Delirium Tremens on tap?

Anyone know where it's available in the Boston area? Thanks!

  1. iirc Deep Ellum in Allston had it over the summer. but i don't remember if it was in bottle or draught.
    best to call ahead as they switch their taps out quite frequently.

      They may have it in bottles, but unfortunately not on tap according to their draft list (updated on Oct 4):

      I'd call the Publick House and ask them because they tend to carry alot of Belgians.

      Publick House
      1648 Beacon St, Brookline, MA

    2. Dunno about on tap, it's available at the usual subjects in bottles though. Either way, you've got good taste ;)

      1. Marty's on the corner of Harvard and Comm in Allston sells Delirium Tremens as well as an excellent selection of other international and yummy beers. Love the pink elephants!

        1. I was so shocked by the mere idea of tap Delerium Tremens that I did a little research. It looks like two companies import DT into the US; one's website is down; one only mentions bottles. Have you ever seen it on tap in the US? I have not. But I'd like to!

            A friend just had it on tap in Philly, so it definitely exists; I'm going to be shocked and chagrined if it's at the Independent (we were just there), but maybe so? I'll try there and Publick House... Thanks all!

              I was in a bar just outside Philly 2 weeks ago in Media, PA. The bar was Quotations and they had just run out of their tapped DT when I got there. It was a nice selection otherwise but I was terribly disappointed...but it does exist!

                We definitely had DT on tap in Philly last summer (Eulogy). I am almost positive I've seen it at Publick House and one other place in MA, outside Boston (my memory is failing me right now). I will chime in if I can remember. The Alstrom brothers at Beer Advocate might be a good resource.

                I'm pretty sure I've had it on tap in a few places around the US

                1. re: enhF94

                  Yes, definitely available--Track 84 in Warwick, RI has it on a beer engine even.

                    I beg you, hounds - if you find Delerium Tremens on tap around Boston, please do post. I am apoplectic with anticipation.

                      They have the Delrium Nocturnal on tap at the Publick house very often, so I assume they would probably have the Tremens as well.

                  2. Unless I'm misrecalling, I had it on tap in June at the Independent.
