I was wondering if you knew of a delicious beer from Belgium called Brigand.
In the mid-1990's I used to buy the large bottle (around 25 oz.) version of
this great brew and enjoyed it regularly. It was fantastic top-fermented
brew, usually dated from around 1989-90 (read from the cork). But around
1996-97, Brigand stopped shipping the big bottles to the US (or at least in
Chicago, where I live), started pushing younger, smaller, and less robust
versions of the product in the area, and now have seemed to have disappeared
altogether. What gives?
From Beer Dave: Brigand is a delicious Belgian ale from the little berg of
Ingelmunster. It is imported by Wetten Imports of Fairfax,
