At the moment I am exremly enjoy a great beer by the name of "HobGoblin"
Drinking Corsendonk Pater Dubbel Ale tonight. Have a Corsendonk Agnus Triple and Rochefort 10 waiting in the fridge
I would like to try the Rochefort brews, but it's much less convenient to buy it in singles. It's pretty damn expensive.
While not cheap it is comparable to buying it by the glass at a bar.
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
Are really those price in shops ?! I think the rochefort is between 2€ and 3€ here, it the dollar that weak ?
Looks like $7ish to buy at stores, $10-16 at bars.
Argh, I will never complain to the pint of guiness at 10€ in bar anymore :-)
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
