Where to buy Chimay Blue (not at a bar)?

I had Chimay Blue for the first time recently and am in love. Where can I buy bottles of it, so I can drink it at home? I live around Grosvenor, but am willing to go into DC to buy it, or farther out in MD.

    Whole foods usually carries it. I have seen it at Wegmans as well.

      In DC, or just VA? In MD they don't.

        I would have thought it was store wide, but I shop in Arlington and Fairfax for the most part.

          Apparently Calvert Woodley at VanNess has it, the guy says it's "like 10 bucks" for a 750. And Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits has it for I think he said 12.99.

          Trader Joe's carries several of the Chimay varieties including the blue. (At least in VA)

            Harris Teeter carries them as well, at least the one by me has them.

            I would think that any reasonably good wine and beer shop will have it. It's not rare.
