A quadrupel is a belgium style of ale that is a bit stronger (more alcoholic–this one hits hard at 9.8% ABV) and bolder than typical belgium ales. This beer should suite the fancy of the snob, the novice, the sweet tooth, and/or those who favor bitter flavors. If you find yourself forgetting to go out and buy your beer for our weekly libation, write yourself a memo…or have your secretary do it for you. This highly reviewed brew will not let you down! Pricing varies depending on location. Last week I saw a bottle in a local supermarket for just a hair over six bucks, while surfing the web tonight I saw it up for grabs in a NY market for an astounding $11.99.
Perhaps there are those readers of Thank Heaven for Beer who occasionally find this site stale, predictable, mono-thematic, etc. Sure, this blog is devoted to beer, but like we’ve said before beer is an experience. In fact, I thought of the idea for this week’s beer of choice as I read through a stimulating philosophical article on theories of wealth, the human worker, and economism. So, if you feel so inclined, leave us a comment…let us know what you’ve been reading, thinking about as it might apply to a beer named “Three Philosophers.”
