    Can't say I've had that one. The Courage brew is cool too because I believe it is the original 1795 recipe made for Catherine the Great of Russia. If you are someone who cares about the history of the beer you are drinking (as I am), it makes it a real pleasure to drink. I'll watch for the Narwhal.

    My local bar had a Sierra Nevada tap takeover last week and they brought a pin of it. Mind was blown. I'm drinking one now

    So this thread inspired me to give some Mikkeller another shot. Tried the American Style IPA and the Monk's Brew. The IPA was very good but, as some other people have suggested, I can get something just as good for a much better price. The Monk's Brew was mighty nice and more or less in line with the price and quality of a good Abbey Ale. Didn't really blow my mind but I would probably buy it again.

    Have you tried Black Hole? Its quite nice. Surprisingly, so is Black, despite (or because of) its 19% alcohol.

    I assume you guys are referring to Westvleteren? That is going to be available in the US? If so where? I was under the impression that it wasn't exported.

    It's going to be in Canada as well. At least Ontario anyway. The LCBO is selling it in 6 packs for $75. I believe they come with a glass or two.
