Where to find Fruli/Frubee Strawberry Belgium Beer in NYC

I just tried the most delicious strawberry flavored belgium wheat beer while visiting Toronto Canada this past weekend. It's called Fruli, but I think it may be marketed as Frubee in the US. I was hoping to find this beer again in NYC. Does anyone know where to find it?

      Awww, i live in Queens and rarely venture out to Brooklyn. Oh well, at least that's a better option than traveling to Canada. I checked the list of beers on the new-beer site and it doesn't look like they have Fruli? I'll try giving them a call to confirm. Thanks for your tips and info!

      If anyone else knows of a place in Queens or Manhattan that sells Fruli/Frubee, please do tell. Thanks!

        venture into the wonderful world of beers in williamsburg - the selection there and in park slope - far exceed queens - I live in flushing - and consider the many bars there my local
        give new beer a call - and ask to speak w/ lisa - if they dont have it - perhaps she will order it to you. good luck!

          Thanks for the recommendation on New Beer! I was able to sucessfully purchase a couple of bottles of Fruili and will be back to get more. Although, I think Fruili on tap is a bit better, it's still nice to get the taste of it again.

          To dkb:
          Thanks for the tip on Burp Castle. I will definitely check it out too for Fruili on tap!

    2. It's the best drink in the world, and I fully enjoyed a lovely couple glasses at Burp Castle last night. They change the kegs regulary, so it's best to check their website for what's currently on tap.

        Nice to see Burp Castle is still operating. I visited many years ago, shortly after they opened. I believe it was Brother Bernard who was constantly shooting corks around the room from the bottles he opened.

      2. I believe Liefmans ales will soon be back in the USA, Duvel now owns the brewery. Their Frambozen amd Kriek brown ales were extraordinary especially when Madam Rose was running the place.
