The numbers from StatsCan indicate this as well, with 436,000 in Toronto and 348,000 in Vancouver. <a href="http...

RE: Belgians Queue For Rare Trappist Brew

It's a fantasmic beer. I had it in September in Toronto and was well worth the $50 price tag. Admittedly it was very off-limits for the bar to have it, but I am sure glad they did.

Belgian trappist ales are the best beers in the world in my humble opinion and Westy 12 is at the top of that list.
