Brouwerij de Molen -- Netherlands

We are proud to bring these 2 new brews to St. Louis!

De Molen
Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout...$21.99 / 25oz btl
A very small production stout that comes in a vintage looking label and it is corked finished like Champange and then covered in black wax. Very nice packaging. The front label gives you all this information:
Handcrafted Beer
Brewed December 14, 2007
Bottled February 1, 2008
only 524 BOTTLES made and each bottle numbered
This beer can age for 25 years
We only have 6 bottles with bottle numbers #306, #344, #375, #386, #387, and #427

"Commercial Description: Color 199.7 EBU, bitterness 81.7 EBU, OG 1102, FG 1026, hops are Premiant and Saaz. This beer is only brewed a couple of times each year. The 2007 version has 297 bottles (brewed March 17th 2007, bottled April 27th 2007). Best before 25 years after bottling." --rated 96 percentiel on

"The most notable beer of the bunch coming overseas is the Rasputin Imperial Stout. According to British Guild of Beer Writer and beer blogger, Ron Pattinson, “[the brewer, Menno] brews it just once a year in very limited quantities. It’s wonderful stuff. You have about two weeks to get to Bodegraven, judging by the depleted shelves, if you want to try the 2007 vintage.” The label (see below) shows that the batch was only large enough to fit 499 bottles. It has not been confirmed whether all bottles will be hitting the states." --
