westvleteren - The Flemish fathers who brew the exclusive Trappist beer Westvleteren, have buried the battle ax with the Dutch supermarket chain Jan Linders. The Flemish broadcaster VRT reports that they were not taking legal action, after the company had promised not to sell the Trappist again.
Jan Linders recently sold about three hundred crates, 'to let the consumer get acquainted with this beautiful beer'. The abbey was very upset about this. The famous beer is brewed only in limited quantities. It is normally only for sale at the Saint Sixtus Abbey itself, after telephone reservation. Customers receive a maximum of two crates and must wait two months for their next order.
