blackalbertOne of the most sought after beers in the world is now available in the St. Louis region. De Struise‘s Black Albert Royal Stout was originally brewed exclusively for Ebenezer’s Pub in Lovell, ME.  This beer is one of the highest rated beers in the world; BeerAdvocate’s December magazine rated it as the #1 beer in the world and RateBeer readers rated it the #4 beer in the world in Ratebeer’s Best 2008.

I’ve been told that this will be available at locations around the St. Louis area, but Paul from the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton has received it for sure.  Just a forewarning, it ain’t cheap.  I don’t remember the exact price, but a 330ml bottle was almost 10 bucks.  So, have your wallet and your taste buds prepared.
