50 Beers to Try Before You Die

Thought the beer snobs here might like this article (and probably critique the hell out of it).

http://www.wisdeo.com/articles/view_post/2984
(CBS) You've heard of "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"?

How about 50 to try before you die?!

Don't get me wrong, Westy is worth a try for certain, but you won't find me spending $80+ for 4 12 oz bottles and a cheap glass (which is how they sold them in the US last year).
Did you try it domestically? I've heard there is quite a difference from what you would get should you be fortunate enough to be near the Abbey vs the bricks they sent over here.

I've had the Belgian bottles several times and the "Americanized" version only once. I have never noticed an appreciable difference between the two, even when having them side by side.

There's no difference. I've had Westy 12 from the "bricks" that were sent over to the U.S. last year, and I've had Westy 12 at Abbey de Saint-Sixtus.

I've never had it, but also didn't feel like shelling out cash for the brick when it came out. I've only had Trappist style beer, and would take a good porter over it any day.

In any case, I think I'd still like to try it, but I would definitely prefer it to be over there vs here.

Find your local craft beer club or homebrewer's group and see if they do tastings. That's how I've had all of the Westy 12 that I've tried.

You guys are talking way over my head now. I'll pay $15 for a high end 750 I know I love but that's about where I draw the line. If something is worth $80 a 4-pack, I'll never find out unless one is handed to me. Strange how my attitude has changed over the years. I used to throw around Benjies like they were nothing at all.

Pretty much this, except I did pay $24/bottle for the vintage Rodenbach. And it was damn tasty.

The reason for that price was that Westy 12 isn't sold outside of the monastery typically and when the 4 pack bricks were released last year, it was to raise money for the monastery. No releases here in the US before or after.

The only way to get that beer typically is to get it when you're in Belgium or have someone ship it to you from there. The mark up on it was unreal when Shelton Brothers importers brought it over for retail sale.

This year's batch just hit JoMo. If you like Imperial Stouts this is awesome.

You're in for a treat with this one. Brewed with cocoa nibs and raisins and then lovingly aged in rum, sherry, bourbon, brandy and whiskey barrels, this big beer takes on flavors from the spirit and wood of each barrel. The end result is a complex and elegant companioin that's right for carefree nights of privilege and excess.
