While IBU information can be very useful for home brewing a clone recipe, it does not always tell the entire story.We choose not to include this info because of the difference between absolute and perceived bitterness.I don't drink much hard liquor at all, for no particular reason.
Several of our specialty beers contain ingredients outside of the traditional malt, hops, water and brewer's yeast. We also make several beers containing significant portions of wheat: Oberon and Oarsman throughout the year, Winter White during the winter and Pooltime in the spring.
Because these wheat beers are made throughout the year, there is a possibility that other beers in our portfolio will contain trace amounts of wheat.
You can see what's currently available on our Growler Station by viewing our Growler list toward the bottom of our homepage.
Before we decide to expand to any new state, we want to make sure we have enough beer first.
Making sure we can accommodate that demand is very important to us.
We plan on growing as we always have - slowly, steadily and with purpose.This includes the honey we use in Hopslam, the cherry juice used in Cherry Stout and more. Our hops are primarily sourced from the Pacific Northwest, but we do use hops from other parts of the world as well.Most of the barley we use is grown in the northern, central portion of the U. The water we use comes from an aquifer beneath the city of Kalamazoo.It is important to know before you visit, that our Growler Station does use a counter pressure system to help ensure the quality standards you expect from a Bell's beer.Because we cannot guarantee that other growlers are rated for the same type of pressure, we cannot fill growlers other than the Bell's Growler that we sell online and at our Kalamazoo store.A great example is the difference between Two Hearted and Expedition Stout.
