Bell’s Brewery | VT Kickoff & Free Tasting | 3:30-6:30 PM Thursday June 21st

Bop into the Bevie for brand new, bodacious beer by Bell’s Brewery!

Sample fresh, craveable brews from a 100% family owned, independent brewery that takes care of its employees as well as your thirst for delicious beer.

 

New Bell’s Brewing Beer:

Bell’s Brewery | Two Hearted Ale –
Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter.  Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.  7.00%

Bell’s Brewery | Oarsman Ale –
First brewed in 2008 at our original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo, Oarsman Ale grew out of our desire to explore the tradition of session beers and to create a unique, flavorful experience for everyone, no matter what the occasion.  Tart and refreshing, this sessionable, bright Wheat Ale exudes citrus and lemony aromas from Cascade hops and trades sour intensity for finesse. A perfect companion for any occasion, Oarsman Ale is a beer based in tradition, but with that distinctive Bell’s twist.  4.00%

Bell’s Brewery | Oberon Ale –
Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with our signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. Made with only 4 ingredients, and without the use of any spices or fruit, Oberon is the color and scent of sunny afternoon.  5.80%

Bell’s Brewery | Porter –
Our award winning Porter bridges the gap between malty brown ales and heavily roasted stouts. Notes of chocolate, coffee and roasted barley are offset with just a slight hop bitterness. Enjoy any time of the year.  5.60%

Bell’s Brewery | Lager of the Lakes –
Following in the tradition of Czech Pilsners by offering a combination of firm malt and herbal hop bitterness, Bell’s Lager of the Lakes is as refreshing and crisp as a swim in the Great Lakes. 5.00%

Bell’s Brewery | Amber Ale –
The beer that helped build our brewery; Bell’s Amber Ale features both toasted and sweet caramel notes from carefully selected malts, balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas. Capped by a clean bitterness, it’s incredibly versatile with food, but very tasty on its own.  5.80%

Bell’s Brewery | Kalamazoo Stout –
Named after the city where it all began, Kalamazoo Stout is one of our most classic recipes. This smooth, full-bodied stout offers a blend of aromas and flavors of dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, balanced with a significant hop presence.  6.00%

 

 

Lawson’s Finest Liquids | Typecast New England IPA / Farmhouse Ale | Sip of Sunshine | Super Session 8
