I shared a glass of this devine beer with a belgium beer bar shop owner who tells the following story.
Supposedly, the monks who produce this beer prohibit resale or any distribution outside of the town it is produced. It is made solely from consumption inside the monestary and the immediate surrounding area. However cases were stolen and an export agreement was forged for shipment to the US. Word has gotten out and only the few remaining cases are left in the country.

I have access to 10 more bottles and need to know if I should stock up?

Jims, fact or myth?
