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.
