One of the world’s best beers available in Las Vegas—for an extremely limited time

Image

If you want the chance to sample one of the world’s finest beers, now’s your chance. Only you’ll have to act quickly.

The Total Wine shops in Summerlin (730 South Rampart Blvd., 933-8740) and Henderson (501 N. Stephanie St., 433-2709) today received extremely limited shipments of Westvleteren 12—don’t ask us to pronounce that, please—brewed by the Belgian monks at St. Sixtus Abbey. Why is this a big deal? Because normally you can only buy this beer at the abbey itself, which would require a quite expensive trip to the Belgian countryside. But the abbey requires an expensive renovation, including a new roof. Hence, the monks made the decision to raise the money by sending their beer to the U.S.

Problem is, they didn’t send much. Supplies are so limited that they may be gone by the time you read this. If, however, you’re lucky enough to get there on time, bring some cash. At $84.99 for a six-pack (which includes two glasses), this is some of the more expensive beer you’ll plunk down for all year. And due to scarcity, it’s only one sixer per customer. And no, you cannot put your name on a waiting list.

So please, stop reading this, call Total Wine and see if you’re in luck. Thank us later.
