Meh. Sorry, but the beer ain't worth that much. I got the 6-pack a few months ago, had one bottle and gave another away. I still have 4. They're down in the cellar with the crappy beer that will never get drank.

You're welcome to bring me lots of great American craft beer to trade for them, if you want.
I had some a couple of years ago, and still have 2 bottles that friends brought back from Belgium.  It's a good beer, but IMO it's not worth what they're asking let alone the ebay prices.  Have fun, share it with friends, but don't break the bank getting it.

I have a hard time paying more than $10 for a 24 Oz bottle. :)

Side by side of the Brick Pack vs a bottle from Belgium.
