Thanks to the glory of HD DVR, my dazzling investigative skills (honed from 10 years of being a private investigator no doubt), and the Internet... the beer Zane wasn't even allowed to drink came from the Westvleteren Brewery in Belgium. Founded in 1838, it resides inside the Trappist Abbey of Saint Sixtus of Westvleteren.
The brewery currently brews three beers:
- Westvleteren Blonde (green cap) - at 5.8% ABV.
- Westvleteren 8 (blue cap) - (formerly Extra) at 8% ABV.
- Westvleteren 12 (yellow cap) (formerly Abt), a 10.2% ABV.
So there ya go! The wife and I (along with what may be several more folks from the Extraordinary League of Drinkers) are planning on going to Oktoberfest in 2010, and part of that sojourn will include a trip to Belgium... and the Delirium Cafe.
