Limited amounts of "Trappist Westvleteren" are sold at the Sales Center at the monastery, exclusively after having made an advance reservation by telephone.  Due to the limited production, only one type of beer is offered for sale each time the beer is sold.  “Trappist Westvleteren” is only sold to persons for their own use.  Each buyer agrees that the beer will not be re-sold to a third party.

Set your Trappist aside for at least a week and then pour the beer carefully into a chalice-shaped glass at a temperature between 12º C. and 16º C.  With the exception of the “Blond” beer, Trappist beer will keep for years:  give your beer the time and it will continue to ripen.  Store the bottles vertically, not in the refrigerator but in a dark place, between 12º C. and 18º C.  This quality product is delivered in wooden crates which can be re-used only if you store them in a dry room.  Empty crates will be redeemed and the deposit returned only if the crates are not damaged.
