Westvleteren 12 Gift Pack Release

Date:
Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 
Details:





All of our winners were emailed today.  Check your email to see if you were one of the lucky ones to be able to buy a gift set  Please do not call the store to ask if you won, you will be contacted if you do win.  If for some reason any winners cannot pick up their gift set, we'll draw someone else to get that package, so you might be contacted later this week in this case.

Note, if you do not live locally to the Louisville Metro area and are entering in the lottery for the Westy 12 Gift Sets, please note that by law we can not and will not ship these out to anyone.  You must be present to pay for this is you are drawn. Do to the scarcity of this package and the demand, we can only hold your gift pack for 72 hours after the 12th of December.  Our plans are to start notifying people on December 10th so that they have adequate time to make plans.

Keg Liquors is one of the few stores in the State of Indiana that is scheduled to receive one of the most sought after beers in the world. Due to the scarcity of the beer and the limited amounts that will be available, we will be using a lottery system to make things more fair and easier for us to get it sold to people.

Pricing on the gift set is:
Cash - $85.00 plus sales tax
Credit Card - $90.00 plus sales tax.

We are charging the extra $5 for credit card use to cover the expenses that we incur via the use of credit cards.  This will allow us to maintain the price that the Abbey was looking for, but if you have to use a credit card, we will not lose money on the transaction.

So here is how we are going to run it. In the body of an email, send your name, phone number and email addr
ess to orders at kegliquors dot com (sorry, we have to spell it out to keep from getting a lot of spam messages to this account). You will be placed into the lottery and we will draw names based on the number of gift packs we receive. Please do not respond to this event, or contact us via Facebook, email reservations are going to be the only way to keep everything straight.

There is a limit of one gift pack per customer. If drawn, you will receive an email and a phone call letting you know that you are eligible to purchase the gift pack. You'll have 48 hours from the time we notify you to get in contact with us to arrange your purchase.

Each gift pack contains 6 bottles of Westvleteren 12 in 11.2oz bottles and two Westy logo glasses.

The Abbey of St Sixtus, located in the far west of Belgium, is home to 24 monks, and the Trappist Westvleteren brewery that they have operated since 1838. The brewery is one of only six Trappist breweries in Belgium, and is the second-smallest of them. (Only the Achel Trappist brewery is a bit smaller.) It produces about 50,000 cases of beer per year, which is sold only at the gates of the Abbey, one case per customer only. It makes only three beers – Westvleteren Blonde, Westvleteren 8°, and Westvleteren 12°. About half of the brewery’s production is of Westvleteren 12°, the most popular of the beers and, as every beer aficionado knows, the highest-rated beer in the world. The Abbey has created the Westvleteren XII gift boxes, and allowed the sale of its beers outside of the Abbey’s gates for this one time only, in order to raise money for much-needed building renovations.
