Two Hearted IPA – This is the brew our customers have been asking for, a single hop IPA, brewed entirely with Centennial hops. Bell’s adds hops at two stages during the brewing process, resulting in “pine to grapefruit” notes. 7% ABV

Oberon Ale – Just in time for spring, this seasonal wheat ale is brewed with only four ingredients, including Bell’s own ale yeast. Bell’s describes Oberon as having “spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas.” 5.8% ABV

Black Chocolate Stout – Brooklyn Brewery

Brooklyn-Black-Chocolate-Stout

Our featured beer for January 2019 comes from New York City’s Brooklyn Brewery – Black Chocolate Stout. The brewery states that the chocolate comes from a carefully selected malt bill of 2-row, caramel malt, malted wheat and various American roasted malts. Additionally, two types of hops and an ABV of 10.0% complete this Russian Imperial Stout.

Brooklyn Brewery suggests this malty high alcohol brew is a good candidate for cellaring, or pairing with deserts, potent cheese and keeping warm.

The critics at Beer Advocate seem to agree Brooklyn has brewed this one right, with score of over 4/5 currently out of over 6,800 reviews.
