But [for Westvleteren], when you throw in the taste, A, and B, [the fact] it's brewed by monks, and C, the 'scarcity factor,' that's a lot of it. Beer picked up at the gate must be reserved at least 60 days ahead of time. The "scarcity factor": This is the grail at the center of Westvleteren-mania.

Not only does Westvleteren produce the least of all the Trappist breweries, but its beer is also the hardest to get.

We brew beer to be able to afford to be monks," according to a statement from the Father abbot on the abbey's website. If anything, this has only increased demand. Every customer promises not to sell the beer to others. Even more unethical, over the years certain importers even went so far as registering the beers with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau TTB in order to bring them in and turn a profit.

Ironically, all hell would break loose if a well-known beer from an American brewer was being sold illegally. Refusing any contact is a form of silence too.

Westvleteren is now in the limelight more than ever before.
