Beer's Black Market - Washington Post Article

My friend Blake, the head of Brasseurs De La Maison, recently sent me this article about black market beer and it got me thinking... have I ever done this?  Honestly I think the answer is no... I've definitely looked at e-bay before to see if I could get some Westvleteren 12 cheap, as it's considered the best beer in the world by many but I've never pulled the trigger. Some of these rare US released go for hundreds of dollars and as much as I'd love to try all the different beers out there, no single beer can possibly be worth hundreds of dollars.

Anyway, just wanted to pass this article on, it's an interesting read about some of the dirty side of craft beer enthusiasts.
