Three Philosophers Quadrepel Brew by Ommegang Brewery

Does anyone know of either a beer distributor or restaurant that sells bottles/cases of this beer? It is from Ommegang Brewery, based out of Cooperstown, NY, and I purchased it recently from a Trader Joe's in the Boston area. However, I live in Philly and would love to get this as a Christmas present for a friend who is also local. Any assistance in where to find this stuff in the general Philadelphia area would be great--I'm willing to travel a bit for it too. Thanks in advance!

  1. For single bottles try the two Foodery locations. For cases contact Bell's Beverage.

      Thanks! I just called Bell's and unfortunately they don't carry this brew but it sounds like Foodery does--they are just currently out of it so I'll check back with them in a few weeks. Thanks again!

        If you're still having trouble tracking this down, I'm pretty sure I saw some bottles of this on the shelves of Canal's in Cherry Hill. Just take the Ben Franklin and stick to 38 until you see it. Of course, you did the smart thing and called the two places I mentioned earlier first, so do that again with Canals

        good luck!

    2. Ommegang is not that rare around here, you can probably get it at Total Wine and More, just over the DE border on Naaman's Creek Road, off I-95. They had Hennepin and Rare Vos last time I was there, not sure about Three Philosophers. There's also a distributor on Washington Ave. around 2nd St. that' pretty good, I can't think of their name right now.

      1. You should try Stone's Beverage in Fairmount. It's on 13th and Fairmount--I might be wrong about 13 but it is on Fairmount. They have a lot of beer. I feel like I've seen Ommegang beer there but can't recall if that's was the one. Give them a call. Prices are really resonable too.

        1. Society Hill Beverage is the name of the one on Washington ave.

          1. I've gotten bottles to go at Eulogy and maybe Monk's does the same--Pretty safe bet that they'd have it. Also, why don't you just call or e-mail Ommegang and ask them...

              North Third also has it and they sell bottles to go.
