We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

These days, many of the best Belgian-style ales in the world aren’t coming out of Belgium, they’re coming out of Canada. Take Unibroue, one of the most consistently excellent breweries on the globe: Perhaps their best is Trois Pistoles, a strong, dark ale so swimming in complexity you’ll discover new subtleties every time you try it. Caramel brown in color with a full tan head and an aroma that suggests rum-soaked fruit and chestnuts, its bold taste mixes roasted malts with cocoa, mild spices, and dusty old bottles of wine. Don’t gulp, this one. Sip it. Slowly. It's one of the world’s classiest beers and deserves to be savored. Try it at Farmer’s Cabinet.
