2014 Breweries


Bollywood Blonde

We brew the Blonde with a unique blend of rich malts, sweet orange peel, spicy hops, and zesty corian- der.
The result is a medium-bodied ale bursting with flavor. It is a dry, slightly tart ale subtly spiced with orange peel and coriander for a zesty almost cidery taste with hints of sweet and tangy citrus. ABV 6% / IBU 7 / OG 1.058

Buzz Saw American IPA

A big, bold hop-forward west coast style IPA. The malt character is subdued to showcase a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial Hops creating a lingering dry finish with notes of pine, grapefruit, and apricot. ABV 7.5% / IBU 51 / OG 1.071

Phat Abbot Belgian Dubbel

A dark, rich Belgian abbey style ale made with Trappist yeast and dark Belgian candy sugar for a more traditional, malty trappist character. ABV 10% / IBU 29 / OG 1.08

Strawberry Blonde

Two Hearted Ale

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale 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. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.ABV 7.0% / OG 1.064
