Cooperstown, New York is approximately 3,264 miles from Brussels, Belgium but Ommegang Brewery has mastered the distance with their Three Philosopher’s Belgian style ale. 98% ale, 2% ale with cherries added, 9.8% alcohol… 100% palette perfection.
Surprisingly enough, I found this member of the Duvel family of fine ales at my local grocery store. A large bottle cost around $9.99 and poured about 3 glasses.
This powerful marriage of cherries, roasted malts, and dark chocolate is simply salivating! Pair with roasted meats, rich cheeses or simply enjoy solo in place of desert. Add Three Philosophers to your evening to increase your wisdom of fine ales.
