The Westvleteren 6 is a product from the Trappist brewery of Westvleteren, founded in 1838 in the Saint Sixtus Abbey ("Sint-Sixtusabdij") in Vleteren, Belgium. A small village near Poperinge, a city known for its hops production.
The local production of this beer is not designed to supply the growing global demand. It can only be sold in small quantities on a weekly basis at the doors of the monastery where only individuals (no companies!) can come and buy their previously ordered lot of bottles. This explains why Westvleteren 6 remains a highly exclusive beer.
