Beer aficionados are pouncing at the rare opportunity to buy one of the world's most elusive and revered beers for the first - and perhaps only - time in the United States.

It is called Westvleteren XII, and it is often hailed as the "world's best beer" by reviewers and fans.

Westvleteren XII is produced by Trappist monks in Belgium and sold at the abbey of Saint Sixtus in the Belgian countryside. The beer can usually only be purchased by reservation at the abbey - and reservations are extremely hard to come by.

But when the abbey found itself hurting for money for an expensive renovation, the monks reluctantly made the decision to sell the beer outside of the walls of the monastery on a one-time-only basis.

That's because the Arena contracts vendors to sell the beer for them. (Any Beer) The Arena wants their piece of the action. Plus, the owner of the concession wants his due. He has to buy the beer, pay rent and insurance. The other 1 or 2 dollars goes to the guys out in the grandstand who are selling it.

Let's not forget sales and income tax for everyone involved.
