Bell’s Brewery – Two-Hearted, Amber & Oberon Ale

Bells-crop-wide

Customers have been asking for it for years , and now we’re finally able to bring you beers from Bell’s Brewery of Comstock, Michigan. Our first offering from Bell’s is a nice variety of three different styles of beer.

Bell’s Amber Ale – This is the flagship beer the brewer credits with their success, an American amber ale that Bell’s describe as “Toasted and sweet caramel malts balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas.” 5.8% ABV

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

Please Note: Oberon is not pictured above due to our first batch selling out before the photographer arrived!

Our featured beer for January 2019 comes from New York City’s Brooklyn Brewery – Black Chocolate Stout.

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.
