    I'll be in Belgium next week and I'm hoping to track down some 3F Armand and Tommy blend. Does anyone know any stores or bars that I could consume or procure this beer at?

    Common in any other part of the world, rare as hen's teeth here. It's funny how that works.

    Definitely no shops that stock it. You can probably have it at the more highly esteemed geuze/lambic places. Verzekering, Heeren, Circus, ... something along those lines.

    Armand 4 =/= Armand & Tommy :slight_smile:

    A&T was released at the Sour & Bitter pre-festival dinner at Copenhagen last year, together with Framboos. It was completely and utterly overshadowed by the latter, because more of them were produced. There was also the lore behind the Framboos, because the Danes had apparently been bothering Armand about it every since he discontinued it from his basic line-up in 1999.

    Armand & Tommy has now been released in Canada (Québec) that I know of, and is supposedly fairly accessible in the New York area. I've spotted (and bought) it on a French webshop, and I got the last bottles there. I still know of a place in the UK that has them, but other than that I'm stumped. Would love to have a few now too, I'm fresh out myself and can't find it here.

    Dennis, thanks for the info man. Jeez, it sounds like I should have booked tickets to Denmark instead, sounds like Belgium is dry of all the good lambics! Oh well, I will drown my sorrows in Jupiler and Leffe

    Yup, no good lambics in Belgium. Crap... if it wasn't for people like Dennis I wouldn't even go there.

    There's was no Armand & Tommy in Québec. Up to now, Alberta has been the only province to get it (105 cases), but Ontario should get the same amount soon.
