The current issue of Imbibe magazine has a list of what it calls the best 99 (really 100 and really several lists) bottled beers in the world.
Good beers, but of course we know any list of “bests” is still just a list. I’ve rattled on about that enough.
But in case you like I noticed Ommegang’s Three Philosophers hanging out with the barrel-aged beers and thought, wow, I need to get some of that . . . you can’t. Three Philosophers remains wood-free.
However, I’m glad I asked because Brewery Ommegang chief information guy Larry Bennett emailed back that, “We just put some Abbey Ale and some of our Adoration Ale (a brand new 10% abv Belgian Winter Ale; dark, strong, with 5 spices,) in barrels.”
