Bell's Harvest Ale

American Pale Ale - 5.7%
The ingredients of Harvest Ale directly reflect our interest in local agriculture and tradition. The malt comes from barley grown in Michigan specifically for Bell's, much of it on our own farm near Shepherd MI, while the whole-cone hops were plucked from bines across Michigan. The home-grown malt has a distinctive candied apple character that pairs well with the mixture of grassy & fruity hop aroma, yielding a very drinkable celebration of the harvest.

Bell's Raspberry Ale

Fruit Beer - 5%
The vivid red hue and tart finish of Raspberry Ale come from the use of massive amounts of Michigan-grown whole raspberries. We have sourced raspberries for this beer from the same local farm for over a decade. Intensely flavorful, Raspberry Ale focuses on the contribution of local agriculture and follows a Bell's tradition of leaning towards using tart flavors to complement malty notes, rather than additional sweetness.

Bell's Expedition Stout 2013

Imperial Stout - 10.5%
One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.

Bell's Expedition Stout 2012

Imperial Stout - 10.5%
A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.

Bell's Expedition Stout 2011

Imperial Stout - 10.5%
A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.

Bell's Expedition Stout 2010

Imperial Stout - 10.5%
A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.

Wheat Love Wheat Wine Ale

American Barleywine - 8%
Bell's Wheat Project (2005) is an experimental foray into the development of complex flavors in beer, culminating in Wheat Love Ale. Bell's Wheat Love Ale is made with eight yeasts and 8 different wheats, resulting in a strong "wheatwine." Big notes of spice and fruit define this extremely uncommon style.

Bell's Special Double Cream Stout

Sweet Stout - 6.1%
Sweeter and smoother than Kalamazoo Stout. A beer for special winter occasions. Great with chocolate desserts.

Bell's Winter White Ale

Witbier - 5%
A Wheat Ale brewed with American Wheat and a proprietary blend of Hefe and classic Belgian-style yeasts. A refreshing winter alternative created from the subtle fusion of two classic flavors a mixture of clove and fruity aromas.

Bell's Christmas Ale

Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer - 5.5%
In contrast to many other seasonals, Christmas Ale doesn't contain any spices: all of the dry, toasted notes & subtle toffee flavors come from the 100% Michigan-grown barley, custom malted by Briess Malting, while a blend of hops from Michigan & the Pacific Northwest lend earthy, herbal aromas. At 5.5% ABV, it stands as a smooth, highly drinkable beer intended to complement holiday menus, not overshadow them.

Bell's Amber Ale

American Amber Ale - 5.8%
Our flagship beer is made from mostly pale malt with some Munich and caramel malts. This gives it a slightly sweet flavor that is balanced by a melange of American hops. The result is a deep copper color and rich flavor.

Bell's Two Hearted Ale

American IPA - 7%
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. Two Hearted is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.
Cheers!
