. The Rochefort 8 flew off the shelves and they seemed to have thousands of bottles. I suspect this will be a mad, mad rush to just get a few.

I'm glad that the R10 is coming, but sad that it will be essentially as rare as the Westy. I'm so envious of the US where they can find R10 in the grocery store. :(

Rochefort 10

Postby esprit » Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:10 pm

720 cases of Rochefort 10 arrived in the LCBO warehouse last week. That''s 17,280 bottles so should be enough to go around.

Couldn't you have just left the PANIC button pressed a little longer Peter ;)

Thanks for getting this in BTW.

I have been waiting until December to take a trip to our local LCBO. The way things are looking, I should get there soon.

thanks for the information. Is this a large quantity? How much of the renaissance/fullers/etc did we get? (will there be enough founders to go around)

Yeah, my LCBO contact let me know a couple of days ago that the listing of it as a 6 pack on the original list was a typo. I'll go back and correct the first post...
