    The Fantome is 4.1 €... I bought two bottles so 8.2 €... Gotta check the left column for the singular prices...

    And yeah: I consider the special Cantillons at 10 €/ pop a tad expensive... :embar:

    All things considered that isnt a terrible price for it. Ive seen it around 13-14 at some places. Interestingly enough tilquin and 3F are cheapest at HF.

    By far my fav geuzes actually... If we don't take into account certain stronger, "bastardised" geuzes eg. Boon Vat 44 and Boon Mariage Parfait... Cause those are unbelievably good as well...

    the cicerone was telling me that when he goes to tastings he brings his utopia because even though it's widely available people appreciate it because it costs a lot. he thinks its a bargain because he gets to try beers that are $700, $800 in the secondary market.

    I heard a thing on NPR yesterday about beers selling for $1200/btl on the secondary. Yowza.

    Bottled up my Chili Porter.

    Figured it seemed like something that would do better shared in small servings (dunno that I want to drink a whole 12oz of spicy beer) so I reused the two 750 growlers from the beer swap and a bomber I had laying around. Still ended up with 16 12oz bottles.

    Wonder if this will be any good. The little bits of sample I tried weren't overwhelmingly spicy.

    Had the Alesmith Speedway Stout yesterday... Most balanced and rich stout I've had so far. Granted I haven't really tried many, but still...

    You 'mericans are alright :cheers:

    Try that bcbs barley wine. Texture is lovely. Velvety and very balanced. It's a mixture of bcbs and a barley wine they brewed and then I think matured for longer in bourbon barrels. I could be wrong tho

    Just finished thef Stumpy Duck I picked up last week. I prefer their farmhouse ales (though the distinction between the various iterations seems nominal).

    Have you tried the oysters at Row 23? Excellent and a great beer list.
