Duchess de Bourgogne in Calgary?

I had a Duchess de Bourgogne beer with dinner at Belgo. I've never had a beer quite like it. It's a Flemish red ale, poured into a red wine glass - which I found strange - until I tasted it. Amazing. Chocolatey with hints of sour cherry and balsamic vinegar. In a beer! The distinctive taste comes from being aged in oak barrels.

Anyway, does anyone know if this is available at any liquor stores in Calgary?

  1. I've found Duchess de Bourgogne at Kensington Wine Market and Willowpark.

    Nice to hear Belgo's got *something* beyond the usual suspects. For a Belgian place, I've always felt their beer list was inexcusably shallow.

        If you're ever back in Edmonton, the ultimate beer store is Sherbrooke Liquor Store on Groat Road and 107 Ave on the NE side of the traffic circle. They have *every* single beer that is available for import from the ALCB list. I love stopping by and picking up a random beer type!
