In the past few years I've become more interested in Trappist beers (who wouldn't be?). Buying a Chimay or a Rochefort at the LCBO in Ontario is something I now do on the regular.
However, I've heard recently that the shipping process from Europe to the shelves in an LCBO in Ontario takes a long time, and is not always friendly to the beer.
So I wonder:
- what exactly is the process to get a Trappist from Europe to Ontario?
- does this process often take it's toll on the beer?
