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

kallisti Jul 31, 2009 08:40 AM

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.

    Rodman's at White Flint has it for 15.99 for the 750ml bottles.

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

              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.

                    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.

                    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.
