OMG Ommegang!

A rare surprise for Salt Lake Beer lovers popped it's head up over the weekend. A few bottles of Ommegang Abby Ale found it's way onto the shelves of the Foothill Liquor Store. Excuse me, that's UTAH State Liquor Store now.

Apparently this was a special order for someone and there are very few bottles left. As far as I know, there are only about ten bottles left as of last night. They are only at the Foothill Store and are $6.95 for a 750 ml bottle. If anyone sees them anywhere else, let us know.

This is a really fine ale. It's burgundy in color and has a variety of aromas, including plum and cinnamon, and packs in flavors such as caramel, toffee, and licorice.

Good luck getting some. Thanks to Douglas for finding these.

Cheers!

Awesome find. Hopefully there's some left today.

The guys at Foothill are awesome. I'm thinking that I should once again, try the old special order. HOTD Adam or Speedway Stout perhaps.

I snagged one of those and we enjoyed it on Sunday. Yum!

I ran up there at lunch and they still had 10 or so. I grabbed a few along with a couple of dark lager Rogue Chatoe they had.
