St. Bernardus Abt 12 Special Edition
Last night brought a visit to the Beer Yard in Wayne, PA. Seems that they've come into a little stash of the Special Edition Abt 12 from St. Bernardus. Some quick notes about the brew that I lifted: Crafted by Brewmaster Bert Van Hecke to celebrate the brewery's 60th Anniversary. Brewed with hops from Poperinge: Challenger and Golding, along with black, amber, Munich and pale ale malts. After a quick e-mail around to the fellow imbibers, we had a group to share this case. Each bottle comes packaged in its own collector's tin. Now for the sampling! Of course, I am very torn between how much to drink now and how much to save. At the Beer Yard, they claim people are snapping up multiple cases for just that reason. These are very happy problems indeed!
