A Note on This Beer
Today’s brew sparks a lot of conversations.
Sometimes, it starts off like, “Wow! I’ve never had Brewery Ommegang before! They’re from New York? And they won the Best Mid-sized Brewery at the World Beer Cup?!”
Or, craft fans talk about how the base beer for today’s Wine Barrel-Aged Three Philosophers is ranked in the Top 25 Quads of all time on BeerAdvocate!
Yet almost every time, especially after finishing the 9.3% ABV can, someone eventually asks, “Who the heck are the Three Philosophers?”
Get ready to dominate the next bar trivia because we’re about to roll deep with some knowledge! The philosophers on today’s bottle are inspired by a William Blake satire and represent three characters: Quid the Cynic, Sipsop the Pythagorean, and Suction the Epicurean.
Sipping on today's beer, you may find yourself pondering the deeper meaning of the mahogany-colored pour, like a modern-day philosopher!
As the elevated tannic profile rolls across your palate with subtle hints of dark fruit, you'll contemplate how the brewery draws out so much complexity from barrel-aging with cherries for three months in red wine casks.
With waves of oaky molasses and chocolate-dipped figs gracing your lips, the quivering realization that you must share these uncomparable flavors with others may strike like lighting!
So invite over some of your closest beer buds, crack open Wine Barrel-Aged Three Philosophers and spark-up some profound conversations.
Whether you evaluate the taste, discuss the process, or simply indulge in every delicious drop - you’re going to blow your friends away with today’s world-class brew.
