    I would like to try the Rochefort brews, but it's much less convenient to buy it in singles. It's pretty damn expensive.

    Re: The beer thread!

    While not cheap it is comparable to buying it by the glass at a bar.

    Even with the price bump that bars have? It's like $7 a bottle at the place I go to, both 8 and 10. I hear 8 is better than 10.

    Re: The beer thread!

    Rochefort 10 at the Mussel Bar is $15. Buying a single bottle cost $10 and change. Some beers, like Orval, would be priced the same whether at a pub or from the store. I can't speak for Rochefort 8, I have not had tried it yet, but Rochefort 10 is very interesting. It's a bit like a more balanced Kasteel Triple. There is a strong alcohol flavor but it is balanced by a nice fruitiness with hints of berries. A great beer for anyone looking for a strong ale but not a favorite of mine.

    Corsendonk Double was very good, not as good as the Christmas blend but still recommended. A little drier and more tart than the average Belgian ale. I'm going to try the triple tomorrow.

    Wow, well from what I'm getting is you need to find a better store to buy your beer from. You mentioned how much something was previously and it was much more expensive for you than it's price at where I go

    Looks like $7ish to buy at stores, $10-16 at bars.

    Re: The beer thread!

    It's also due to it being imported as well.

    We import it too :-)
    I don't think any transport justify such a price difference. But maybe they are imported in very low quantity making it a rare product

    But there's not an Ocean separating you

    Not saying the dollar doesn't factor into it, but beer (even beer that originated in foreign countries) which is brewed/bottled here is much cheaper. Weihenstephaner is even pretty cheap in comparison to many Belgian brews.
